Headteacher’s Welcome Message

We are a small, friendly, village school, only five minutes drive from Witney and Carterton.

The dedicated staff strive to provide a caring and well-disciplined environment and ensure, through high expectations, that children reach high standards.

We offer an excellent provision for all children from a very caring, child-friendly Reception to Year 6 where the children are well-prepared socially and intellectually for secondary school transfer. Classrooms are spacious and extensively resourced with reading books, interactive SMARTboards and computers.

We welcome visits to the school from prospective parents to appreciate the school’s facilities and our calm, pleasant and purposeful environment.

The standards achieved and the progress made by our children by the time they leave have been extremely good for several years and well above the average, both nationally and in Oxfordshire.

The school provides a Breakfast Club from 7.45am and an After School Club, which provides care up to 5pm each day. After School Clubs include an environment and multi-sports club, as well as a Primary Engineer and a Computer Code Club for the older children.

Children take part in regular trips to enhance their curriculum topics. The older children are taken annually to see productions at the theatre whenever possible

For more details, or to arrange a visit, please telephone 01993 775394. You may need to leave a message on the answer machine. Please leave your name and telephone number and the reason you are calling and your call will usually be returned the same day.
