About Us

Our School

Bobbing Village School and Iwade School converted to academy status and formed the multi academy trust in June 2014.

Timu means “team” in Swahili, a word which represents how we work at all levels within and across the schools.

Together Everyone Achieves More

We recognise everyone as an individual and we nurture, value and develop them. We aim to achieve the highest standards in all that we do and to have happy children and staff, eager and excited to come to school. We work in collaboration with other schools and organisations seeking the best innovative practice in teaching, sharing new ideas and learning from others. We use research as a springboard for change. We strive to make our schools even better, recruiting the very best to meet the needs of a changing world. We foster a positive attitude which allows everyone to develop new skills, build resilience and achieve their dreams.

Our children become:

  • Successful lifelong learners
  • Happy, healthy and confident individuals
  • Responsible citizens
  • Resilient, ready to adapt and contribute in a changing world


TIMU Academy Trust are aware that child protection and safeguarding are fundamental to the welfare of all children in our care.

The staff in our schools are committed to Safeguarding and Child Protection of all our children and provide a safe environment at school.  We notice and take appropriate action to help any of our children who are at risk of, or suffering from, significant harm.

Ofsted’s definition of safeguarding
“Safeguarding is not just about protecting children from deliberate harm. It includes a wide range of
issues relating to pupil’s welfare, health and safety.”


This page will guide you to information about the current and historic performance of our school, with information about standards, the progress of pupils and the findings of the school’s most recent OFSTED inspection.

Pupil Premium

Pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.

All schools are required to publish details of how we spend the pupil premium and the effect this has had on the attainment of the pupils who attract the funding.

Sports Funding

In April 2013, the Government announced new funding of £150million for physical education (PE) and sport. This funding has been allocated to all primary schools from 1st September 2013 and is to be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision.

Timu Academy Trust schools have been working towards the delivery of high quality PE and school sport provision for a number of years and already employed specialist PE staff, led by a specialist PE teacher.
