 Newbottle and Charlton CEVA Primary School is a Church of England Voluntary Aided school.  Although our school primarily serves the villages of Charlton and Aynho, we also have many children from the surrounding villages of Evenley, Mixbury, Farthinghoe, Croughton and Fritwell as well as from the town of Brackley.  We are a primary school covering Reception to Year 6 (ages 4-11) and currently have 105 children on roll.  The school is funded through the local authority and as a church school we belong to the Peterborough Diocese.

Standards at our school are some of the best in the country.  We consistently have high levels of achievement and children make excellent progress when here. We have also invested heavily in technology over the past few years and as a result we are well resourced with 15 Macbooks, 8 I-pads; 20 touch screen laptops, digital cameras, video cameras, interactive white-boards etc. 

However, our school is fully committed to developing the whole child and as a result the pupils here are polite, happy, hard-working and enthusiastic about their learning.  They are kind to one another and go to great lengths to praise, encourage and look after one another.  Alongside this, we have a dedicated and committed staff who ensure that all pupils are given the best opportunities to succeed.  They all care very deeply about all the children and know each child very well.  Pupil surveys consistently show that almost 100% of pupils in our school feel there is an adult they could and would go to if they were upset or concerned about something.  Parent surveys indicate that almost 100% of parents feel their child is happy at our school and enjoys coming to school.


We have very strong links with parents and a very supportive parenting community.  We believe that for each child to reach his or her potential, a positive working partnership between home and school is essential.


We do have places available at our school in all year groups so if you are considering schools and would like to visit us, please do not hesitate to contact us.  I would be more than happy to show you around and explain in more detail how our school would further enhance your child’s learning and well-being. I hope you enjoy looking at our Prospectus and I look forward to meeting you and your child/ren in the near future.
