Chalgrove Community Primary School

Working Together for Excellence

About Us

About us

Set in beautiful countryside in rural Oxfordshire, Chalgrove Community Primary School prides itself on being at the heart of our village.


The school was originally opened in 1877 and has naturally evolved around the growing needs of the community. There are three main buildings, including a purpose-built Foundation Unit.


There is a large sports hall offering excellent facilities during the school day and also for after school clubs, and a large playing field for outdoor sports and activities.


We have established a nature reserve called 'Frogmore' on an area of land adjacent to the playing field where the children (and often parents) are working on a variety of environmental projects to monitor and observe the local wildlife.


During their time at Chalgrove children experience a learning environment where they are able to develop as individuals, gaining confidence and independence to become flexible and creative learners.


The school was graded 'Good' in all areas at the last Ofsted inspection in July 2012. Staff and parents continue to work closely together providing a strong leadership team and support network for a community school we are all proud of. The Ofsted is available to look at via the direct link, you may also like to view the DfE School Performance Tables on the link below.
