Dear Parents and Carers,
It gives me great pleasure to write to you as the Headteacher of Twyford St Mary’s and welcome you and your children to what I am sure will be a very busy and exciting term – it always is at TSM!
Firstly, let me begin by saying what a privilege it is to lead this school in its next era, leading what I believe to be a school with huge potential. I am delighted with our Ofsted grading of Good, a recent Excellent grading from SIAMs and I remain determined to secure an Outstanding future for the school. But one step at a time! I have the highest expectations of all staff and children and it is my intention, by working together, that we raise standards in every area, helping our children to achieve their full potential.
My priority is always to take the school forward recognising the current strengths as well as address areas where the school needs to improve. Annually, I will send you a survey to help with this evaluation process. Testimonials from previous years can be viewed under our Parent section of this website. The evaluation process will ensure that we are able to meet the needs of all our children to achieve the very best in their academic, creative, personal, physical, moral and spiritual development and I value your input in this.
For those of you who may be new to our school, please do arrange a visit via our school office. You will find a warm and welcoming school full of children with a sense of pride who are happily engaged in well-planned purposeful activities. The Twyford TEAM values of Courage, Care, Joy and Respect certainly permeate through the school! Their positive impact continues to underpin all the work we do.
I look forward to meeting many of you in the weeks and months ahead and, in the meantime, wish you and your children all the very best for a successful academic year.
Mrs Sophie Davies
