Welcome to Tymberwood Academy. We are thrilled that you have taken an interest in our school. We hope this initial welcome and, the rest of the site, gives you the information you seek and a flavour for our school.
We are a thriving two form entry school (with a Nursery) which serves approximately 450 pupils. We whole heartedly believe that by enticing children to read and building a real passion towards reading for pleasure is essential in laying the strong foundations needed for all areas and aspects of learning.
Because of this, all classes are named after our favourite children’s authors. By doing this, it allows the team to re-visit key genres and build a consistent dialogue around reading for pleasure.
As an SRP (Specialist Resource Provision) and serving a higher than average number of pupils with SEND, the staff are unrelenting in their drive to give the children the highest quality provision. Their thinking and daily action is fully child-centred. They see no barrier in what children can achieve no matter what their starting point. Moreover, the everyday ethos and climate at Tymberwood is something in which we are immensely proud. The consistent care and purposeful nurture provided is at the heart of what we do.
We have a broad, balanced and community relevant curriculum. The three main pillars in which we build around are: Skills and Knowledge, Enriching Opportunities and Behaviours for Life. We want our children to acquire targeting and transferable skills whilst learning critical and broad banks of knowledge which allow pupils to fully prepare for the next stages of their learning journey. Distinctive enrichment opportunities are woven throughout the school; they explicitly link to learning where cultural awareness and capital is built upon and solidified. Preparing pupils for the next stage of their learning, and for a place in modern Britain, is about developing the whole child. We must prepare them with the character, virtues and values to withstand the winds of change and positively impact on society. If you would like to find out more about our curriculum, please use the corresponding curriculum tab on the website.
At Tymberwood, we are absolutely committed to continuous improvement where we are always striving to sharpen the quality of the children’s learning. If you are a prospective parent/ carer, do know that, at Tymberwood your child will be deeply cared for, challenged in their learning and have consistent opportunities to ignite a passionate for learning.
