Days of learning filled with fun
Hello and welcome to Tetney Primary School. I am pleased to be able to welcome you to our caring school with a dedicated and committed staff, supportive Governors and parents, an active PTA and happy children . The children and staff have worked very hard at the school to make it a happy place to be and my job as head is to ensure that this continues.
Tetney Primary School is a very welcoming school and we strongly encourage visitors to come and take a look and experience the feel of the school for themselves. Set in the beautiful village of Tetney, we strive to make sure the school is at the heart of the community and encourage the children to develop a sense of belonging and responsibility. They are, after all, the future of the village.
My vision for the school is one where everyone involved with the school - children, parents, staff and the community are challenged and encouraged to be the best that they can be; where opportunities are given to all, to develop and achieve their full potential in an environment of mutual respect. I believe the inclusion of all in the day to day life of the school is vital and I would like to encourage parents and the wider community to take an active interest in the life of the school in any way they can.
At Tetney Primary School we believe that children learn through fun and our staff work very hard to achieve this. We believe that learning should be fun, challenging and enjoyable and that every day should be about recognising and celebrating all achievements within a secure and caring environment where children and adults feel valued. To make this happen we provide a range of exciting, quality experiences for all, both in school and through extra curricular activities that are matched to individuals’ abilities. A variety of teaching and learning strategies are used with ongoing assessment to ensure progression. This, in turn, enables us to help our children develop as enquiring, reflective, independent learners with high expectations for themselves and their learning.
Our school is situated in pleasant grounds that feature a garden, two playgrounds and a large field with fixed play equipment. The calm and happy atmosphere was one of the first things I noticed when I came to look round – why not visit us to experience our positive ethos for yourself? I would encourage you to visit us to experience the school "in action" and meet staff and pupils and see for yourself what is on offer at Tetney Primary School.
