Welcome to John Blandy Primary School! We are an average sized, village Primary School mainly serving the villages of Southmoor and Kingston Bagpuize. We have 189 happy, enthusiastic and imaginative children, who thrive in our caring and supportive environment. We create life long learners through our carefully planned skills based curriculum, developing links across subjects and embedding knowledge through rich experiences.
We have strong links to our local community, and in November 2013 we joined the Faringdon Academy of Schools, forming a Multi- Academy Trust consisting of 7 primary schools and Faringdon Community College.
As our local community grows our school is growing too! We are expanding to 1.5fte from September 2017. We will begin this expansion in the Reception year in September, and grow steadily over the coming years. In the Spring term of 2017 building work will start on our new two storey block, consisting of 6 new classrooms and work zones. This is a very exciting time for our school!
Ofsted visited us at the end of 2016 and graded us as a GOOD school. Click on this link to read the full report.
Visits are warmly welcomed, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Rothwell in the office for more information or to make an appointment.
