Ethos and Values

We are a happy school with a strong Christian ethos.

Tibberton School aims to provide each individual child with an attractive, stimulating, caring learning environment, where all members of its community are valued.
High standards of work and behaviour are insisted upon and achieved.
Recognising its historic foundation, the school will preserve and develop its religious character in accordance with the principles of the Church of England.

Working together, achieving success.

Our Ambition is to make our school a place which enables all our pupils to be confident and successful people, with a love of learning, a sense of curiosity and motivation and a desire to be a positive, active part of the community and church.

We achieve this through our vision to provide an outstanding educational experience with the pupils’ best interests and outcomes at the heart of everything we do.
Together, at Tibberton CE Primary School, positive experiences, creativity and ambition drive each successful learning journey; our teachers and staff share a common sense of vocation, often going the extra mile to meet our children’s needs and deliver the very best teaching we can.

Our School Family aims to –

  • Serve its community by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice. It encourages an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith and promotes Christian values through the experience it offers to its pupils.
  • Help all pupils to develop their full potential within a secure environment which is soundly based on Christian principles and values.
  • Encourage a sense of self-worth in everyone involved in the school community to promote the ideal of mutual respect and care for others.

The school provides outstanding pastoral care for its pupils. The small size of the school ensures that staff know all pupils and families well. Very positive relationships with parents and carers and excellent links with a wide range of partners contribute significantly to improvements in pupils’ achievement and well-being.

Within this broad aim we hope to provide the right environment through intellectual, spiritual and physical experiences for each child to acquire a confident approach to –

  • Be a positive, happy individual.
  • Develop the knowledge, skills, spiritual and moral values in order to become an active and caring citizen, forming a basis to build upon for adult life.
  • Develop skills in language, numeracy, science and the foundation subjects through a rich, creative, balanced curriculum, in line with national guidelines.
  • Develop qualities of independence, self-motivation and self-confidence, to make informed, healthy and safe choices.
  • Develop the ability to work co-operatively with others.
  • Have an enthusiasm for life long learning to develop lively, enquiring minds, knowledge and skills.

We see all learners and their parents and carers as of equal value, whether or not they are disabled, whatever their ethnicity, cultural or national status, and whatever their gender or sexual identity.
