Twyford C of E School prides itself on offering an excellent education for children from rising three to 11 years old. As you enter our small village school, the atmosphere is one of a calm, caring, family where everyone knows each other and understands and respects their needs. “Pupils behave exceptionally well” (Ofsted July 2013)
Our children are organised into four classes, Nursery and Reception, Year one and two, Year three and four, Year five and six. Our teachers are skilled at planning for mixed age classes and children work to their ability not necessarily their age.
The classrooms are large and allow for flexibility in teaching methods. We believe it is important for children to learn in the most appropriate way for them and therefore teachers’ planning reflects this. We have a very high staff pupil ratio to ensure all children are supported in their learning. Ofsted described our Early Years as “Outstanding” and noted that throughout the school “Pupils of all abilities achieve well; many are working at levels well beyond those expected for their age“.
The Christian ethos is at the heart of our school, where we promote values that guide the children’s daily lives and which are reflected in their confident, caring and respectful attitudes. The clergy take assemblies alternate Mondays and we visit the church for special events and assemblies and as part of our curriculum.
