Headteacher – Welcome

Dear Parents,

Welcome to our school website.

We hope that it gives you an insight into the wide range of opportunities that are available to the children here at Christopher Rawlins Church of England Primary School.

Christian values underpin the life of our school. Through Jesus' lessons of Compassion, Peace and Service we work with children at our core. Their needs are at the forefront of all our plans and at the heart of our school's ethos.

We believe that children achieve their full potential when they are content and happy at school. We therefore offer our children a wide range of activities both in and out of school in order to prepare them for lifelong learning. We believe that all children are entitled to a broad and balanced curriculum in an environment that gives them the confidence to succeed and stimulates their interest and enjoyment in learning.

The school community are committed to giving your child the best possible start to their school life; the care, guidance and support offered is exceptional, with every child's individual needs being met. We strive to develop a strong working relationship with you, as parents, helping to support your child's development and learning; communication is paramount in that endeavour.

As a Church of England school we are committed to our strong Christian ethos and are proud of the close links that we have with St Mary’s Church, Adderbury and our local community.

By the end of your child’s time at Christopher Rawlins School we hope to have helped them understand how to live out Jesus' message to, 'Love one another as I have loved you'; to have gained the highest academic achievements possible, to be respectful of others and have enjoyed a wealth of learning opportunities that will stay with them for the rest of their school loves and beyond.

I hope that you find our website informative and, should you have queries or would like to visit the school, please feel free to contact the school office to make an appointment; I would be delighted to show you around and answer any questions you may have.

Phil Goldsworthy, Headteacher

Vist our Governors pages

School Governors play a really important role and we are very lucky to have such a committed group of governors who lead and support the work of Christopher Rawlins Primary School. The work of the Governing Body is very varied and includes approving the whole school budget, approving school policies, setting the strategic direction of the school and helping to make sure we put our vision into action. Governors meet at least twice a term (this is the Full Board meeting) and we also have several committees who usually meet once a term and then report to the Full Board.

The committees are: Curriculum and Standards; Resources; Disciplinary; Pay; Health and Safety. All committees have their own chair and work within the Terms of Reference as established by the Full Board. Governing bodies are made up of different types of governors including parent governors, local authority, staff and co-opted.

The main fund-raising events of the year are our Summer and Christmas Fairs, which are always extremely successful and well supported. Funds raised are used to support projects throughout the school.

Other events organised by the PTFA include discos which are very popular with the children.
