Church Of England Primary School
Ofsted November 2016 - This is a good school. The school’s Christian values and spirituality thread through the ethos and culture of the school.
The school is a happy place. The great majority of pupils enjoy coming to school and learning well. Pupils talk enthusiastically about the whole-school topics and different ways in which they are learning. They are proud of their school.
St Edburg’s Church of England School is a voluntary aided school with a history going back over 150 years! We welcome children from all faiths and backgrounds and those of none. We are very proud of our heritage and of our Christian ethos and values.
In January 2016 we re-located to a brand new site on the Kingsmere development in South-west Bicester. We are now in a be-spoke building that provides an outstanding setting for children to learn in and includes a light and spacious Nursery and Early Years unit. We have a full size sports hall and superb outside sports facilities including a large sports field and a multi use games area. Within the school we have a Media suite where children can develop exciting projects including filming, a designated room for art and design projects and a very special gathering place called ‘The Round’ where assemblies, prayer spaces, art exhibitions and music can take place. We have an excellent kitchen that provides hot meals cooked on site every day.
Our school motto, ‘Dare to be Wise’ reminds us that learning is an adventure of discovery! We aim to make that learning journey exciting through the provision of a rich and stimulating curriculum. Children are encouraged to be excellent learners by building on core skills such as problem solving and collaboration in an atmosphere built on Christian values where each child is treated as an individual, developing their sense of worth and confidence.
I am proud to be the Head Teacher of St Edburg’s CE school and to share the life and work of the school with you. Visits to the school are always welcome.
