Headteacher's Introduction and Welcome
Welcome you to our website - it will give you a taste of what makes TCMS such a good school, where children are taught by excellent teachers, have access to a broad and balanced curriculum, and are challenged to reach their full potential. Our aim is to be an outstanding school, with our team ensuring that every pupil is motivated and that we offer the leadership and opportunity that will allow individuals to achieve their dreams. Giving all our pupils the very best tools to progress in life is what we do.
We have an outstanding pastoral team, who ensure pupils are safe at school, show respect to everyone and everything around them and develop the self-esteem and resilience necessary in their future lives and careers. Our office team are second to none and provide a wonderful first contact for parents. They will endeavour to answer all your questions, and keep you updated of your child’s progress through our Schoolcomms system – both for when Teacher Commendations are awarded, or for when a quiet word is needed about conduct at school. We have dedicated Learning Support Staff who are highly qualified to give your child the very best support when necessary. Our caretaking staff work tirelessly ensuring a safe, inspiring and engaging environment in school. Our lunchtime staff keep pupils safe, and are a very valuable ‘ear’ if pupils have concerns about anything. We have our own chef at school who has brought creativity to our lunchtime menus - available to view on our school website - and has guided her team effortlessly through accreditation with the Soil Association. We source fresh, organic produce locally where possible so I urge you to give our new menus a go.
Parental Engagement is essential for your child’s progress. We have very high expectations of all pupils; that they will be well prepared and equipped every day, come to school with an ‘I can’ attitude, and follow our R.E.S.P.E.C.T. rules. With that in mind, we actively encourage parents to be involved in the day-to-day and longer term direction of school by volunteering as a Governor. If any parents are interested in joining a Parent Group to contribute to school and community life, but cannot commit to Governorship, please do get in contact.
I have painted a very honest picture of TCMS, but you decide. Come to our intake evenings, where you and your child can have a tour of school; meet their future teachers, see what they will be learning, speak to pupils, see for yourself that our school environment is a happy and safe place to learn. When pupils are happy and safe, the learning will happen in abundance. If you can’t make any of our intake evenings, give me a ring anytime on the office number and I will be delighted and proud to show you around. I look forward to meeting you.
Mr Benjamin Hulbert
