In February 2018, our school was rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted.
Fingringhoe C of E Primary is a small village school in an idyllic setting, right beside a village pond and an historic oak tree. We are proud of the supportive learning ethos which underpins our core values for pupils and staff alike. Using the ‘Growth Mindset’ philosophy, we promote a love for learning and embrace mistakes. Check out our Pupil Page for our latest growth mindset challenge. Find out more about the growth mindset philosophy here. Together – pupils, staff and governors – decided upon our core values of Courage, Care and Compassion. Find out more about our values here. The children say that the best things about our school are that “everyone knows each other” and that it “feels like one big family”. Certainly, our older children take pride in looking after the younger children, especially when we go to Church and on the playground. The school is very much part of the village community and we are well supported by our friends and neighbours. We have very close links with St Andrew’s Church which is just next door, where we go for collective worship, as well as for special occasions. Our Year 6 pupils enjoy leading Collective Worship in St Andrew’s Church on a fortnightly basis.
We teach the children in four classes, usually with two year groups in the class. Each class group also has the support of one or more learning support assistants.
Our teachers and support staff are well qualified and really enthusiastic. We are part of the Tiptree & Stanway Consortium, which means we work closely with other local schools on a regular basis. This enables staff to further develop their knowledge and understanding, and share best practice with other teachers.
We aim to deliver a high standard of education within the National Curriculum while at the same time enjoying our learning. The children’s learning also takes place outside, in and around the village and at our ‘outdoor classroom’.
