Bishop's Tachbrook CE Primary School is a one form intake school in the village of Bishop's Tachbrook. We are a successful and friendly school where our vision is: 'Everything we do, we do with love' (1 Corinthians 16:14), always staying true to our IDEALS:
We inquire about our wonderful world to discover and develop the gifts God has given us. We encourage each other and build each other up to achieve our full potential. We stay true to what is right: loving our neighbour as ourselves and walking out into the world shining as a light for other people, knowing that God gives us the strength to make all things possible and create a positive difference in our community.
At Bishop’s Tachbrook CE Primary School we provide a broad and balanced curriculum based around creating memorable moments and exciting learning opportunities that enable learning to be stored in pupils' long term memory. Cornerstones Curriculum, a nationally recognised approach for delivering outstanding learning opportunities for children, is the base for many of our wider curriculum subjects. The children also dive deeply into their understanding of faith through the Warwickshire Agreed Syllabus and Understanding Christianity resources. We encourage all children to discover and develop knowledge and skills across the curriculum by being inquisitive and working hard to achieve their full potential.
In English, a combination of Power of Reading, The Write Stuff and Alan Peat Sentence Types enables children to access high quality reading texts and share their own creative ideas in a range of ways both written by hand and electronically. All children are immersed in high quality texts through class reading time, and this opportunity to disappear daily to a different world is enjoyed by children and staff alike. We hold regular opportunities for children to read with other children across school in our 'Torchlight Tuesday' sessions. The children select which book they will share with their partner each time and enjoy reading together in torchlight.
White Rose provides children with a structured programme of mathematics learning that is progressive and deepened further through links with NCETM and NRich. We aim for all children to be fluent in arithmetic and teach at least one arithmetic session weekly. Children then apply their secure understanding of arithmetic to confidently reason about maths. All children in KS2 regularly practise their times tables using Times Tables Rock Stars.
