About Edith Moorhouse Primary School

We are a popular primary school in the Oxfordshire town of Carterton. We currently
have around 370 pupils on roll, with about one third of pupils coming from Service
Families serving at RAF Brize Norton.
The school is named after Miss Edith Moorhouse OBE, a Senior Adviser for primary
schools in Oxfordshire from 1946 to 1968. Her support to the innovations of another
local (George Baines) helped drive radical changes to primary education in the 1950s
and 1960s.
In April 2017 we converted to academy status as part of the River Learning Trust.
As a school, we continually strive toward reaching our goals and try to be the very
best we can. We have high standards in all that we do and we adhere to the three
River Learning Trust principles:

Commitment to Excellence​: striving for the best educational experience
Everyone Learning​: creating and taking opportunities that enhance lives
Respectful Relationships​: acting with care, integrity, and fairness in all we do

Our school vision, chosen by the pupils, is: Reach for the Stars

This represents the school’s desire to always demonstrate aspiration and resilience.
