Tatworth Primary School: Home
Welcome to Tatworth Primary School - "a Village Academy".
We are a very popular village primary school situated in new buildings completed in 2001. The School is in the middle of Tatworth, two miles south of Chard, in the south of Somerset. We have about 210 children aged 4 – 11 who are taught in 7 classes, one class for each year group.
Tatworth Primary School provides the opportunities and challenges for all children to achieve their personal best academically and socially and to develop confidence in themselves and respect for others in a secure, learning environment.
We are a busy and successful school that converted to ‘a Village Academy’ on 1 August 2011. This means that we receive our money direct from Central Government and are no longer part of Somerset County Council. We enjoy an excellent reputation locally amongst the community we seek to serve.
Welcome to our school!
In Case of Emergency Closures due to Snow
We will always try to keep the school open.
However …. in the event of very heavy snow, school closures will be announced on the Somerset County Council website http://www.somerset.gov.uk/environment-and-planning/emergencies/snow-and-ice/
In the event of a closure before the start of the school day - there will be a headline message on the front page of the school website.
If the school has to close during the school day, again the message will be posted on our website and contact will be made by text/phone to parents where necessary. Please would all parents ensure that emergency contact numbers are up to date, and nominate another parent to collect your child if necessary.
It is the policy of the Governors that the school will remain open if at all possible. However, occasionally conditions are too bad for staff to travel safely into school necessitating a closure. These occasions are very rare.
Any pupils who have hot meals are asked to come with a packed lunch if the roads are snowy as it is likely that our provider kitchen maybe closed.
