An "outstanding" school that strives to continue to be outstanding.
Here at Toddington St George Church of England School we aim to provide a secure and caring environment within which the children can grow in confidence and independence. Each child will benefit from memorable, enjoyable and challenging learning experiences which will enable him/her to develop academically, socially, physically and spiritually. A socially acceptable code of behaviour, which has regard to the needs and feelings of others, is encouraged at all times.
A message from our Headteacher
Welcome to our school website. We hope this
gives you a window on school life at St.
George’s. I have had the privilege of leading the
children and staff at Toddington St George Church of England School (TSG) for six years.
At TSG we believe strongly in ensuring every child is known, taught well,
valued and cared for. This belief is underpinned by the sure foundation of the Christian
ethos of the school.
At Toddington St George’s we work hard to give
all the children the very best education we can. We have developed many aspects
of the school curriculum, the school site and the opportunities for children to
enjoy activities or be cared for before and after school.
There are many highlights to choose from, and
you will see how we have developed the breadth of the curriculum on our Awards
page or on the Class pages. You will see children achieve at a high level –see
the Achievement and attainment section of our Results page. In each photo you
will get a taste of the atmosphere and mutual respect children and staff have for
each other in school.
