Welcome to North Kidlington Primary School

Gary Kemp - Headteacher

Built in 1961 our school serves the northern area of Kidlington and the outlying communities to the north. The school has attractive grounds, and our buildings include two halls, spacious classrooms and a computer suite.

An open and trusting relationship between the school and home is essential if a child is to thrive at school, and we encourage parents to take an active interest in their child’s education. We strive to create an atmosphere where children feel secure yet challenged.  At North Kidlington School we aim:

  • to provide a high standard of learning and stimulate children’s interests
  • to help children to become independent lifelong learners and good citizens
  • to ensure that all children achieve their full potential

In our OFSTED report in December 2014, North Kidlington School was graded as Good in all areas inspected.  The OFSTED Inspectors reported that the extensive variety of learning opportunities and experiences provided by the school are making a positive contribution to pupil’s spiritual, social and cultural education. They also stated that pupils achieve well in all year groups and by the time they reach Year 6, a significant number are reaching above-average standards in Reading, Writing, Mathematics, Grammar and Sports Skills.

The Inspection Team recognised that North Kidlington School has a strong and committed workforce, who work hard to achieve the best outcomes for the children. The systems put in place since the last Inspection in 2011 have made a positive impact on teaching so that pupils now benefit from good, with some outstanding teaching in all curriculum areas, especially in Writing and Mathematics, which were both key areas for development.

Everyone was delighted with the Inspection report and we are now working hard to make further improvements.

Best wishes.
