Dear Parents, Carers, Future Parents and members of the community,
I believe I have one of the best jobs in the world! My vision for your children is to inspire, challenge, motivate and empower each and every one of them, to be the very best that they can be.
At Tackley, we aim to deliver high quality teaching that will make a significant difference to the children in our care. Your children come to school with amazing gifts and a unique set of talents. Together, we will strive to ensure that your children discover and build on their potential and in doing so acquire the skills to become lifelong learners.
We believe that the measure of a well-educated child is not only academic success. We feel strongly that a child that has been well educated should demonstrate a range of skills, qualities and attitudes which will enable them to be successful in our ever changing world.
Within the context of Christian belief and practice, our school has developed a set of core values which underpin the work we do. These values will have a huge impact as your child develops. They help to deepen your child’s positive values and in doing so, help them consider the implications of their choices in relation to themselves, the communities from which they are part and the wider world.
All the staff and governors have high expectations for your children. We are a dedicated, hardworking team of people who are proud of our school and the work we do.
We would like to take this opportunity to encourage you to get involved in the life of the school. If you have a hidden talent you would like to share, play a sport or a musical instrument or would enjoy listening to our children read, please speak to a member of staff who will be only too happy to invite you along!
I look forward to a warm and lasting partnership, as we work together to ensure your children are well prepared for the next step in their learning journey, and leave with happy memories of Tackley School.
I look forward to meeting you soon.
Mrs J. Settle
