I feel very proud and privileged to be working as Head Teacher of this unique village school where everyone is welcomed with a smile. We have a wonderful community of staff, governors, parents and friends of the school who are fully committed to helping every child to do their best and fulfill their potential.
St Thomas à Becket is a school where every child really matters and we pride ourselves on the personal care and guidance we give our pupils. Christian values are at the core of everything that we do and every child is well known to all staff. We celebrate individual differences and want every child to have the opportunity to be equipped with the essential skills that will provide them with the chance to succeed in life outside school.
We believe education should be wide and varied so nurture personal, social, moral, spiritual and creative development alongside academic achievements. We develop a positive self esteem in our pupils and aim for them to become confident, motivated and independent learners. Our strong, positive partnerships with both parents and the local community support our children in their learning and development. We aim to develop confident, caring, questioning children who leave our school with self belief and are fully equipped for the next step in their education.
I think that St Thomas à Becket School is a very special place full of amazing children and positive, caring adults. Visitors are warmly welcomed so please contact the school to arrange a visit to see us for yourself. We look forward to meeting you.
Mrs Lisa Meredith
