This Week at Titchmarsh...

Hello everyone,

Thank you for looking on our website and for supporting our school. 

NEW FOR THIS WEEK: Welcome to the new school year! We hope you had a lovely summer and we are delighted to welcome everyone to Titchmarsh, whether it's your first visit to us or you've been with us for years. Many of the events for the Autumn Term are now on the calendar and look out for the updates on our long-term plans on the Curriculum page. All of our amazing staff have been working hard to make sure that we are all set for a wonderful year and we have had a lot of work done. Our new Owlets outdoor area is looking great and the Blue and Grey Rooms have been completely transformed - we can't wait to show you! We look forward to sharing the year ahead with you.

We've added a 'Challenge Guide' to our newsletter section to help you tackle online safety challenges at home!



Have you heard about an online character called Huggy Wuggy from a game and TV show called Poppy Playtime? The animated character goes by the friendly name of Huggy Wuggy, leading parents and children to believe the videos are aimed at youngsters and contain no inappropriate material. However, the blue bear-like creature with sharp teeth chases and threatens other characters in nightmarish scenarios, leaving many children upset and frightened.  The character is from the cast of Poppy Playtime which is described as a ‘survival horror, logical puzzle video game’. Huggy Wuggy is the villain within the game.

The game involves staying alive in a horror puzzle adventure. This game is not suitable for primary aged children as it contains some frightening and disturbing content that is very upsetting to view. The Poppy Playtime game is available on the App Store and Android store and has a PEGI 12 rating, meaning it is only suitable for people over 12. To put this into context Minecraft has a rating of PEGI 10 meaning it is only suitable for people over 10.  Toys representing the characters from Poppy Playtime are sold on Amazon. The Huggy Wuggy character has also been recreated on Roblox, a virtual community where users can create their own 3D worlds with their own game players.

Please see our newsletter section for a range of factsheets and advice regarding online safety for your children.

Not sure what to read next with your child? Check out the Recommended Reads for each class! Lots of ideas to excite and inspire young readers and to get a ticket for the Reading Raffle!

You can find the information under 'Our Classes' and the lists are in each class section. Enjoy!!


We are delighted to be able to share with you that, following our Ofsted Inspection in April, Titchmarsh Cof E Primary School continues to be a good school!

The full report can be found on the Ofsted website but we'd like to share a few of the report's comments:

From a parent - 'I couldn't wish for a better school for my children. They have flourished here.'

From the inspectors - 'This inclusive school has a warm and friendly atmosphere...and it has a family feel to it.' 'Staff have a good subject knowledge' (Maths) and 'the teaching of phonics and early reading is a strength.' 'The school values of hope, friendship, love, honesty and respect shine through.'

Well done to the pupils and staff for such an excellent report and thank you to everyone for their continuing support for the school. Well done, everyone!

Children's Mental Health Week - see below for more details about all the activities we are running during the week with the children! There will also be visits to the park and special events every day for everyone to enjoy!

Thank you to Mrs Moulam and the staff for all their support!!

Our Prayer for Black History Month

Compassionate God

who sent Jesus Christ

to deliver us from all manner of injustices and inequalities,

create in us new hearts and enlarged visions,

to see the image of God in every person

irrespective of background, race and ethnicity.

May we be generous in our love of others

as we work towards ending misunderstanding, racism and injustice; creating

communities of human flourishing,

through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,

who is alive and reigns with you,

in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever.



We have been awarded Music Mark and we are delighted!! Well done, everyone, for all your hard work in helping us achieve this!! We look forward to when we can have sharing assemblies to show off our musical skills!! Thank you to everyone for their work in developing Music in the school.


Mental Health Day was Sunday October 10th!

If you missed it, here are some links you might find useful:  The Optimistic October Calendar - this is packed with hints and tips to help you make the most of this month:  

If you fancy sharing a 2 minute video clip about resilience with your children or young people, check this out - 

  I like what Beano says  ‘Everyone sees my mischief, no one sees my emotions.’ Does that sound familiar?  We may talk about ‘children’s behaviour’ and that it isn’t acceptable – maybe it feels a bit tricky working with a child’s emotions, this video might help with those conversations.

Another recommended site with resources about Mental Health is Free practical mental health resources | Charlie Waller Trust.

We hope you find these resources useful! Please come and talk to your child's class teacher if you have any questions or concerns!

NEW! Local Offer 2021 - please see 'Useful Forms and Files' for the latest information for families with pupils with special educational needs and disabilities.
