Hello, my name is Mr Tamgumus (Mr T) and I warmly welcome you to the Braunstone Community Primary School website.
I am very proud to be able to call myself the Head teacher of this amazing school. I grew up on this estate and attended one of the local secondary schools. I remember sitting in an English literature lesson (Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet was being covered by the teacher) when I thought, “Wow - what an amazing job teaching must be!”. I want to help inspire the next generation to be whatever they want to be – to be the best version of themselves.
The current senior leadership team and I love working at this vibrant, busy and exciting inner-city school which looks after and educates 422 children. We are ever ready in making sure that the children receive learning that is limitless through an enriched curriculum.
The school has a dedicated and hardworking staff who work tirelessly to support every child – striving to provide the best possible learning experiences both inside the classroom and out.
Our dedicated well-being team work at the heart of our school and provide care for the children and their families. They provide vital links between the community and us. To the school, parental involvement and engagement is paramount and, as such, families are frequently invited to come in and see what their children are learning.
Braunstone Community Primary School provides a level of togetherness, support, and care that I feel allows children to flourish. They can try without the worry of getting things wrong and know that we will always support them to find a solution that best suits them.
The staff, children and advisory board are very proud of the school’s vision which can be accessed in further detail here.
The words, Belong, Care, Persevere, Succeed feed into everything we do – on a daily basis. We feel it is this vision that will help our children to aspire to be whatever they want, and, with the right attitude, they can achieve the targets they set themselves.
Our focus word for the academic year 2020-2021 is – Persevere.
It is vital that our children (especially during these uncertain times of Covid-19) continue to try their best no matter how difficult things may seem. They have to continue to improve, progress and better themselves. I know that if they do this – they will definitely be successful and they will certainly be the best versions of themselves.
Working in partnership with parents is crucial if we are to ensure all of our children feel safe, happy, valued and achieve their full potential. I look forward to meeting you all in the near future, at school events, assemblies, social occasions or even a quick chat on the playground!
Halil Tamgumus (Mr T).
