Welcome to Stanton Harcourt CE Primary School

Red Nose Day  24.3.17

Red Nose day is spectacular and the jokes are really good. Every child has a broad grin on their faces; wonderful to see.


Science week 13.3.17 – 17.3.17

We had an amazing day doing Science with Renee Watson. She showed us how a Volcano works using Vinegar and baking soda showing it reacting and then the build up of pressure then release. She then showed us what happens when she mixes Yeast and Hydrogen Peroxide with some colour powder and washing up liquid. The results were brilliant to see with the children’s reactions.

“I like it when we put all the ingredients in a jar and it went Boom!”

Class 3 were doing a CSI investigation

“Our class found out who stole the trophy.”

Class 2 were making Potions

“I liked it when we added the blue dye and when we shook it it changed from blue to clear.”

Class 1 and FS were looking at seeds

“I liked it when we put socks on our shoes.”

Mr Laithwaite (senior) came in to show KS2 some science on Friday during Science Week. He showed us lots of different experiments and explained to us what  an alkaline and an acid was “We smelt the vanilla on the dry ice.”

“We watched the dry ice bubble, it was cool.”

The value for this term is ‘Tolerance linking to Equality’. 


 We will be looking at being a citizen of Great Britain, the global community, tolerance with each other and within our community and linking with Jesus’ teaching of caring for everyone regardless of race, colour or where they came from.
Mark 10:13-14   ‘And they were bringing children to Him so that He might touch them; but the disciples rebuked them.  When Jesus saw this, He was indignant and said to them, “Permit the children to come to Me; do not hinder them; for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.”



 Our school is a member of the Eynsham Partnership Academy
Every Person Achieves 


Stanton Harcourt Church of England Primary School provides a happy, nurturing and supportive environment founded on the principles of the Christian faith.  We are fair, respectful and make sure we all work together to live up to our school motto of:

Care  Respect   Equality  Achievement  Trust  Excellence

All members of our school community are valued and respected in order that everyone can have a positive attitude towards themselves, others and life.  Everyone works together to ensure that all of our children experience success and reach the highest possible standards of academic achievement, whilst nurturing their self belief enabling them to become proactive future citizens.

The children in the school collaborated with the school community to create their school vision which is:  “We are a small school with a big heart”.

Through our close links with parents, the community and the local church  St Michael’s Stanton Harcourt, we endeavour to ensure we do indeed have a ‘big heart’.

The school provides a rich and creative curriculum to ensure all learning is taught through a range of real and creative experiences through a child-centred, enquiry based approach which celebrates the success and achievement of all.  A child is at school for 12% of the year so we really need to make those hours count! We provide places for pupils for children aged 3 to 11, the pre-school are taught within the reception children in the FSU.

The school buildings are well cared for and we have grounds with hard surface areas, a spacious playing field and adventure play equipment.

The school warmly welcomes visitors, please do come and look around the school to see for yourself what a special place it is.
