Welcome to Bletchingdon Parochial C of E School

Shine like stars and become light in our world

I am proud to welcome you to our wonderful school where our Christian values and vision guide and inspire us. The values of courage, love, respect, truth, resilience and unity are embedded in our daily lives.

We are a small, 4 class, village school at the heart of the community, spanning Nursery to Year 6. We are situated in the beautiful countryside just outside Oxford. Our wonderfully designed, modern building offers a hall, well-stocked library, outdoor play area with adventure equipment, wildlife area, garden and multi-purpose sports pitch. The children in Foundation Stage (Nursery and Reception) also have their own purpose-built outdoor learning area.

We provide a warm and nurturing learning environment based on mutual respect, inclusivity and high expectations of all. Children feel safe and emboldened to explore our carefully designed curriculum and extra-curricular activities.

If you would like to find out more or arrange a visit, please contact the school office. We look forward to welcoming you and your family.

How cute is this guy? He has a super important job, and I'm really glad we were chosen to make his new uniform.

This blue blanket is my ‘place’. I lie on it when I am working with the children. When I want a nap or to be comfy I take my ‘place’ and put it a nice warm spot (sometimes in the sun or where the underfloor heating is warmest) and I have a nice rest 💤 👍🏻🐾#cleverdog#schooldog#assistancedog#bletchmerlin#bletchprimary#canineassistedlearning ...
