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 450 pupils. We whole heartedly believe that by enticing children to read and building a real passion in reading for pleasure is essential in laying the strong foundations needed for all areas and aspects of their 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 a zeal for reading and - more broadly - learning.
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 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, Knowledge and Enrichment. We want our children to acquire targeting and transferable skills whilst learning critical and broad schemes of knowledge which allow pupils to fully prepare for the next stages of their learning journey. Finally distinctive enrichment opportunities are woven throughout the school; they explicitly link to learning where cultural awareness and capital is built upon and solidified. 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 our provision and overarching approach. 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.
Please do contact our school office, on the number cited at the bottom of the page, to organise a visit. Or, likewise, enquire regarding any further information or questions you may have.
Mr M. Clark
It is our pleasure to welcome you to our vibrant, dynamic and fun school. Our desire for children is to aspire to be great ensuring our children are equipped with skills, both personal and academic, that will allow them sustained success in the wider world.
We aspire to develop a learning community where children have deep respect for themselves and those around them taking responsibility for their own behaviour, learning attitudes and achievement. Our whole school ethos is based on understanding and modelling the values that are essential to developing a cohesive learning environment. The information presented in this website is designed to give a flavour of what our special School has to offer:
We are so pleased that you are taking an active interest and encourage you to read further and to book a visit to come and see our vision in action!
