Our school vision

We aim to create a warm, stimulating and challenging atmosphere where all children and adults will feel valued and welcomed. Everyone contributes creatively to the life of the school, striving together for improvements. School and home co-operate to foster the development of the children, not only through the curriculum but also through personal and social dimensions.

Curriculum Studies

In their curriculum studies, we endeavour to develop children who:

  • have enquiring minds;
  • are motivated, aspirational and become increasingly independent learners, taking responsibility for their own learning and actions;
  • are aware of their own strengths and weaknesses;
  • are reflective, resilient and demonstrate perseverance;
  • are happy and confident enough to ask for help, and able to collaborate with others;
  • set themselves personal challenges and use their initiative;
  • strive for high achievements;
  • take pride in the achievement of others.

Personal and Social Development

We aim to provide a happy, secure environment where each child:

  • develops academically, physically, emotionally and aesthetically;
  • has an opportunity to foster and nurture their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development;
  • is aware of our changing world, its diversity of people and the individual contribution made by each and every person;
  • understands how to stay safe and be healthy;
  • knows how to enjoy and achieve and understands we learn from making mistakes;
  • is encouraged to be reflective, respectful and thoughtful;
  • is respectful of other’s individuality;
  • recognises and respects beliefs of other religions and cultures;
  • understands that trust and honesty are built on mutual respect;
  • takes responsibility for their immediate surroundings and adopts a caring attitude for the wider environment;
  • makes a positive contribution to the school, the local and wider community;
  • prepares for and has an appreciation of life in modern Britain.

Our school prayer

We wrote a school prayer to reflect our Vision and we love to share it together in assembly.

I believe in you, yes I do!

God believes in us all,

Here at Thorndon School! (clap, clap, clap)
