Welcome to St Thomas' C of E Primary School.
Thank you for your interest in our school.
Education is a partnership between home and school and we place a great deal of emphasis on our partnership with parents. We believe that children learn best when home and school work together for their benefit. When your child starts school, it is not where your job ends and ours begins. It is where our job begins and yours continues!
Children coming into our school bring a wealth of knowledge and understanding about the world around them. It is our aim to build on these skills and promote a willingness and enthusiasm to learn more.
WORKING IN COLLABORATION WITH THRYBERGH FULLERTON C OF E and DALTON TRINITY CROFT C OF E ACADEMIES.
From Summer 2014 our school began working in a formal Collaboration with Thrybergh Fullerton Cof E and Trinity Croft C of E Academies. This is a result of our previous positive partnership working and to ensure that our schools have leadership capacity for the future.
All schools will continue with their mission to provide the highest
standards of education for their pupils within a Christian community.
All schools will retain their own identities and names.
All schools will have their own Governing Bodies.
The three schools will work in collaboration to address/share common priorities
and to provide effective continued professional development across the staff
teams. Our children will benefit from shared activities and wider opportunities.
A Collaborative Management Committee will meet once a term made up from
governors of each school with the Executive Head Teacher who will work
across all three schools, supporting the Leadership teams.
The Collaborative will endeavour to attract and retain high quality staff and will
enable training ideas and resources to be shared for the benefit of our
