Welcome from the Head of School

Welcome to Cherry Fields Primary School!BWCF SF 012

Our brand new, one form entry school opened in September 2020 in Banbury; located on the Belway housing developments of Hanwell View and Cherry Fields, off Southam Road.  We opened our doors to reception and nursery children for the first time in September 2020 and, as of September 2022, have classes up to Year 2. Each year the school will increase its age range, adding an additional year group until it is an all-through primary school in 2026. 

We are proud of our new school and its amazing facilities, inside and outside the classroom, that will allow us to deliver our exciting and enriching curriculum. As part of the GLF Academy Trust, we are wholly committed to ensuring the highest standard of education and provision for our children.  

Our aim is for our children is to dream, believe and achieve and our embedded STEAM curriculum has been specifically written and deliberately designed for children living in Oxfordshire.  We follow The National Curriculum and deliver it through a Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics lens. The STEAM curriculum is a vehicle to encourage children to aspire to work in the high technology industries within Oxfordshire and to develop a love of learning. We believe in offering a curriculum that ensures all children benefit and learn, whatever their individual starting point.  

Wellbeing and nurture of children is at the heart of all school decisions. Our explicitly taught high expectations are modelled by staff and are underpinned by our school values. These values are: respect, appreciation, compassion, determination, grit, resilience, excellence, creativity, curiosity, responsibility, leadership and teamwork. We have a strong ethos and culture around our 12 school values which means that we reward and draw attention to the value rather than the outcome.   We strive to achieve excellence whilst internalising respect, kindness and determination therefore growing and developing well-rounded, polite, confident, articulate and empowered children – the next generation is off to a very good start! 

Cherry Fields Primary is part of the GLF Schools Multi Academy Trust, alongside our cluster of schools: Longford Park Primary (opened in September 2017, graded outstanding September 2021), Aureus Primary School (opened in September 2018, graded outstanding October 2022), William Morris Primary School (joined GLF in 2015, graded outstanding in September 2018) and Hardwick Primary School (joined GLF in 2019). As part of this cluster of schools, we benefit from sharing outstanding resources and support. 

I hope you enjoy your visit to our website and that you will re-visit it regularly to keep up to date with our latest news.
