Tattingstone is a small village of about five hundred people, situated to the south of Ipswich.
Children come to the school from both Tattingstone and Wherstead villages, and from outside our catchment area, from the neighbouring town of Ipswich or surrounding areas.
The school has approx 72 children on roll and is housed in a delightful Victorian building of flint and soft red brick dating back from 1841. This, together with the adjacent school house and 'Cabin' offers a wide range of accommodation, including a technology out-building, Early Years unit, music and library areas.
The school has both hard and grass play areas which retain the features of a friendly family garden.
In addition to our own facilities, we have use of the village playing field close by and the village hall for P.E., Dance and Drama.
The school has a very active PTA and Governing Body. Both support the school in specific roles with the PTA organising both social and fundraising activities, which are well supported by families and staff. The Governors meet regularly to discuss strategic issues about the safe and effective leadership of the school and are actively involved in school life and in monitoring and supporting our teaching.
The church and school work closely together, focusing on the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of all members of the school community. Daily acts of collective worship and family assemblies are important for sustaining and developing the ethos of the school.
Our School Council discusses on a regular basis , the issues that are important to the various classes. We try to act upon children's suggestions whenever possible. We consider it important to work closely with all members of the community - children, parents, staff, governors, the church and friends of the school.

Open the Book Assemblies
We are very lucky to have a group of people who come and act out a variety of stories from the Bible and put on interactive experiences for the children. The children love watching and participating in these special assemblies.
