Huge congratulations to the Eynsham Primary School Year 5 cricket team who became county champions this afternoon. Having won their 3 group games, they played Thomas Reade school in the final and managed to win. (More details to follow once Mr. Hazel emerges from the celebrations!)
A big Thank You to all the parents who took time out of their day to take children to the event and offer their support.
I’d also like to take the opportunity to thank the coaches at Eynsham Cricket Club for the excellent job they are doing with the children.
Please see below an advert for a part-time cleaner:
Last Friday, Year 5 entered the West Oxfordshire Kwik Cricket tournament, held at Stonesfield C.C.
On a warm day, Eynsham made light work of the teams in their league, easing into the semi finals with four wins.
They knew, however, that the other league had some stronger teams. The semi final found them drawn against the Batt School. A great batting performance (as well as a stirring speech from the coach: “If you win this, you get another day out of school!”) saw them reach the final, playing Witney C.P. School.
This time it was thanks to a great bowling display from the whole team, as well as some fantastic catches during the final over of the innings, to seal Eynsham’s victory in the tournament, as well as their passage into the Oxfordshire finals on the 12th July. Well done, boys!

Here is an interesting and important article for anyone wishing to gain some insight into the context schools are operating within at the moment. It is long, but worthwhile. For my part, I think the best way of protecting our children is to stick it out, to carry on working as hard as one possibly can to be an effective headteacher and safeguard children in terms of welfare, attainment, progress and choice.
