to St. Thomas’ C.E. (V.A.) Primary School
Choosing the right school for your child is so important as the primary years are a crucial stage in your child’s development. I am therefore delighted that you have visited our website so that I can introduce you to life at our school.
As parents you need to be confident that the school you choose will not only provide high levels of academic teaching and learning but will also care passionately about your child as an individual and nurture his or her emotional, social, physical, cultural and spiritual development. Here at St Thomas’ we feel we do just that- always striving to achieve high standards of academic learning but never losing sight of a child’s need to explore, to question, to laugh, to play and to express their imaginations and ideas and become confident, caring individuals ready to contribute to, and succeed in, an ever changing and often difficult world.
At the heart of all we do is our Christian ethos- our motto is ‘Learning for Life with Jesus’ which means we aim to follow His example and share his amazing teaching with the children as a personal guide for life. We are, of course, also an inclusive school, teaching children of all faiths and none and actively encourage our children to question and explore so that they can make informed choices as they grow and develop. We foster a family atmosphere of love and respect and are exceedingly proud of everybody who makes up our unique school family.
We hope to be able to welcome you and your child shortly.
Mr Simon Hall
Head of School
