On behalf of all staff, governors, parents and pupils, it is a pleasure to welcome you to our school. The school is led and run around our children – their needs are paramount and take the centre stage. It is our responsibility to strive towards giving our children a world class education which they so rightly deserve. We believe that by developing their aspiration, integrity and sense of identity will set them up for their life beyond. In June 2023 we were judged by Ofsted to be a Good school in all areas, with behaviour and attitudes judged as Outstanding. Please note we are part of the School Street Scheme and have temporary restriction on motorised traffic at school drop-off and pick-up times. These are between 8:00am - 9:00am and 2:30pm - 3:30pm.



We believe that having high expectations helps our pupils develop the determination and resilience they need to thrive in the modern world.


We believe that a strong sense of moral purpose, honesty and fairness are essential qualities to build a successful school community.


We believe that our pupils should be happy, confident and have high self-esteem; proud to be part of James Oglethorpe Primary School.
