At Deddington Primary school we believe in the concept of lifelong learning and the concept that both adults and children learn new things every day. We maintain that learning should be engaging and inclusive and an enjoyable experience for everyone; it should be fun. Through our teaching we equip children with the skills, knowledge and understanding necessary to be able to make informed choices about the important things in their future lives. We believe that appropriate teaching and learning experiences help children to lead happy and rewarding lives.


Our Christian values we hold as a school permeate throughout all areas of school life.


Perseverance            Respect          Honesty          Kindness       


Faith   Friendship     Forgiveness   Responsibility


Our Aims

We believe that people learn best in different ways. We aim to provide a rich and varied learning environment that allows all children to develop their skills to their full potential.

Through our teaching we aim to:

  • enable children to become confident, resourceful, enquiring and independent learners who are able to demonstrate perseverance and responsibility for their own learning
  • foster children’s self-esteem and help them build positive relationships and friendships, based on kindness, forgiveness and honesty, with other people- both peers and adults
  • develop children’s self-respect and encourage children to respect the ideas, attitudes, values and feelings of others
  • show respect  for all cultures and in so doing, to promote positive attitudes towards other people
  • enable children to understand their community and help them feel valued as part of this community
  • help children to grow in to reliable, independent, responsible and positive citizens
  • take a pride in their work and the work of others


Our Curriculum

We have revised our child-centred school curriculum to take into account the statutory requirements of the 2014 Curriculum. We aim to innovate our practice to provide contextualised, stimulating learning opportunities which allow our children to access learning. We work as part of a local network of schools (the Warriner Partnership) to share ideas and resources. Although our curriculum is based on the new 2014 National Curriculum there are other planned opportunities that make up the wider curriculum. We believe our cross curricular approach to learning enables children to make logical connections between different aspect of their work and this is how they learn best. We encourage children to have ownership of their learning, supporting children to become ‘aspirational’ in order to make the most of their learning opportunities.
