'Bringing out the best in everyone.' 'Encourage one another and build each other up' 1 Thessalonians 5:11



Staff, parents, governors and pupils have all contributed to a 'Charter for Learning' which was generated as the school introduced the new primary curriculum from September 2014. This shared vision for learning describes the key elements of a 'great curriculum' and the qualities of 'Tilston learners' as described by the school community. The school's curriculum overviews can be downloaded at the bottom of the page.

A great curriculum...

is underpinned by aims, values and purpose

enthuses and excites all learners; it develops a 'love of learning' in everyone

ensures progression of knowledge, understanding and skills

provides rich cross-curricular opportunities

is inclusive, accessible and relevant to the children’s interests, needs and abilities

facilitates creativity, experiential learning and problem solving

provides purposeful opportunities for learners to innovate, be challenged and develop their confidence

prepares children for the future and helps develop a range of transferable life skills

enables children to ask questions about the world around them through an understanding and appreciation of local, national and global communities


Tilston learners are...

happy, well-rounded and able to make independent choices

confident life-long learners with a wide range of interests, ambitions and goals

open-minded, adaptable and resilient

able to think things through and work strategically and purposefully

prepared to take risks and never afraid to learn from mistakes

willing to listen to and respond positively to advice and constructive criticism

committed to working harmoniously with each other and use initiative

well prepared for the next step or stage in life

keen to contribute positively and responsibly to the local and wider communities
