'Live to learn and learn to live in fulness of life'. 

We are a centre of HOPE

    The full curriculum. 

Everyone at Tudor School is recognised as a gift from God and someone for whom there is a unique and wonderful purpose.

To that aim, we strive to achieve the highest possible standards in all areas of life to allow us to find this and to do the very best we can. 

We have key learning characters which we encourage in all the children here:

Try hard - Focus, Persistence

Understanding - Empathy, Collaboration

Discover - Curiosity, Originality

Openess - Flexibility of mind, Good Judgement

Reach out - Initiative, Drive 

The children will be focussing on one of these learning characters each half term. 

The learning character of focus for this half term is:

Try Hard - Persistence and Focus

British Values

The Government set out this definition of British values in the 2011 Prevent Strategy, and these values were reiterated in 2014.  “to create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.”

This was not something new at Tudor Church of England Primary School. British values are promoted in so much of what we do, not least during our school assemblies, Religious Education and Personal, Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning. We have thought carefully about how British Values and Christian values are entwined. 

The term ‘British values’ might be slightly misleading in that these values are integral to so many countries throughout the world – they differ in no way from the values of most western European countries, for example.

Being part of Britain

As a school, we value and celebrate the diverse heritages of everybody at Tudor. Alongside this, we value and celebrate being part of Britain. In general terms, this means that we celebrate traditions, such as customs in the course of the year; for example, our Autumn celebration about the harvest & bonfire night, Easter egg hunting and our Summer Farmers Market and of course our Christmas celebrations! We also value and celebrate national, charity and sporting events such as Children In Need, Red Nose Day and the WW1 Centenary. The children take great pleasure in helping our local food bank with food donations and contributing to the annual shoe box appeal as well as where possible raising money for a wide range of charities. 

Further, children learn about being part of Britain from different specific perspectives. We ensure that the children have a better understanding of what Britain is, learning more about:

  • its capital cities and counties, its rivers and mountains
  • the local area, specifically the farming background of the village and the river
  • how ‘Great Britain’ differs from ‘England’ and ‘the United Kingdom’ where Britain is in relation to the rest of Europe and other countries in the world
  • British history, Monarchs, rulers and significant events that defined society
