Welcome to Tylers Green Middle School
I am delighted to be the headteacher here at Tylers Green Middle School and am very proud of the reputation of this wonderful school. TGMS is a very inspiring place both to work and learn, and is very successful because, I believe, we have high expectations which are consistent across the entire school, and secondly we have enthusiastic pupils who love learning. Importantly, my view of the school is backed up by what others say about TGMS, our pupils, our parents, our governors and the wider community. Indeed, in January 2016, we were inspected by OFSTED and their findings were as follows:
“This school continues to be good. The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. The school is a happy, caring place. Pupils have a positive and friendly outlook and speak highly of their school. They enjoy learning and are thoughtful and keen to explore and discuss ideas with teachers and one another. Well attended after-school clubs, such as cooking and sport, as well as educational visits effectively promote pupils’ wider learning. The school has a culture of emphasising and rewarding positive attitudes and behaviour. Pupils are well prepared for life in modern Britain.” (OFSTED -January 2016)
I was delighted to ’step up’ and become the Headteacher in April 2016 and, together with my leadership team, we are on our journey to move our school to being recognised as an outstanding school. Building upon our numerous strengths, I aim to continue to develop a vibrant and inspirational learning community which prepares children for both the next phase of their education and life in modern Britain. Success comes initially from encouragement and opportunity, backed by high expectations and a commitment to help every child achieve the very best that they can. I want your children to be part of a unified, successful and caring school community in which they feel safe, challenged and happy. Our ethos underpins all that we do here. The school’s staff and governors are committed to delivering the very best educational experience which we can, and we welcome and encourage the support of parents in delivering this to the children of TGMS. High academic standards and high aspirations are fundamental to achieving our goals. By providing rich and varied range of experiences, both inside and outside of the classroom, we allow pupils to discover new skills and talents as well as deepen and master existing ones. Whether it is in the classroom, on the sports field, the stage or within our community, I want the pupils of TGMS to shine brightly and be proud to be part of our school.
We look forward to welcoming your child, as well as your family, to our school community. The education and development of your child, I believe, flourishes best of all when it is based on a happy and successful partnership. I very much look forward to working in partnership with you.
