Welcome from the Headteacher
Kidmore End School first opened its doors in 1856 to eight pupils. We have grown over the years and we now accommodate up to 210 pupils in seven classes. In August 2017 we became an academy as part of the Oxford Diocesan Schools Trust (ODST).
We are a successful school, deemed by Ofsted in 2011
to be outstanding.
We provide a rich and varied academic curriculum, and also take part in many sporting and cultural events outside school. Teachers run out of school clubs for pupils in Year one upwards, at present these include art, sport, coding, choir, running and gardening.
For children of working parents we offer an after school club (paid) on site from Monday to Friday. A Breakfast Club is also available.
We have close links with the Church, particularly our local church of St John the Baptist, and community and it is our aim to provide a warm and caring learning environment, based on Christian principles.
Pupils, parents and staff from many faiths have commented that they feel comfortable with the accepting, valuing ethos of the school. The most recent church school inspection in September 2016 found the school to be good with outstanding leadership and management.
Our school is in a delightful setting and the children are fortunate to be able to play on the large field, traditional playground, adventure playground, all weather pitch and quiet garden. The children in Foundation Stage have their own outdoor learning area complete with builders' yard and mud kitchen.
As Headteacher, I am totally committed to ensuring Kidmore End CE Primary School aims for the highest standards and as a small village school becomes a thriving, happy and outwardly facing community school serving our local community and beyond. I believe in family and I want Kidmore End to be one happy family focusing on what is best for our children.
I hope that you enjoy browsing the pages of this website which describe the school in more detail. If you are thinking of sending your child here, why not come and see the school for yourself? We regularly hold open days when you can hear more about us and see for yourself what we do, you will find the dates and times in our admissions section. I look forward to meeting you then.
Mr Andrew Griffin
