Welcome to our school
Please see our school video: https://vimeo.com/476342794
We are a country school in rural Buckinghamshire and what makes our school really special is the friendly, family atmosphere.
Our highly experienced teachers and long-serving staff really care about the pupils. Our school is a fun place for children to learn and they feel safe and cared for.
We are a Values Based Education school. Everyone in the Long Crendon School community strives to live by our values, they are the beating heart of our school.
There are 8 main values that we continually learn about and strive to live by: kindness, courage, unity, honesty, enthusiasm, resilience, respect and equality.
Our school takes great pride in delivering high quality academic teaching and learning. The teachers know their pupils really well and they give children activities which suit our individual ability levels. We enjoy a rich, broad curriculum and whether children favour reading, Maths, sports or sciences, there are opportunities for them to enjoy learning new knowledge and skills every day.
The Pupil Voice plays a really important part of our school. In every year group in every term, children all have the opportunity to take a leadership position. In every class we have School Council Representatives, Eco-Club representatives and Wellbeing ambassadors. This gives our pupils the opportunity to make decisions and they know that their thoughts and feelings matter.
We run a variety of House competitions and enjoy playing inter-house matches. This means that the older and younger children in each house work together in unity to earn the rewards and end of term treats.
We offer lots of extra curricular activities: We are lucky to have extensive grounds. Our school is famous for our outdoor learning programme and we are out in all weathers enjoying Forest School and Outdoor learning lessons. We have a strong sports programme and every child from Year 1 up represents the school and competes in matches against other schools in the Buckingham Partnership.
Children can participate in dance clubs, gymnastics club, tennis clubs. We have specialist music teachers who offer piano, drum, guitar lessons and a variety of orchestral instruments.
Our school has great facilities: We are blessed with huge pitches to play football and tag rugby on, we have lots of playground areas and woodland to play in, we have a swimming pool, computing suite, indoor hall and netball court, large dining room and spacious classrooms. The site was originally a secondary school so we have plenty of room!
We have delicious hot lunches which are made from scratch in our commercial kitchens by our chefs.
Wellbeing and pastoral care is very important in our school and the teachers really care about the children in their care. Children can feel confident that if they are upset, or have any friendship problems, the staff will always take it seriously.

When you visit our school please do not drive onto the school grounds – access is for staff only. Please help to keep our neighbours happy and our surroundings pleasant by not parking on grass verges or across driveways. Thank you for thinking of others by parking safely and considerately in the surrounding streets.
In the event of adverse weather, the decision to close the school is made by the Chair of Governors, in consultation with the Headteacher. Final decisions rest upon the weather conditions first thing in the morning (between about 6am and 7am). We always aim to give as much notice as possible, posting closure information on the Bucks CC website, which in turn triggers local radio announcements. If school buses are not running then schools often make the decision to close, as this is an indication that driving conditions are not safe. Schools may also close if it is not considered possible to make the site safe for users (for example, due to extremely icy conditions). We monitor the weather and driving conditionsand the conditions on the school site and inform parents as early as possible if we are unable to open.
