About Edith Moorhouse Primary School

Our School

Welcome to Edith Moorhouse Primary School

We are a popular primary school in the Oxfordshire town of Carterton. We currently have just about 300 pupils, with about one third of those pupils coming from Service Families with one or more parent serving at RAF Brize Norton.

In April 2017 we converted to academy status as part of the River Learning Trust.

We are proud of our caring and nurturing approach to education and our school ethos is based on our Core Values. Visitors to our school comment that there is a calm and industrious atmosphere and that the children are polite and respectful. All pupils, staff, parents, governors and members of our local community feel listened to and contribute to our strong school community.

As a school, we continually strive towards reaching our goals and try to be the very best we can. We aim for high standards in all that we do and we adhere to the three River Learning Trust principles:

· Commitment to Excellence​: striving for the best educational experience

· Everyone Learning​: creating and taking opportunities that enhance lives

· Respectful Relationships​: acting with care, integrity, and fairness in all we do

Our school motto, chosen by the pupils, is:

Reach for the Stars

This represents the school’s desire to always demonstrate aspiration and resilience.

We always warmly welcome visitors: please contact the office if you would like to come and meet us.
