Tadpole Farm CE Primary Academy (TFCEPA) is a growing, new educational establishment which will serve the developing community at Tadpole Garden Village, in the north of Swindon. Once fully open, the school will provide education for 420 4-11 year olds, with nursery provision for 52 rising 3 and 4 year olds, in a state of the art learning environment.
We also offer wraparound care, run by school staff, and nursery lunchtime care too. We run a wide variety of afterschool activity clubs chosen by the children and are actively involved with the wider community through Wiltshire Wildlife Trust, a drama programme with Prime Theatre Company and various other local initiatives.
Our school sits at the heart of Tadpole Garden Village; a development 1700 houses that will be completed over the next 10 years and the academy is the ‘village school’. However, we also serve the other communities within the North Swindon development, as school places here are well sought after and often over subscribed. Within the development there is extensive green space which will be managed by a Community Interest Company. The academy sits on the board of this company and it will give us weekly access to outdoor learning opportunities supported by the Wiltshire Wildlife Trust.
We are building our academy to be outstanding from the start. The children will be nurtured as learners, creators and talent growers; will develop skills in self-resilience, independence and supporting others; will have opportunities to be involved in the wider community and world community. As the development grows we will have the chance to help create a whole new village community as we will be the focal point of the development for some time to come.
DBAT, which is a multi-academy trust, is built on the principle of being a family which shares Christian values. There are currently 8 other schools within DBAT. Another DBAT Primary Academy will open in Purton in September 2016 and a senior school in Wichelstowe in September 2018 - DBAT are a multi academy trust who are growing steadily and strongly. As part of DBAT, we work closely with the other schools, sharing developments and innovations that benefit us all. We also work with and learn from the community of Church of England schools across the Diocese and within the National Society.
