Takeley Primary School

Learning, achieving and enjoying together

Welcome to Takeley Primary School

‘Learning, achieving and enjoying together’  

The primary purpose of our school is to ensure all our children learn. When children make progress in their learning a sense of achievement and a feeling of satisfaction in a job well done will follow. Enjoyment is a key factor that promotes learning as a lifelong skill that goes beyond just their school days, but supports them well throughout their working lives. Developing together both teamwork and independence is essential to enhance learning, personal and social skills, so that all children one day can play their part in future societies and help shape the world that we will live in.
