Tugby CofE Primary School
Tugby is a small, unique village primary school set in the peaceful rolling hills of the highly sought after east Leicestershire rural countryside. The school is an integral part of the local community that caters for pupils aged 4 to 11. Tugby school is an Outstanding (SIAMS church inspection) Church of England primary school and the continuous school improvements have been reflected in the Good grade awarded to the school during the latest Ofsted inspection.
Our mission as a Church of England primary school, deeply rooted in a strong Christian tradition, is to develop happy, young people with enquiring minds, a spirit of curiosity, respect for themselves, others and the environment so that they will have the skills, resilience and adaptability to thrive in a rapidly changing world.
The bible verse that sets our mission statement in context comes from the words of Jesus: " I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full." John 10:10. It is this flourishing in the love and grace of God that will enable our children to be wise, hopeful, and live well together with dignity and respect in God's world.
The Tugby Vision Star represents our school. Within the star are pupils, teachers, support staff, governors, parents, friends and community. Children are at the centre of the Star because they are at the heart of all we do at school.
The points of the star represent our six distinctive Christian values of love, hope, truth, trust, respect and forgiveness.
When these values are seen in our daily lives within the community, the star will shine at its brightest and we know we are following the commandment from Jesus to ‘"ove your neighbour as yourself" (Gospel of Mark chapter 12 verse 31).
“Pupils are happy and relationships throughout this school are strong. The school’s ‘character programme’ helps pupils to become well-rounded citizens. Pupils are respectful and friendly towards each other, staff and visitors.”
Pupils at Tugby School meet national expectations, or above, in all core subjects and well above average both locally and nationally in Maths. The school has achieved continuous improvement for all core subjects over the past 3 years.
