Organisation and Admissions
Witney CP School is situated to the north of the town and was the original County Primary School for Witney. It moved to its present site in 1938 and over the years has undergone major remodelling and refurbishment to keep pace with changes in primary school practice. The accommodation consists of a large hall and ten classrooms in the main school building. There is a separate dining hall and kitchen so the school meals are cooked on the premises. We have a small, heated indoor swimming pool run by Water Babies, which provides us with all our swimming needs.
The school grounds are spacious and provide plenty of room for games and sport. They are also a resource for natural history study and we have ponds and a nature reserve as well as flower beds and spring bulb areas. The playground has been arranged so that there are active areas but also quiet areas where children can go if they wish to read or talk.
At the moment we have seven classes in the school. The two key Stage 1 classes are grouped on a yearly basis and the four Key Stage 2 classes are also grouped on a yearly basis. Our Foundation Stage class has a maximum of 30 children on a full time basis. The school has an ICT suite which contains seventeen networked PCs. We have an IPad trolley with 15 Ipads which is taken around school as needed. Classrooms also have interactive whiteboards and access to the internet via the class computers.
The School Day
|8.50am||Children come into school|
|10.30 - 10.45am||Playtime|
|12.00 - 13.00pm||Lunchtime|
|3.15pm||End of school day|
We ask children not to arrive at school before 8.40 am because we cannot provide adequate supervision before this time. Pupils go straight to their classrooms from 8.50am where their teachers will meet them. Pupils are not allowed onto the playground apparatus before or after school, for their own safety.
During the school day pupils will only be allowed to leave the school premises if accompanied by a designated adult. Please inform school about any medical or dental appointments the children may have during school hours. Please report to the school office before collecting the children or when dropping them off.
