Our Ethos Statement

Great Tey Church of England Primary School serves its community by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian beliefs and practice.  It encourages an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith and promotes Christian values through the experience it offers to all its children, whilst ensuring that we reflect and celebrate the backgrounds and faiths of all.

Children enter school eager to make sense of the world.  Great Tey provides a broad and balanced curriculum that is well matched to each child's differing needs and abilities, encompassing spiritual, moral, emotional, social, cultural, intellectual and physical development.  We have created a secure, friendly atmosphere that rejoices in success, but where it is safe to make mistakes.  Therefore children feel able to reach their potential, learn to value themselves and relate to others with consideration. 

Great Tey Primary values the partnership between staff, children, governors, parents, the church and the wider community and welcomes contributions from all stakeholders to help our pupils reach their potential.
