At Fringford, all learning is underpinned by our School Values. We believe in a holistic approach to education. Each student is encouraged and helped to develop their intellectual, physical, creative, social and spiritual potential to become the very best they can be.
We provide a positive, secure and happy environment in which children are accepted as individuals, encouraged to assume responsibility and given a life-long love of learning. We believe education is a journey we travel for the rest of our lives.
Our School Values are linked to the fundamental British values of democracy, individual liberty, the rule of law and mutual respect and tolerance. These concepts are taught through assemblies, including guest speakers and SCARF lessons.
Our Values embed the skills of how to learn alongside the knowledge-based curriculum to develop our pupils’ character – resilience, confidence and independence.
We have a clear programme of study for PHSE including Relationship and Sex Education.
Our involvement with NOSSP enables the school to access a range of sporting competitions and festivals for all pupils to participate in, including SEND. Through the mentor programme staff are given the training and confidence to deliver high quality PE activities, including Change4Life Clubs.
Our pupils are taught to understand how to keep physically healthy, eat healthily and maintain an active lifestyle, and are given ample opportunities to be active during the school day (Young Leaders, Walk & Talk) and through extra-curricular activities.
Our Y5/6 pupils run a successful Healthy Tuck Shop. We proud of our Healthy School status and our Healthy Smiles accreditation.
In addition to Breakfast Club and Wrap-around Care, the school provides a wide range of extra-curricular activities including after school clubs. These range from sporting to cultural and practical (gardening, mindfulness, drama). These clubs are very well attended.
