My name is Ed Carlyle and I am delighted to be the Executive Headteacher of Titchmarsh Church of England Primary School. I warmly welcome you to our school website, which I hope will give you just a flavour of some of the amazing things we do at this wonderful school.

Building Friendships....Inspiring Confidence.…Creating Futures….Nurturing Faith - this is our motto and very much our vision for our school - we are determined to ensure that our pupils get the very best we can give them and that they leave us with a wide and deep range of skills and achievements that will set them up for successful lifelong learning. 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.

Some of the comments from our Parents' Survey sum up what it is like to be part of Titchmarsh Primary School:

‘The ‘family feel’ of the school, where everyone knows each other and everyone is friendly’

‘It’s a homely environment and it welcomes you and it’s a great start for our children to learn good values’

‘It feels like an extension of the family’

This is a great school. I think so, the parents think so and, most importantly, the children agree. The best way to find out for yourself to come and visit us and see us in action. On behalf of the children and staff, I would like to personally invite you to come and visit us - please contact the School to make an appointment or keep an eye out for the forthcoming events. Our Titchmarsh School Calendar is available on this site and has all of the key events for the rest of the year so you don't have to miss out!

In the meantime, I am sure that our website will give you a wonderful glimpse into life at Titchmarsh Church of England Primary School.

Mr Ed Carlyle
Executive Headteacher

Titchmarsh Open Month 2020

This Week at Titchmarsh...

Hello everyone,

Thank you for looking on our website and for supporting our school. We've now been back nearly a whole term and it's lovely to see everyone back and settled so well.

We're also really excited to tell you all about our Big Write for Black History Month. This year, we chose 'Bold Black Women' as our theme and each class chose an inspirational woman to study. Owlets chose Rosa Parks, Year 1 learned about Mary Seacole, Year 2 found out about Ruby Bridges, Year 3 chose Katherine Johnson, Year 4 learned all about Tessa Sanderson and Years 5 and 6 were inspired by the life and works of Maya Angelou. We all wrote factfiles and reports then made a video celebrating the lives of our chosen person and the whole school voted on who they thought had made the greatest impact and contribution. Having learned about all these amazing women and their contributions, it was a very close contest and the vote was won by the Owlets' presentation on the life and achievements of Rosa Parks. Well done to everyone for working so hard on the Big Write and to Mrs Campbell for organising it!

New for this week: Hot meals are now available for booking from the Kingswood website. And there's still time for you to enter our Science Photography Competition!

Pick-up times have now changed. KS2 can be collected from the playground at 2.55pm, KS1 pupils at 3.05pm and Owlets at 3.15pm. Please use the one-way system as before. Morning times remain as they are. 

Please note that, due to the operation of our separate Key Stage bubbles, places at both Breakfast Club and Afterschool Club are limited. We can, therefore, only accept pupils who have pre-booked places. Please ensure that you have sent a completed booking form to Mrs Skerritt, otherwise we will unfortunately not be able to admit your child to Wraparound Care. Thank you for your understanding.

Covid-19 Planning at Titchmarsh Primary School

Thank you for your continued support in getting all pupils back into school safely over the past half-term. All of us are committed to providing the best education possible for your child, while securing the health and safety of our whole school community. Thank you for continuing to follow public health guidelines and encouraging your children to do the same.

You are already aware of the steps we have put in place to ensure the safe return of all pupils to school. We know that you will be keen to understand the impact that we have had in our first weeks of the term, and what our plans are to ensure all pupils catch up with any missed learning, and what will happen if a pupil or pupil is asked to stay at home over the coming months.

Remote Learning at Titchmarsh Church of England Primary School

In the event of any pupils missing more time from school as a result of self-isolation, we are committed to providing continuous provision to mitigate any more lost learning time affecting progress. Therefore, the school has the following in place to provide continuity of learning:

In the event of a pupil self-isolating, the class teacher will provide work through email and, for KS2 pupils, Office 365 and respond to any work completed by the pupil via parent email and pupil accounts. Paper copies can be provided on request. Learning will consist of the assignments being set in class, particularly White Rose, Book Talk and English Schemes and will be planned and assessed and feedback to the pupil and next steps adjusted as required to adjust pace and level of challenge.

In the event of our KS2 bubble closing, the class teacher will provide work through the school website and Office 365. Videos and face to face meetings will be calendared using Microsoft Teams and interactive work will be provided on the school website and through Microsoft Forms. Staff will respond to any work completed by email during school hours and class and 1-1 meetings will also be timetabled. All KS2 pupils have been set up with an Office 365 account which will allow them to access internal emails, Microsoft Forms for interactive work and Microsoft Teams for virtual lessons, reading and support.

In the event of our Early Years and KS1 bubble closing, KS1 work will be organised using the school website and staff will be available via Microsoft Teams for regular 1-1 sessions. Early Years work will be found on the school website and pupil responses can be uploaded via Tapestry. Staff will also upload instruction videos and phonics lessons to the website for children to follow.

In the event of a school closure, the school will send home a detailed letter with information regarding accessing the systems, username and password information and will use the homepage of the school website and Parent Mail to communicate the latest advice and situation reports with you.

Thank you for your continued support of Titchmarsh Church of England Primary School.

Please remember to follow both the school’s and public health guidance to keep everyone learning safely.

 Exciting Science News!

The primary schools within the Prince William School catchment area have made a successful bid to form a partnership with the Ogden Trust. Through this long-term project, the OGDEN Trust will provide funding and teacher CPD to support the teaching of physical sciences in our partner schools over the next 5 years.

The partnership schools are:

  • Oundle Church of England Primary School (HUB SCHOOL)
  • Titchmarsh Church of England Primary School
  • Warmington School
  • Glapthorn Church of England Primary School
  • Polebrook Church of England Primary School
  • Nassington Primary School
  • Kings Cliffe Endowed Primary School
  • Thrapston Primary School
  • Trinity County Church of England Primary School, Aldwincle
  • Laxton Junior School

Oundle Church of England Primary School will be the hub school for the partnership and will host our Outreach laboratory where some of the planned events will take place. The partnership will allow us to strengthen links between our schools, share best practice and develop and share resources. It will also allow us to plan and promote a programme of events to engage our children and their families including a Saturday morning Science Club, a star gazing event, family science quiz nights and a range of science projects.

 The aims of the OGDEN Trust partnership are to:

  • raise the profile of science in the primary curriculum, with the emphasis on physical processes
  • enhance teachers’ confidence in the planning, delivery and assessment of primary science (physical processes)
  • support science subject leaders in creating a sustainable network.

Steve Adams (Outreach Scientist, Oundle School) will be the partnership coordinator and our new Ogden Trust Partnership will also benefit from close links with, and opportunities provided by, the OPEN Learning Partnership.

Stay Safe, Everyone!

We are pleased to support Northamptonshire Police again in spreading Halloween and Bonfire Night safety messages this year.

A special Halloween and Bonfire Night edition of the Safety Matters newsletter produced by Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue Service, supported by the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner is available in our Newsletters section. It contains some important safety messages on topics ranging from fireworks to considerations around candle use.

This year, given covid-19 restrictions, NFRS is supporting the Police in encouraging young people not to trick or treat, but suggesting alternative fun activities instead. The newsletter gives details of a pumpkin trail in which families may choose to participate (more details also on the police and fire websites).

We appreciate your support and hope everyone has a happy and safe Halloween and Bonfire Night

The information guidance can be found under 'This Term's Newsletters' which is under our 'News and Dates' tab.

Ofsted Statement

"Pupils speak with excitement about what it means to be a pupil at Titchmarsh.  The curriculum ensures that they encounter a wide range of interesting activities to broaden their horizons.  The school's faith-based ethos complements the very effective work the school does to promote British values.  Still more importantly, pupils' attitudes towards one another, and their generosity in helping others less fortunate than themselves, demonstrate their commitment to the school's values."
