Tunstall Church of England Primary School is an extremely popular and oversubscribed church school on the outskirts of Sittingbourne, Kent.
In 2015, we started the process of moving from being a one-form entry to a two-form entry school and currently have 330 pupils on role. The school will continue to take in two full classes of Foundation Stage children each September until 2021 by which time we will be at our full complement of parallel classes in each year group.
Our pupils’ achievements are outstanding and this has been recognised by Ofsted in March 2016 when they deemed us to be an outstanding school in all areas. Our pupils’ attendance is excellent and this helps them fully to engage with a demanding curriculum, the breadth of which we are always aiming to increase.
We are fortunate to have moved to brand new, purpose-built premises in April 2016, funded by the DfE, the Kent Authority and Canterbury Diocese and we believe that our new location will continue to allow us to ensure outstanding pupil outcomes are maintained whilst also giving us as a community a physical and creative breathing space in which to unfurl and grow.
We value our bond with Tunstall Church very highly and embed Christian values through our teaching and modelling of knowledge, skills, thought processes and behaviour. We were graded ‘Outstanding’ in our latest SIAMS inspection.
