About Edith Moorhouse Primary School

We are a popular primary school in the Oxfordshire town of Carterton, close to RAF Brize Norton. Visitors to our school often comment on the calm and friendly atmosphere, and our children are happy and enjoy their learning. As a school we have worked really hard over the past few years to build a strong and committed team with the capacity to improve the outcomes for our pupils. In 2017, we became an academy as part of The River Learning Trust. We feel very strongly that our school team, along with the wider family of the River Learning Trust, is what makes our school successful. As part of the River Learning Trust; our collective vision is to be a Trust where pupils and staff thrive in schools which demonstrate: ● all-round education, academic success, lifelong learning for all and strength of character ● sustainable continuous improvement; no school standing still ● all schools being good and outstanding, or improving rapidly ● collaboration that is raising standards, and reducing workload ● where pupils, staff, parents and communities respect and value all we do to support the best possible outcomes and experiences for our children and young people Our Teaching and Learning Policy (created and developed by staff) has a focus of the whole class ‘Teaching to the Top’, with an emphasis on high expectations, knowing our children well, excellent teacher subject knowledge and targeted, effective questioning. The school’s Core Values of ‘well-being’, ‘aspiration’ and ‘resilience’ underpin this policy and form the basis of our school ethos.
