Welcome to Tardebigge Church of England (Aided) First School.
Recognising its historic foundation as a Church of England Aided school in the Diocese of Worcestershire, all at Tardebigge seek to preserve and develop its Christian character where everyone is encouraged to value each other and the very special world in which we live.
Our vision for Tardebigge is that it is an efficient and effective learning community with high expectations of its staff and children. We want our school to provide a high quality learning environment, which is stimulating and supportive of all pupils and adults.
We want each child to feel happy and valued within a caring Christian community, to achieve his/her full potential and to be a responsible, confident member of society.
We strive for excellence and continuous improvement.
What we value: “Every Child Matters.”
All our children have different abilities, some can read well, some can run fast, and there are those that just make your day. Here at Tardebigge, in our endeavour to achieve high standards, we try to recognise each one.
· believe that all children should have the opportunity to enjoy their learning and experience success, within a safe and nurturing environment.
· promote a broad, balanced and differentiated curriculum valuing children’s interests and motivation.
· consider the building of partnerships with parents and the local community to be vital in promoting children’s education.
· value continuing, supportive professional development, for all those engaged in the work of the school, to raise expectations and standards of attainment.
· believe it is important to create an environment where everyone is valued, considers the needs of others; and develops positive attitudes and skills (including knowing right from wrong).
Parents, Our Partners
The part which parents play in the education of their children is a vital one. From parents, children learn attitudes towards school, teachers and schoolwork and the teachers learn much about the children. You can help your child enormously at home through hearing reading, helping with homework (as appropriate), conversation and playing games, etc.
To keep you informed about what your child is doing and progress made, the school undertakes the following:
- A termly curriculum newsletter, which will be sent home.
- Termly Parents' Evenings.
- Curriculum workshops.
- Two reports will be sent home: an interim report in the spring term, and a full report in the summer term.
- Parents will be invited to attend Class Assemblies.
- Staff will be available for consultation at a mutually convenient time.
- Parents are invited to help in the classroom.
The Commitment to the school shown by parents is greatly appreciated by staff and children
