Welcome to Checkendon C of E (A) Primary School

Checkendon School has all the strengths of a traditional village school. It is situated at the heart of the beautiful village of Checkendon, within the Chiltern Hills of South Oxfordshire. Pupils at our school come from a number of local villages, and from a wide variety of backgrounds, but the family atmosphere of the school ensures that all the children get to know each other well, and develop strong associations across classes as well as within their own year groups.




Vision Statement

 Checkendon Primary School is a dynamic Church of England school in which our Anglican Christian values of respect, courage, integrity, compassion and hope are at the heart of everything we do.  We give every pupil the opportunity to develop their particular capabilities in our stimulating and caring environment where creative teaching and an inspiring curriculum lead to high-quality learning and outstanding achievement.  We work in partnership with parents and the wider community to help every pupil make excellent progress, develop a lifelong love of learning and broaden their sense of citizenship, as they grow in mind, body and spirit.



We value respect and fairness. We aim to develop a culture of inclusion and diversity in which all members of the school community feel proud of their identity and participate fully in school life.

Treat others just as you want to be treated.  Luke 6:31

We value courage. We are a growth mindset school; we seek challenge, we are resolute in the face of adversity.

For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control. 2 Timothy 1:7

We value integrity. We are honest and learn to trust each other.

Whatever is true, whatever is honourable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is pleasing, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.  Philippians 4:8

 We value compassion, care and kindness.

Just as each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of the varied grace of God.  1 Peter 4:10 

We value hope; we encourage everyone to look on the bright side, to be optimistic and thankful for all the good things in our lives.

 Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. Romans 12:12
