Shenington C of E (VA) Primary School, charitably founded in 1871, is situated in the picturesque village of Shenington in Oxfordshire, on the boundary of Warwickshire, about 6 miles North West of Banbury. Our school site in Stocking Lane, purpose built in 2004, sits in the beautiful countryside on the edge of the Cotswolds.
We are a small school with a well-established teaching team and a caring community. We serve children aged 4-11 years and have a maximum capacity of 105 children. There are four classes: Class 1 (Foundation & Year 1), Class 2 (Year 1 & 2), Class 3 (Year 3 & 4) and Class 4 (Year 5 & 6). Our children come from various villages in Oxfordshire and Warwickshire, as well as the town of Banbury.
We are a Voluntary Aided (VA) Church of England (C of E) School belonging to the Diocese of Oxford and the Parish of Shenington. The school is controlled by Governors, as opposed to the Local Education Authority (LEA).
One of our unique selling points is that we have continued to be a maintained school, not under any academy umbrella, and as such all our decisions, including financial decisions, are made by our school leaders for our children. We are unique and solely concerned about our children whilst also benefiting from the collaborative company setup with the Warriner Partnership to secure financial good value for money.
However, we do not commit ourselves to only one secondary school and will offer parents the opportunity to access information for all local schools both in Oxfordshire and Warwickshire, including state, grammar and private schools and will liaise with parents at transition points. We support our parents in their decisions when choosing a secondary school place, including taking the Eleven Plus.
We love to meet new parents and children. Contact the school office to arrange to meet the Head Teacher, Miss Sarah Reynolds, who will take you for a personal tour of the school to meet our children and staff.
