Welcome to our school
At Long Crendon we subscribe to an educational philosophy based upon valuing self, others and our environment. Values education is at the centre of our school vision. Long Crendon School is a place where children can grow as individuals, as learners and as caring and productive members of society.
We aim to offer all of our children an outstanding, inspirational, educational experience. Learning outside the classroom is a key aspect of our curriculum, giving children opportunities to identify and manage risk effectively. Promoting Growth Mindset, empowers our children to always believe that they can improve.

Adverse weather procedures
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.
Our core values, underpinning all aspects of the school experience, are: resilience, determination, honesty, courage, mutual respect, trust, co-operation and friendship. We also promote democracy, the rule of law, tolerance and individual liberty.
