A Message from the Headteacher
As a school, we are committed to doing all that we can to ensure that children ‘enjoy and achieve’ during their time at Tadworth. We want the children to discover new interests and develop their talents by offering a range of activities and experiences. Through our creative curriculum, comprehensive programme of trips and visits and wide selection of clubs, children at Tadworth continue to tell us how much they enjoy school.
We continue to achieve good academic results as a school with the basic skills taught through topics designed to inspire and motivate and bring learning to life. Our commitment to the arts is demonstrated through the children’s participation in year group performances and our annual charity concert. The vibrant displays in the corridors and classrooms not only celebrate the children’s work and offer a reference point to learning but also act as a platform for showcasing talent.
Our commitment to books and a love of reading can clearly be seen by our fantastic library at the heart of our school and the extensive range of books available in and around classrooms.
The Healthy Schools award recognizes the fact that children at Tadworth know the importance of healthy living. When it comes to healthy eating, our catering team, ‘Tadworth Treats’, offers a varied menu of popular and nutritious meals. Children learn the importance of good sportsmanship and of being part of a team with many of our children participating in sports clubs, going on to represent the school in inter-school events where we have enjoyed much success.
We are very fortunate as a school to have spacious grounds and well-resourced classrooms. Our active Parent Teacher Association continues to raise significant sums of money, with the most recent funds raised going towards developments to our playgrounds and outdoor learning.
The children at Tadworth also learn about the importance of giving something back, with every year group supporting a designated charity and children in Year 5 participating weekly in art classes with children at The Children’s Trust.
At Tadworth, you will find a dedicated, hard working staff team ably supported by a committed and experienced governing body.
Choosing the right school for your child is an important decision. Visitors are always welcome, so why not take the time to come and see how much Tadworth has to offer.
