Mrs Cathy Grace
On behalf of all the Governors, Staff and Children I would like to extend a very warm welcome to our school, we hope that you and your child enjoy your time with us and create affectionate memories that will last a lifetime.
At Thornton Primary School every child is just as important as the next. In short, every child matters. Everyone at Thornton is committed to providing a caring and friendly school, a happy place to learn because happy children make engaged learners.
Thornton Primary School is an inclusive community and we promote tolerance and respect for all. We value the individual contributions our pupils bring to school and we encourage and support them to fulfil their potential.
Our aim as a school is to provide a warm, friendly, atmosphere in a safe, caring environment, where children will be happy and successful. To achieve this, it is important that the school and home work positively together in partnership. This partnership is built through a regular dialogue between parents, child and school.
We want all children to achieve the highest possible standards and make maximum progress in relation to their prior learning: we want them to strive to know more and remember more. We want children to enjoy acquiring and using knowledge and skills and to question and explore, to acquire positive attitudes, as well as to gain independence, in order to become lifelong learners.
If you would like to know more about our school, please have a good look at our website and even better, get in touch and arrange a visit.

WOW is a pupil-led initiative where children self-report how they get to school every day using the interactive WOW Travel Tracker. If they travel sustainably (walk/wheel, cycle or scoot) once a week for a month, they get rewarded with a badge. It's that easy!
On average, WOW schools see a 30% REDUCTION IN CAR JOURNEYS taken to the school gate and a 23% INCREASE IN WALKING RATES.
