Welcome to Timberscombe CofE First School
We are part of the Moorland Federation group of schools. As such we are all very proud to put children at the heart of all our decision making. We share our head teacher, Mrs Philp, with Dunster First School, this means we can pool our strengths to ensure the children get the richest experience possible. We are very proud of the Christian aims and values on which our school is based and we aim to provide an exciting and engaging education for each and every child. There has been much exciting work in the Spring term of 2019 with our community through our 'ethos, vision and values' group, who have been meeting weekly to revisit what really is at the core of our school.
As a staff we feel privileged to work with young, enthusiastic learners and want to make their time with us as exciting and productive as possible. We believe that children thrive in a positive environment where there is an ethos of nurture with respect for the individual, and unlimited hopes and aspirations for each of their bright futures. We aim to be a school where all people feel welcome and valued and where all our children can develop the life skills and learning habits necessary for personal success and happiness.
In our recent short inspection in November 2017 we were remained a Good school: 'Pupils are enthusiastic about their learning and enjoy their time at school.'
If you feel you need more information about the school or would like to come and visit us, please do not hesitate to contact the school.
As a Church of England school we are proud to support the vision for education:
Educating for wisdom, knowledge and skills: enabling discipline, confidence and delight in seeking wisdom and knowledge, and developing talents in all areas of life.
Educating for hope and aspiration: enabling healing, repair and renewal, coping wisely when things go wrong, opening horizons and guiding people into ways of fulfilling them.
Educating for community and living well together: a core focus on relationships, participation in communities and the qualities of character that enable people to flourish together.
Educating for dignity and respect: the basic principle of respect for the value and preciousness of each person, treating each person as a unique individual of inherent worth.
