Welcome to The Epiphany School
Welcome from Dave Simpson, Headteacher
Welcome to The Epiphany School. I hope the information available in this website is useful and in conjunction with our Home/School Agreement, will help you to understand the principles upon which the school is founded as well as giving you a flavour of the activities that take place here. We are a friendly school with a real family feel. We place great emphasis on knowing, caring for and supporting all our children and promote positive relationships based on praise and encouragement within a Christian ethos.
Children, parents, governors, teaching and non teaching staff, work closely together to develop a team spirit which is special to our school. I would like to emphasise the importance we attach to building a successful partnership with parents. It is through working together, within a framework of clear expectations, that we can help every child achieve their potential and ensure that they enjoy their learning at The Epiphany School. The importance we place on working in partnership with parents means that the school is well supported by all members of the community.
We are striving for continuous improvement in all that we do. Parents and carers are extremely positive and comments such as ‘It is an excellent school and I feel very lucky to be able to send my child here.' were typical of those received by the inspector in our latest Ofsted inspection. Inspectors also commented, 'Pastoral care is excellent so pupils feel safe and valued within a very supportive community. The pupils can make significant contributions to improving the school themselves.
The highly imaginative curriculum is central to the effectiveness of the school. It is an exceptionally well-designed model that combines a number of important learning experiences within memorable topics. It motivates pupils so they are keen to come to school and attendance is consistently high. Pupils are keen on athletic pursuits and enthusiastically take up sporting activities, reflecting both the school’s national awards.'
We are fortunate to have large and well cared for grounds and these are used to promote our excellent sporting reputation as well as developing understanding of environmental issues. We are a well equipped school with excellent facilities. Our excellent reputation is based on the hard work and dedication of staff and governors supported by an active Parent’s Association (ESFA). By constantly striving for improvement we are confident that we will be able to build on this reputation and continue to serve the community well.
I hope that you will find this website helpful and informative. We look forward to helping you and your child participate fully in all that we have to offer and we are confident that you will, in due course, look back with very fond memories at the years spent at The Epiphany School.
