This is the first section of the inspection findings from our most recent SIAMS inspection:

The distinctiveness and effectiveness of Tintwistle CE Primary School as a Church of England school are good

 At Tintwistle, the deeply held Christian vision is shared and embraced by all members of the school community and profoundly influences everything that happens. The school powerfully lives out the vision creating a harmonious, vibrant and successful learning community. Strong, affirmative, positive relationships permeate the school contributing significantly to its loving, family feel. This clearly results in a school in which pupils and adults flourish. Being ‘with God’ and ‘surrounded by encouragement and love’ are key elements of the vision which are evident in all relationships. The school ensures that everyone is well known, embraced as members of the community and has their individual needs met. Policy and action for good mental health and emotional wellbeing is a major priority for the whole community. Consequently, everyone looks out for those who may be experiencing any sort of difficulty, offering care and signposting further support. This helps to ensure that no one who is struggling goes unnoticed and each of God’s children is valued and treated with dignity and respect.
