Our Christian Vision and Values

Our vision for Woodstock CE Primary School reflects a passionate commitment to learning and recognition of the uniqueness of individual learners.  Guided by our Christian values, it is driven by our desire to offer the best possible education for our pupils in partnership with parents, the Church and the local community.

‘In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.’

‘Let your light shine’

Matthew 5:16


Recognising our historic foundation, we will preserve and develop our religious character in accordance with the principles of the Church of England and in partnership with the Churches at parish and diocesan level. 

Woodstock CE Primary School strives to be an inclusive community where children grow, learn and achieve together. Within a nurturing, supportive and safe environment, mental health and wellbeing is at the heart of everything we do and recognised as the responsibility of all.  Children’s natural curiosity is fostered through a creative curriculum that excites and challenges, and enables them to be successful learners.  Supported by a culture of equality and aspiration we aim to remove disadvantage so that every child can thrive.

We are committed to providing an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice.  We encourage an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith, and promote Christian values through the experience we offer to all our pupils.

Admissions Arrangements

Children are admitted into school in accordance with Oxfordshire County Council admissions arrangements which are published on the County Council website here.  You can find further information about our admissions here.

Attendance & Opening Hours

There is a clear link between pupils’ achievement and their level of attendance at school. The governors and staff, alongside the LA, firmly believe that all pupils benefit from regular attendance. We want all pupils to achieve the very best they can and for this they need to be in school regularly.

  • To this end we will do all we can to encourage parents/carers to ensure that the children in their care achieve maximum possible attendance and that any problems that prevent full attendance are identified and acted on promptly.
  • The School will provide the attendance record of each child at parent consultation meetings during the year and provide a Certification of Registration for the school academic year with each child’s annual report. The School will also reward pupils with outstanding records.

You can find out further information about attendance and our school opening hours here.

Behaviour Policy

Our Behaviour Policy is the statement of principles, aims and strategies for promoting positive behaviour at Woodstock CE Primary School. We believe a shared commitment from parents, governors and the wider community is an important factor in promoting good behaviour and the fostering of positive attitudes. As a school we ensure that parents and carers are fully informed of our approach to behaviour management by communicating it through the School Prospectus, Home-School Agreement, newsletters and the School’s website. 

Please click here to access our Policies page to view our Behaviour Policy.

Charging & Remissions Policy

Woodstock CE Primary School believes that all our pupils should have an equal opportunity to benefit from school activities and visits (curricular and extra curricular) independent of their parents’ financial means. This charging and remissions policy describes how we will do our best to ensure a good range of visits and activities is offered and, at the same time, try to minimise the financial barriers which may prevent some pupils taking full advantage of the opportunities.

Please click here to view our Charging & Remissions Policy.

Collective Worship

Legal Requirements

The Education Reform Act 1988 requires that all schools have a daily act of worship, either together as a whole school or in smaller groups.  As a Christian Foundation we follow the traditions and values of the Church of England.  In a multi-faith society we aim to encourage the children’s understanding and respect for other faiths.  Worship will be distinctively Christian in character, whilst acknowledging religious and cultural diversity existing in society and the wide beliefs of the local community.

Please click here to view our Christian Distinctiveness area of the website and our Collective Worship policy here.

Complaints Procedure

It is in everyone’s interest that complaints are resolved at the earliest possible stage. Many issues can be resolved informally, without the need to invoke formal procedures. As a school we take informal concerns seriously and make every effort to resolve the matter as quickly as possible.

There are occasions when complainants would like to raise their concerns formally. In these cases, the school’s formal procedure should be invoked.  

Our School Complaints Procedure and Policy can be found here.

OFSTED is the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills. They report directly to Parliament and are responsible for inspecting and regulating schools, pre-schools, nurseries, and any services caring for children and young people, as well as those providing education and skills for learners of all ages. A list of Woodstock CE Primary School's most recent inspection reports can be found here or you can visit our Ofted area of our website for further information.

SIAMS inspection focuses on the impact of the Church school's Christian vision on pupils and adults. This involves looking at the school’s Christian vision, the provision the school makes because of this vision and how effective this provision is in enabling all pupils to flourish. Church schools will employ a variety of strategies and styles appropriate to, and reflective of, their particular context in order to be distinctively and effectively Christian in their character and ethos. SIAMS inspectors therefore do not look for a set template of what a Church school should be like, but rather take the particular context of the school into account and base their evaluation on the outcomes rather than the process.  You can find out more about SIAMS by following this link.

PE & Sports Premium

PE & Sport Premium is funding provided to primary schools to enhance the provision of PE and sport. The Government has committed to keeping the funding in place until 2020. It is for schools to decide how the PE and Sport funding is spent.

Pupil Premium

The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.

Please visit our Pupil Premium area of the website to find out further information and view our Pupil Premium Strategy.

Reading & Phonics

At Woodstock CE Primary School we use the synthetics phonics programme ‘Read, Write Inc.’. Children begin phonics on day one in our Nursery and Reception Classes and are taught daily in small groups. Alongside the groups, teachers will refer to the RWInc programme throughout the day, for example referring to a speed sound or green or red word at any given time. Please visit our English Guidance of the website to find out further information by following this link.

Safeguarding & Child Protection Policy

The Governing Body of Woodstock CE Primary School takes its responsibility under section 11 of the Children Act and duties under “working together” to safeguard and promote the welfare of children very seriously. We work together with other agencies to ensure adequate arrangements exist within our setting to identify, and support those children who are suffering harm or are likely to suffer harm.  Please read our Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy by visiting our Safeguarding information page here.

Special Educational Needs (SEN) & Disability Information

Children  with SEN all have learning difficulties or disabilities that make it harder for them to learn than most children of the same age. These children may need extra or different help from that given to others.

Anne Hipwell is our Inclusion Lead and SENCO.  Any queries or complaints in respect of SEND should be made via the school office for the attention of Anne (full details can be found on the SEND page).
