A Word

From Our Senior Leadership Team

At West Oxford Community Primary School we have a commitment to nurturing each child’s unique strengths and aspirations as well as providing children with challenge in order to develop their determination, resilience and resourcefulness.

We aim for each child to leave our school with the self-knowledge that they have achieved their very best and have the capacity to continue learning and developing their potential.

Our School

Our Commitment To Literacy

World Book Day is one of the highlights of our year, with children planning their costumes around their favourite books as much as a year in advance! We place literacy at the heart of our teaching strategy, and work to foster a love of reading and writing in all of our students.

Friends of the School

All parents and carers automatically become members of the FRIENDS whilst their children are at the school. A wide range of social and fundraising activities are arranged throughout the year and all FRIENDS are welcome to join in. 

School Meals Menu

School lunches at West Oxford are provided in-house under the management of Ruth Lyster. Ruth and her team provide hot, healthy, tasty lunches each day and where possible will use locally sourced ingredients. Meals cost £2.20, billed through ParentPay.

The Foundation Stage Stay and Play

We all had so much fun at the Foundation Stage Stay and Play! Everyone embraced the Chinese New Year theme and got stuck in making Chinese New Year lanterns and Dragons. The children always enjoy introducing their parents to their friends and showing them their favourite games! Thank you to everyone who attended.
