Welcome to Tyndale.

Principal's Welcome

My name is Matt Watt and I am the proud principal of Tyndale Community School, a christian ethos primary school situated in East Oxford.

Our vision can be summed up by the following statement: Aim High, Reach Out, Together.

  1. Aim High - We have high aspirations for our children. All children will be life-long learners, maintaining high expectations for themselves with growing resilience and creativity.

  2. Reach Out- We want children to realise that they can influence society by making a positive contribution to the world, both now and in the future.

  3. Together- We want children to understand that they are never alone in achieving their goals and that collaboration is the best way forward. It takes a village to raise a child.

We hope you enjoy visiting our school website. You can get a flavour of some of what we've been up to over the last year as you scroll down this page. If you need any further information or would like to visit the school, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Warm Regards,

Mr Matthew Watt

Principal

House Point Tally

One of the rewards our children earn for showing our school values are house points! See how the competition between the houses is heating up this term in our bar chart.

We were very busy during lockdown:

We moved to Oxford Diocese Schools Trust on May 1st. They have helped our dreams to become a reality.

  • Builders were working really hard over the Summer holiday as you can see from the photos.

  • You can also see our plan for this next year which is part of the school's development plan.

We created a foodbox scheme providing food for a family for a full week.

  • We raised almost £30,000 and delivered around 750 foodboxes

  • We supported families from a range of schools in East Oxford, not just Tyndale.

  • We provided foodboxes for families who might not be on benefits-related free school meals but needed a bit of help during lockdown.

We wrote a prayer for our city.

  • We united the city as they prayed our prayer found at oxfordprayer.org

  • The Oxford prayer has been viewed 1.7 thousand times

  • It was played on BBC Radio Oxford (with an interview) Click here to listen

  • Our Year Six Team, including children created their own version, too...

We became virtual pen-pals with a care home and encouraged others to do the same.

  • Click here for an interview with BBC radio Oxford about it

  • Visit our special virtual pen-pal page by clicking here

  • We have supported other schools and settings creating links with care homes too!

We quickly moved to online learning

  • We were already using google classroom so teachers were able to add work on a daily basis.

  • We live streamed for a celebration week, which included quizzes, a cook-a-thon, storytelling and more.

  • We loaned families laptops if they were unable to afford them yet they were not able to receive one from the government.

  • We created virtual assemblies which kept the community together.

We are building community in East Oxford.

Tyndale Community Gospel Choir started in September 2019 and they had their first concert in December for over 700 guests! The choir was made up of sixty people who live in East Oxford and love to sing. The choir continued to connect virtually during lockdown.

Tyndale Community School was contacted by Oxford University to welcome the King and Queen of Spain to our city. The reason they chose us is because we are such a welcoming school.

Our children were in many national papers waving a their flags on such a special occasion.

Where are we?

Tyndale Community School is found on the border of Cowley and Headington. We have children on roll from all across Oxford including Blackbird Leys, Barton and Cutteslowe as it is easy to reach from the Oxford Ring Road. There is space for two vehicles in the loading bay and there are two disabled parking spaces in the car park. There is on street parking nearby, but this is limited during drop off and pick up.

We are close to Marsh Park and border a golf course which we regularly use for sports and forest school.
