My name is Ed Carlyle and I am delighted to be the Executive Headteacher of Titchmarsh Church of England Primary School. I warmly welcome you to our school website, which I hope will give you just a flavour of some of the amazing things we do at this wonderful school.

Building Friendships....Inspiring Confidence.…Creating Futures….Nurturing Faith - this is our motto and very much our vision for our school - we are determined to ensure that our pupils get the very best we can give them and that they leave us with a wide and deep range of skills and achievements that will set them up for successful lifelong learning. As a Church School, we have chosen the Parable of the Good Shepherd (Luke:15) as our core value - everyone in our community matters and we all work together to ensure that each and every child with us gets the most from their time with us. We know all of our children as individuals and we go out of our way to make sure they all flourish and succeed.

Some of the comments from our Parents' Survey sum up what it is like to be part of Titchmarsh Primary School:

‘The ‘family feel’ of the school, where everyone knows each other and everyone is friendly’

‘It’s a homely environment and it welcomes you and it’s a great start for our children to learn good values’

‘It feels like an extension of the family’

This is a great school. I think so, the parents think so and, most importantly, the children agree. The best way to find out for yourself to come and visit us and see us in action. On behalf of the children and staff, I would like to personally invite you to come and visit us - please contact the School to make an appointment or keep an eye out for the forthcoming events. Our Titchmarsh School Calendar is available on this site and has all of the key events for the rest of the year so you don't have to miss out!

In the meantime, I am sure that our website will give you a wonderful glimpse into life at Titchmarsh Church of England Primary School.

Mr Ed Carlyle
Executive Headteacher

As a Church school, we are also keen to keep providing opportunities for our children and our community to worship and Mrs Campbell has provided the link below that we thought you might find comforting in these difficult times.


Reverend Brian has also asked us to share this link with you for you and your children to use at home.



Stay Safe, everyone!

During the closure period, it is essential that everyone stays safe by following the Government's guidelines on social distancing and self-isolation. It is also important that everyone stays safe online. Please see the updated guidance on our Safeguarding pages, particularly with the use of Tik Tok.

You'll also find an Online Resources pack to download, courtesy of Simon Aston, NCC's Online Safety Officer. You can also follow this link: http://www.northamptonshirescb.org.uk/about-northamptonshire-safeguarding-children-partnership/news/covid-19-online-safety-advice-parents/

Coronavirus - Advice for Parents and Guardians

Please see 'This Term's Newsletters' for a letter regarding closure of the school regarding Covid-19.

New guidance for households with symptoms

Yesterday, the Government introduced new guidance on whole household isolation in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak:

- if you live alone and you have symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19), however mild, stay at home for 7 days from when your symptoms started

-  if you live with others and you or another member of the household have symptoms of coronavirus, then all household members must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill. It is likely that people living within a household will infect each other or be infected already. Staying at home for 14 days will greatly reduce the overall amount of infection the household could pass on to others in the community

·   for anyone in the household who starts displaying symptoms, they need to stay at home for 7 days from when the symptoms appeared, regardless of what day they are on in the original 14-day isolation period.

The symptoms are:

 ·         A high temperature (37.8 degrees and above)

·         A new, continuous cough

The full stay at home guidance for households with these symptoms can be found here:

·         https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-stay-at-home-guidance

Government advice is that, until advised otherwise, all other pupils should attend school as usual. A full risk assessment is in place and we are ensuring that the children know about the risks, maintain regular handwashing and that all visitors to the school also wash their hands. As an immediate measure, we would request that parents drop their children off at the classroom door, rather than come into school for Early Morning Starters – a member of staff will be on the door to pass on any queries or concerns. Thank you for your understanding with this.

If you have require further information about Covid-19, this  can be found on the Public Health England Blog and the NHS UK website and we will provide updates as we receive them.

Please do not hesitate to contact the school if you require any further information.  

NEW - please find a guide to talking to your children about Coronavirus under our 'Newsletters' section.

Creative Mission - The Beauty of Buildings

We are all loving our latest Mission - 'The Beauty of Buildings'. Miss Willis is leading one of the challenges which is to take interesting pictures of the school and the church. We have some budding amateur photographers at Titchmarsh and think their pictures are ultra-professional. Is yours included?

Welcome back, everyone!

We hope that you have had a lovely summer and are very much looking to a very happy and successful new year at Titchmarsh. We are also delighted to welcome Miss Willis, our new Little Owls (Year 1) Teacher - we have a very exciting year ahead.

We also have some very exciting news for you - this year we are having a whole school focus on Reading and we are launching the Free Reader's Card. Everyone who is a free reader will be given a booklet with recommended books for 10 different story types - once you have read a book from each genre and completed a short book review for each one, you will have completed your Free Reader's Card and will be invited to a Reading Tea with Mr Carlyle. He is very much looking forward to hearing about the different books you have been reading and cannot wait to see who his first guest will be. Will it be you?


Creative Mission - Mission Launch!

We are really excited to announce our next Creative Mission - we are looking for Lost Words! You may have heard of the book 'The Lost Words' and we have been totally inspired by it. We are working with Warmington School, Brigstock Latham's Church of England School and Bishop Stopford School on our latest project and we are looking at the natural world and learning about local wildlife and habitats to make sure that they are cared for and survive. We had a lovely day on Friday which Mrs Butler organised for us with art projects, visits from the RSPB, tree surgeons and a local beekeepr to help us understand more about our local wildlife and how important it is for us all to care for it. We are looking forward to sharing more of our discoveries with you!

Thank you to Mrs Butler for her wonderful work in organising this mission for us!


Our Easter Artwork

As part of our preparations for Easter, every class created a piece of artwork telling part of the Easter Story. The work is displayed in the Church for everyone to see in lots more detail!

New Year, New Mission!


We are really excited about our next Creative Mission! We are going to be working on Design Technology and we have chosen our teams for this mission. There will be Team Boat, Team Bridges, Team Marble Run, Team Food and Team Puppet. We're not going to say any more for the moment but we will be having a Sharing Showcase just before the Easter Holidays so you can see our fantastic work!


The Titchmarsh Wartime Tea Dance

Thank you to everyone who came along to join us for our Wartime Tea Dance at the Church on Monday November 26th. It was wonderful to welcome so many people - friends and family and many special guests from the village - we were delighted that you could come and join us for our special afternoon. I'm sure you'll agree that the Church looked lovely with the bunting that the children helped to make and there were displays, memory jars and pupils' work from the Creative Mission topic of 'Remembrance' to enjoy. Plus lots of tea and cake for everyone - thank you to the volunteers who helped to get it all ready and to those who kindly donated gifts of food to make our tea extra special. We also welcomed Mrs Ettridge and Mrs Bull, the Headteachers of Brigstock Primary School, who have been working with us on Creative Mission - it was lovely to have them join us to share in such a great event.





As well as the tea and cake, we had several dances the children had learned, letters written by families during WW1, a talk about the local history project where we researched the soldiers from Titchmarsh who fought in the wars and a singalong to 'We'll Meet Again' and 'The White Cliffs of Dover'. Some of the visitors got up and danced as well which was wonderful, too!

Thank you to all of the staff who helped to make both the topic of 'Remembrance' so special for the children and for all their wonderful work in making the afternoon such a success. Thank you, as well, to everyone who came and supported our special afternoon.


Well done, Titchmarsh!

We are delighted and excited to share some wonderful news with you - read on to see the fantastic comments from the Minister of State for School Standards, the Rt Hon Nick Gibb MP.

Well done to the pupils who worked so hard and to Mrs Parsons and Mrs McClean! We're so proud of you all!

Ofsted Statement

"Pupils speak with excitement about what it means to be a pupil at Titchmarsh.  The curriculum ensures that they encounter a wide range of interesting activities to broaden their horizons.  The school's faith-based ethos complements the very effective work the school does to promote British values.  Still more importantly, pupils' attitudes towards one another, and their generosity in helping others less fortunate than themselves, demonstrate their commitment to the school's values."
