About Our School
Hello from all of us

School Attendance and Reopening Plans
Following the announcement on Sunday 10th May from the Government of the plan to partially re-open primary schools to pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 from 1st June, we received further guidance on Monday 11th May from the Department for Education. We will take time this week to use this guidance to create our own plans and as such we will update you on these next week.
In the meantime please read the Government's guidance to parents and carers via this link:
We continue to be open for children of key workers and vulnerable children. Thank you for your continued support keeping our staff and children safe.
Do continue to email us if you need to.
We may not be a community in one place for some time, but our school is and will continue to be a strong community to support you and your families.
Recent Ofsted Inspection
We are delighted that Ofsted have continued to judge our school as Good in our recent inspection in January 2020. You can read the inspection report here.
Welcome to Garsington CE Primary School
Garsington CE Primary School is a Church of England one form entry Primary School for 4 to 11 year olds. We are located in Garsington village close to both Wheatley and Oxford. We aim to provide an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice. Developing a growth mind-set is at the heart of everything that we do. We aim to inspire every child to have a life-long love of learning and to aspire to be the best that they can be.
Our School Vision
A vibrant and happy community where everyone can believe and achieve.
The Parable of the Sower (grow and learn like the strong healthy plants) Matthew 13:1-23
Our School Poem
Please read our wonderful school poem 'The Kite That Couldn't Fly' written by Juli Frances Taylor.
We are a school of Red Kite learners. The letters in Red Kite reflect our seven school values. Red Kite learners are:
R = Responsibility
E = Enthusiasm
D = Determination
K = Kindness
I = Independence
T = Teamwork
E = Enrichment
We are very proud of our last SIAMS (Church of England) Inspection. ‘Everyone speaks of the school as a place where children are cared for and where individuals are loved, nurtured and respected whatever their ability or faith. Respectful relationships between everyone in the school are apparent and behaviour is impeccable.’ SIAMS November 2015.
We look forward to welcoming you to our happy school.
