Welcome to Cumnor C of E Primary School





Welcome to the Cumnor Church of England Primary School website. Our school is a happy, calm and exciting place to learn. We are proud of our children’s very responsible, positive and caring attitudes to learning and school life. Our staff strive to ensure that all our children develop a lifelong love of learning so that they can fulfil their dreams and be the best that they can be.

We have around 200 children aged 4-11yrs, split into seven single class year groups, from Foundation through to Year 6. Our catchment area includes the two villages of Cumnor and Farmoor and also some roads in the Cumnor Hill area.

We are a voluntary controlled Church of England school which means that we have very close links with St Michael’s Church in the village and a Christian ethos which underpins our values and much of our teaching.

Our school day starts at 8:50am and finishes at 3.10pm from Monday to Friday. Children can arrive from 8:35am. Wrap around care is available from 7.30 am until 6.00pm.

We have libraries in both key stages and a fully equipped kitchen in KS2 which is used by all classes for the food technology aspects of Design and Technology. We also have a dedicated music room and a variety of spaces for intervention and support work. School meals are cooked onsite, and our large hall is also used for lunches, collective worship, indoor PE, gymnastics and dance. We also hold wonderful concerts and performances which celebrate our children’s achievements throughout the year.

We are fortunate in having excellent outdoor spaces including two large playing fields, adventure areas, gardens, wildlife zones and playgrounds. We also have dedicated enclosed outdoor learning environments for each of our three youngest classes. We back onto farmland and the public footpath network; this and Cumnor village itself, provides many opportunities for taking learning outside the classroom and across the curriculum.
