Tyndale Primary School

Welcome from the Headteacher

Welcome to Tyndale Primary School, where I have the pleasure and privilege of being the Headteacher. I joined the school in September 2019 and we became a proud member of the Greenshaw Learning Trust, a ‘family’ of like-minded schools, that collaborate to provide mutual support, share their good practice and learn from each other, whilst retaining and developing their own distinctive character.

I am an enthusiastic, inspirational and passionate leader with 7 years of leadership experience in two Greenshaw Learning Trust primary schools and have worked in the Yate area for the past 24 years. I have a proven track record of rapidly transforming schools by improving the quality of teaching, learning, behaviour and results.

My teaching and learning philosophy derives from my simplistic belief that every pupil has the right to learn and every teacher has the right to teach. I have a commitment to ensure that every pupil who attends a school that I work within is provided with the best chance of success, to enable a future of endless learning opportunities and limitless aspirations irrespective of background, prior attainment or SEND. This belief is entrenched from my own successful teaching career and extensive experience of SEN, both in my role as Teacher of the Deaf and within the SENCo role of which I have 9 years experience.

I believe as a Headteacher, my role is to care personally whilst challenging directly to ensure that all pupils and staff know they are consistently being supported to be the best version of themselves. I feel privileged to work collaboratively with the Tyndale community, parents and governors to give every pupil who attends Tyndale Primary the best chance of success.

Our 'Pathway' allows pupils to develop their character as well as their academic journey through school. We give pupils the opportunity to take part in enrichment activities such as music and sport; they have the opportunity to attend a number of trips, including a Year 5 and 6 camp; they perform in musical productions; they are ambassadors for events; they take part in poetry competitions and they listen to inspirational speakers to seed future career aspirations.

Come and visit our school if you'd like to see any of these things in action!
