As a Church School, we have chosen the Parable of the Good Shepherd (Luke:15) as our core value - everyone in our community matters and we all work together to ensure that each and every child with us gets the most from their time with us. We know all of our children as individuals and we go out of our way to make sure they all flourish and succeed.

Our School Parable

Then Jesus told them this parable: “Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Doesn’t he leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it? And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbours together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.’ 

Luke: 15

Our Church School Vision

'Building friendships, inspiring confidence, creating futures, nurturing faith’ - ensures every pupil’s future, faith and development is paramount; we have chosen ‘The Good Shepherd’ as our parable as we celebrate the steps we take to bring everyone into our fold, enabling them to flourish and succeed.

Our Church School Values

Each week we have collective worship linked to one of our Church School Values: Hope, Friendship, Honesty, Love and Respect. See our Collective Worship themes for more details!

Our Christian Ethos

Our Church School values live through our work in school but also through our links with the wider community. Our school is right next door to the Church of St Mary the Virgin in Titchmarsh and we have a monthly Church Collective Worship in the church itself led by the Reverend Cathy and Reverend Annabel - you can see the dates on our calendar and we hope you can join us. 

We are also part of the Diocese of Peterborough (https://www.peterborough-diocese.org.uk/) and join them for training, for local services and support.  

Our last SIAMS inspection was in 2017 and the report can be found on this page.

Our Church Council

Our Church Council was set up in November.  Titchmarsh Primary is a Church of England School and we want to help our school and wider community to understand and enjoy worshipping God.  The members are elected by their classmates.  We are very pleased to welcome two representatives from each class from Reception to Year 6. Mrs. Moulam, our R.E lead in school, and Ms Foote ,our RE Link Governor and Foundation Governor are also members and support us with Church Council.    

There is a Church Council board close to the office so please check for the latest agenda and minutes.   

There were lots of things the Church Council were unable to do last year due to Covid, so this year we are going to be busy making a difference to our school and wider community and we can’t wait!

RE at Titchmarsh

Religious Education helps us to understand our Christian values, and the values of other religions, in more detail and helps us to apply our understanding in a range of situations and topics. By reflecting and thinking about our values, world events and Bible stories, we are able to use these values as part of our everyday lives, enriching our own experiences and the lives of others we meet, just as it says in our school prayer. By linking our Collective Worship to different values and events, we are able to understand how we should feel, act and support others. 

Our RE curriculum can be found on this page and shows the range of topics and religions we cover, reinforcing our values each day and through our reflection, prayers and work.

Our Spiritual Development

We pray each day for food and families and reflect on how fortunate we are to have food readily available to us and we have time each day, through our Collective Worship, to think and reflect on the messages in our worship and on our own deeds and actions. There are areas in the school for individual reflection in our prayer spaces - one in the Owlets' classroom, one outside the Hall and one in the KS2 area where we can sit and think quietly about our thoughts and our actions. Everyone is invited each day to reflect and, through our school vision, there are clear opportunities for us to be focus on our spiritual development.

At present, we are focusing on the Respect Agenda, understanding the history, values, successes and achievements of different cultures, through Reading, Topic, Music and Collective Worship and we use The Big Write and our PSHE and SRE lessons to understand the importance of positive, healthy relationships and using our Christian values as a way of helping everyone to live their lives in the best way possible.

We regularly raise money for charities such as Macmillan and Children In Need but we also recognise the importance of doing, and not just giving - we brought in food for our Harvest that was donated to the Thrapston Food Bank so that others would benefit and we wore Odd Socks for Anti-Bullying Day to think about actions, kindness and how we can make sure we treat people in the best way we possibly can.

We also created a kindness tree created by everyone in school!
