Welcome to Teignmouth Community School Mill Lane by Mrs K M Quinn
I would like to offer a very warm welcome to the Teignmouth Community School Primary Phase website. I am sure many things have led you to visit this website. These may have included the last Good Ofsted report; the children’s academic achievements, our Read Write Inc model school status, our child led creative curriculum, dedicated Literacy and Numeracy time within the curriculum, our seaside location and many other excellent and attractive features.
However, none of these fully convey our commitment to the young people of this South Devon town. Our growing success over the last three years has led us to the position of achieving very good outcomes in everything we do. Our aim is to go one better
At Teignmouth Community School, Mill Lane we believe that the individual relationships developed between adults, children and families are central in supporting all children to achieve their full potential, in learning and in life.
Our team of dedicated teachers and teaching assistants, work together to ensure that all children make great progress. We are committed to providing a happy, well disciplined, nurturing environment, where children can thrive.
Our ‘Stay on Green’ behaviours of honesty, respect, resilience, consideration, teamwork, responsibility, communication and independence encourage the children to work their hardest and support each other, at all times. In EYFS and KS1, these behaviours are accompanied by a character and story to help the children understand these core values. These characters are Olivia the honest Owl, Lenny the respectful Lion, Theo the resilient Turtle, Ernie the considerate Elephant, Betty the team working Bee, Sidney the responsible Squirrel, Daisy the communicative Dolphin and Charlie the independent Crocodile. The stories are shared during assemblies every week.
We are proud of our creative curriculum, which is enhanced by outdoor learning. Every child will be able to take part in a wide variety of opportunities; forest school, residential trips, sporting activities, performances and enrichment trips are an intrinsic part of this curriculum and we place great importance on these areas. Through these activities children can develop an understanding of the wider world, their place within it and how they can make a difference.
In January 2017, we opened our new Early Years building and tailor made outdoor classroom, which adds many more possibilities and opportunities that we are keen to exploit for the benefit of the school and wider community.
Visitors often comment on the friendly, purposeful atmosphere and the range and quality of work going on here.
We always enjoy showing people around our school and if you would like to make an appointment to what we have to offer, please contact us on 01626 772320.
