I am delighted that you have chosen to visit our website today.
Longworth Primary is a small village school, with a safe nurturing family feel. We believe in creating independent learners who aspire to excellence, and we are proud of the results our children achieve (top 15% of similar schools nationally). Ofsted rated us ‘Outstanding’ in our latest inspection.
We deliver a broad and balanced topic-based curriculum, ensuring lessons cater for the needs of all. Our children enjoy our creative approach to teaching, where they are inspired through themed weeks, art days, forest schools, visits, field trips, residentials, music lessons and sports competitions. Each half term we focus on one of our twelve values, equipping our children with the skills and attributes to be successful citizens now and in the future.
Our highly qualified staff exemplify the life-long learning ethos, with a very active program of ongoing professional development that ensures our children benefit from the latest in educational best practice. We focus particularly on the social and emotional aspects of learning as a means to support the academic attainment of all our pupils, with ELSA and SEN training.
We offer wrap around care with our breakfast and afterschool clubs (Pitstop) which run from 8.00am to 5.30pm Monday to Friday during term time. For younger siblings, our on-site pre-school takes children from age two. Both Pitstop and pre-school offer a safe, secure and stimulating environment with a varied programme of activities, and the children are able to use our spacious grounds for sporting activities and outdoor learning.
Longworth Primary School is part of the Faringdon Partnership and most of our children go on to attend Faringdon Community College, also rated ‘Outstanding’, at the end of year six.
