"Schools should be places where every one of its community tastes the confidence which comes with success in some form or another."
All parents want their children to attend a good and successful school. There is a lot of debate about what makes a good school --- I obviously believe that Tyntesfield matches every definition of a successful school. The reason for this confidence is quite simple :
- The school is a happy place
- We demand high standards
- We are committed to a breadth of experience
A school is a community of people. We hope that everyone in our school enjoys being a member and feels a personal commitment to it. Each person has a responsibility to him or herself and others to make life at Tyntesfield a pleasant and rewarding experience. The school enjoys good relationships among parents, children, staff, governors and other friends of the school in the local community.
High standards stem from high expectations. All the staff of the school have the highest expectations of themselves and the children. We take great pride in the achievements of all our children from the "high flyers" who can be stretched to their limits through to the less able who are encouraged and supported in their striving for success. The quality of the work of the children at Tyntesfield speaks for itself, and the continuing success enjoyed by our children on leaving us is proof enough of our high standards.
Our work at Tyntesfield is aimed at educating the whole child. This means we are committed to offering as wide a range of experience as possible and, whilst we place great emphasis on the "basics", we are equally concerned with the artistic, physical and spiritual and moral development of each child. We encourage enjoyment of, and develop talent in, the Arts and sport, and our responsibilities to provide sound moral guidance inform all our work and relationships.
- To provide a happy, stable and caring environment.
- To provide a broad and balanced curriculum within and beyond the National Curriculum.
- To give all children the opportunity to develop their full potential.
- To foster support and co-operation between school and home.
- To encourage the children to achieve self-discipline, and respect other people, property and the environment
- To develop self-confidence, independence and responsibility in preparation for the future.
Tyntesfield is a Local Authority Primary School catering for children between the ages of 4 and 11. The school, which was opened in 1968, is pleasantly situated in its own wooded grounds just off Washway Road. There are nine classrooms in the main building and four classrooms surrounding the main building.
We have our own Nursery Unit catering for 3 year olds on a part time basis.
The main school entrance hall is our Infant Library area. There is also a Junior Library area and an Infant practical area. The main school hall is used for assemblies, P.E. and for lunches. We have our own kitchen on site to provide school lunches.
The playground is to the rear of the building and we have an extensive school field and surrounding wooded areas.
