We sent three teams to Sibford School to take part in the Warriner Family Kwik Cricket tournament. The B and C teams played a round robin tournament while the A team played in a league. Our A team came runners up in their league and therefore had to play the runners up of the other league for the 3rd/4th position. Unfortunately we lost by one point as a very controversial run out was given against us. Everyone had great fun despite the very cold weather.

10/05/2019 - Warriner Family Mini Red Tennis (Year 3&4)


Eight children from Class 3 represented Shenington at the Warriner Partnership School’s Mini-Red Tennis Tournament at Banbury West End. The four boys and four girls showed off their skills, including some nifty backhands, competing in a Round-Robin competition against four other local schools. It was a fantastic afternoon of tennis, with each of our players winning at least one of their matches, and more importantly, showing our school values by demonstrating great sportsmanship. Even better – we won overall! It’s fair to say Miss Spiers and Mrs Musekiwa were very proud of the children’s achievement!

The team were praised for their hard work, comradery and teamwork throughout the tournament.

02/04/2019 - Oxfordshire School Games Cross Country Finals (KS2)


Three children represented the school at the Oxfordshire School Games Cross Country Finals at Abingdon. Despite the weather pouring down with rain throughout the whole event they all managed to keep their spirits up.


Two children participated in the Year 3/4 girls event and out of 140 girls across the county one finished in 1st place and the other in 11th place. What a tremendous performance to finish in gold medal position! Congratulations to them both ... a big well done!


One child took part in the Year 5/6 boys race. Racing against a large amount of competitors he managed to beat his County Finals personal best of 7th last year to finish his primary school cross country racing career in a fantastic 2nd place. Well done!

2014-2015 Highlights

Hornton v Shenington Football Match


Well done to our football team who were superb hosts during the inter school home match against Horton Primary School here at Shenington C of E (VA) Primary School.

27/02/2015 – PE Update


We hope to welcome a sports coach from Bloxham School on Thursday afternoons starting from Thursday 12th March 2015 to teach Hockey to Class 4.


In addition, we will be welcoming a sports coach from the North Oxfordshire Sports Partnership (NOSSP). On Monday afternoons, she will be teaching PE lessons to Foundation Stage, Year 1 and 2 together and Class 3. This will provide another opportunity for Years 1 and 2 to work together.


Furthermore, all Year 1 and 2 will share a session with the dance coach on a Tuesday afternoon. The dance coach will continue to teach lessons to Class 3 and Class 4 too.


Our PE funding from the Olympics 2012 legacy is used to fund these coaches. In addition the funding has been used to pay for the Forest School coaching provision at Upton Estate as well as training for the staff on outdoor learning activities.

09/12/2014 – Dodgeball Extravaganza (Year 3 & 4)


Year 3 and 4 attended a Dodgeball Extravaganza at Warriner School. Other schools from the Warriner Partnership were also there and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. All our pupils entered into the spirit of the event.

Sliver Mark Award


We are delighted to achieve a Silver Sports Mark for our excellent efforts and participation in a wide range of tournaments and competitions. This is a great achievement which recognises the efforts of all of our children, staff, helpers and parents.

PE Update


We have invested half of our PE funding into the NOSSP (North Oxfordshire Schools Sports  Partnership) in order to network with staff in other schools and  to access inter school tournaments and competitions both  within the partnership and also schools in North Oxfordshire, as well as access external coaching (such as the  Bench Ball coaching last year). Our next programme of coaching will begin after Christmas. Without this investment there would be few opportunities for our children to participate in sporting events with other schools.

18/11/2014 – Swimming Gala (Year 3 & 4)


Ten pupils were selected to take part in the Swimming Gala at Sibford School. There were lots of different races and all the schools competed against each other. Some of the races were freestyle, relay, back crawl, front crawl and breaststroke. Our Year 3/4 girls came first and the Year 3/4 boys came second. It was a wonderful day and we all tried our hardest and worked together.

08/11/2014 – North Oxfordshire Cross Country Finals (KS1 & 2)


We took part in the North Oxfordshire Cross Country Finals at Bicester Community College. The first race was for Year 1 and 2 where they had to run 600 metres through some muddy fields. The girls took 7th and 29th place and the boys 1st and 5th place.


An extra loop was added to the course for the older runners. Our girls finished in 24th and 30th place. We were very proud of ourselves and did very well seeing as each race had around 70 competitors.
