About Us


Ethos Statement

Recognising our historic foundation, Tickenham Church of England Primary School will preserve and develop its religious character in accordance with the principles of the Church of England and in partnership with the Church at parish and diocesan level.

Our school aims to serve the community by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice.  We encourage an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith, and promote Christian values through the experience we offer to all our pupils.

We aim to give each member of our school community an experience of Christian life and worship. 


Our inclusive character values the excellent relationships between the school, parents and the community in which each child is safe and treated as a valued individual. We encourage children to work together valuing themselves, their relationships, a growth mindset and a love of learning. We provide creative, first-hand learning opportunities that lead to high quality education, with children at the centre of all we do.


We have developed a set of 12 Christian Values that shape our practice of education.

Our values will be reflected through:

  • The leadership and management of our school and the shared aims and mission statement
  • Staff example and their use of moral language
  • The subjects of the curriculum
  • Collective worship
  • Learning
  • Teaching methods

  • Friendship
  • Respect
  • Honesty
  • Kindness 
  • Trust 
  • Forgiveness
  • Happiness
  • Compassion   
  • Empathy
