The school is named after William Fletcher who was the school’s benefactor. He was brought up in the village and went on to become Mayor of Oxford and an Alderman. He was an inspirational man who had a strong sense of community and gave a sum of money for the first school in the village to be established. Each year on Founder’s day we remember William Fletcher and his generosity in establishing our school.
At William Fletcher Primary School we enable our children to be the best they can be. We do this by providing a safe and secure environment where children enjoy coming to school. We provide excellent teaching and learning opportunities for all our children and work hard to establish good links with parents and carers.
Our teachers have excellent subject knowledge alongside an understanding of how children learn. They celebrate success as well as being able to identify what each child needs to learn next and ensuring that they do so. Our teachers themselves have an enthusiasm and passion for learning. They provide a varied and inspiring curriculum that stimulates children’s intellectual curiosity and appetite for learning. It also develops those skills children need to become independent lifelong learners.
Our school is at the centre of the community, we value highly the support of the village community and think it is important that not only do our children achieve academically but they also become good members of their local and wider communities. We strive to develop a good model of active community participation through a range of initiatives.
