Staying Safe

School Blog

During and after Lockdown we can use our blog to keep you posted on school news.

On behalf of the staff, governors and pupils may I welcome you to Tennyson Road Infant School!

We are a friendly Infant School with a Nursery provision serving our local community. The school is set in its own grounds and although named the adjacent Tennyson Road is in fact sited on Highfield Road.

At Tennyson Road we want our children to enjoy learning and coming to school, to settle in happily and to derive a sense of purpose, achievement and independence. We aim to enable each child, regardless of his/her ability, to reach their full potential. This can only occur if school and home build a sound relationship based on mutual respect, trust, understanding, co-operation and regular communication.

Vision - Be The Best You Can Be! 

At Tennyson Road Infant School, we believe all children should be provided with opportunities and experiences that enable them to become the best that they can be. We are committed to providing a positive, safe and stimulating environment for children to learn, where everyone is valued.  

‘Be The Best You Can Be’, reflects our understanding and belief that all children can achieve their full potential when provided with high-quality learning experiences based on a broad and balanced curriculum, along with unending pastoral support and care. 

We believe that education should take place in a fully inclusive environment with equal opportunities for all and that all children are taught to value religious and cultural differences. Our school sits within our local community with positive links to the wider and global communities. 

Our Values

We enable all children to ‘Be The Best You Can Be’, by providing key learning opportunities throughout our curriculum and also through teaching children through our rights respecting approach.  

Our values are at the heart of all that we do for children at Tennyson Road Infant School and we have worked hard to ensure that they are not only embedded through our curriculum and behaviour system but also taught and referred to explicitly. Our rules are based on kindness and mutual respect.

At Tennyson Road Infant school, we ensure that each child feels safe and respected in all that they do. We create a warm, safe and nurturing environment that is inclusive of all learners and enables each individual the opportunity to be successful in our school community through the value of respect. Children understand that respect is both a right and a responsibility that enables them success in any future aspiration.  

Our Class Charters reflect our rights respecting approach (Unicef Charter of Children’s Rights)

Try Respect Inspire Succeed

At TRIS we all:

Try our best in everything we do

Respect ourselves, each other and the environment

Inspire others by our good behaviour and attitudes

Succeed together.

 We make sure we are Focussed And Busy.

 In our school you will see fabulous walking, fabulous working, fabulous attitude and kindness.

There are lots of things for the children to remember so we have simplified it in to 3 rules:

Be Ready Be Respectful Be Safe

 in everything we do.

If you are considering a place for your child at Tennyson Road, please contact us for an informal discussion and we will answer any questions or queries that you may have.

We strive, at all times, to make our school a place where people like to be. 

I look forward to meeting you and your child(ren).
