About Us

Statement of Federation

Tysoe CE Primary School and Wellesbourne CE Primary School Federated in January 2015.

The two schools are led by Lindsey Oscroft with a head of school in each setting overseeing day to day management of schools.

Since federation we have a single governing body for both schools. As a federated organisation we have worked closely together, extending opportunities of provision for everyone.

Each of our schools retains their own individual budgets, admission procedures, uniform, Ofsted and SIAMS inspections. They also uphold their own distinctive ethos and traditions whilst gaining from being part of a supportive, vibrant, and Christian community with many more opportunities.

Across the federation we seek to stimulate the love of learning in our children so that they want to achieve to the very best of their abilities. Every child is valued as an individual and encouraged to reach their full potential within a setting where they are happy, confident, well cared for and, most importantly where they are kind and considerate towards each other.

Church and Local Links

Church Links


As a Church of England school, Tysoe has links with St Mary’s Church. The close proximity of the church means we can use it for collective worship on special occasions.  The church also arranges events and workshops for children and families throughout the year. These are advertised by posters in the village, on Tysoe Village Facebook page, and in the school newsletter.
