TPS Core Values

At Tottington Primary School we have created a set of core values that underpin all the decisions we make as a school. We feel these values are very important to our TPS family, our school context and the aspirations we have for your children whilst they are with us. When children leave our school we aim to ensure all our children leave with a full TPS core values toolkit enabling them to become happy, productive and positive citizens both in our local community and the wider world.
