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 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 are constantly striving to improve and you can see our current School Development Plan priorities here.
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 Thursday. From September 2017 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.
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 mornings when you can hear more about us and see for yourself what we do, you will find the dates and times in the School News or Admissions section. I look forward to meeting you then.
