Welcome to Sir Henry Fermor Primary School now a proud member of the Tenax Schools Trust


Welcome to our school website. We hope you will find the information here both helpful and informative. For more than two hundred and fifty years, Sir Henry Fermor Church of England Primary School has been committed to serving its community. Our Ethos Statement is the foundation of our service here.

To please God in all we do

We achieve this by engaging in a high achieving, dynamic and creative school curriculum, underpinned by a strong Christian ethos. An education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice, welcoming all regardless of their faith or belief. It encourages an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith and promotes Christian values through the experience it offers to all its pupils. We believe that every child is unique and we aim to understand each individual and help them grow in all aspects of their education. ‘Respect’ is our core school value.

In addition the school has a monthly value linked to its programme of worship, PSHE and RE teaching. These are: Creativity, Love, Respect, Forgiveness, Perseverance, Sacrifice, Growth Mindset, Humility & Pride, Interdependence & independence, Fellowship and Faith.

Within these areas, our School Improvement Plan sets where we will concentrate our focus for the current year.  When we refresh our plan each year we take into account all the data that we have on children’s achievement and feedback from the school community, along with initiatives set by local and national government.
