A first for Cherry Fields! We are very excited to have welcomed Tom from into school today. Some excellent budding musicians had their first go with keyboards and guitars today.

The Year 3 class have had a very creative day with Banbury BID building their own lanterns, for the Christmas Parade around Banbury Town. Wonderful skills demonstrated by our children and our grown up helpers too!


We would like to say a huge thank you to the "Outstanding" team here at Cherry Fields. Our PTA presented the team with some custom made cakes and a card to show their appreciation and continued support.

Our Year 2 class enjoyed their first cooking lesson this week. Attenborough class made their own dough and chopped the toppings for their pizza's. They then took these home with instructions on how to cook for their dinner!


We recently welcome a talented local artist into school to work with our reception class. Delia shared her work, style, media and inspirations as well as running activities with the children allowing them to learn new techniques.


Thank you Banbury Library for sharing these beautiful pictures of our Year 1 and Year 2 class' art work after their trip to the library to celebrate World Book day 2023.

School Uniform

We endeavour to achieve a high standard in all our activities at school and we expect this to be reflected both in the appearance and behaviour of our pupils.

All children must have full school uniform, worn correctly, for daily attendance at school. Uniform will usually be worn on occasions when children are representing the school, including school visits. Uniform guidelines can be found, in full, in the policy at the bottom of this page.

Parents and carers are asked to co-operate fully by providing the uniform and ensuring children wear it correctly to and from school, and at other times as required.

Our suppliers offer the full range of uniform, PE Kit and accessories for pupils which can be purchased directly here:

Link to MyClothing (our uniform supplier)

Please note that currently, MyClothing are discontinuing some age ranges (4-5 yrs, 6-7 yrs, 8-9 yrs and 10-11 yrs). There may be some of these sizes in stock, but one they are gone and showing out of stock there will be no more replacing them. It is advised to purchase the next size up.

Provisions for second-hand uniform

Please do see our 'uniform bin' for dropping off second-hand uniform.  We appreciate all donations.

Nursery uniform expectations

​What uniform do Nursery need?  

​We are slightly more relaxed about the Nursery uniform but would really like them to wear Cherry Field items where possible. The white polo shirt and grey school jumper/cardigan are Nursery uniform but if My Clothing do not have small enough sizes (aged 2) then plain dark grey jumpers/cardigans are acceptable. The most important thing in Nursery is that they are comfortable and confident when coming into school. Black jogging bottoms are a uniform item, but they do not have to be purchased from My Clothing (they just need to be black) and children can be in other items such as leggings or grey school skirts/trousers if necessary. Whatever item they are most confident and independent with toileting in - they do not have to be jogging bottoms.  

​What footwear will Nursery children need?  

​They will need a pair of wellies for outside. They can travel to and from school in whatever they are comfortable in.  

​Do Nursery children need a book bag?  

​No, they don't. ​
