Welcome to our school

Welcome to our school website.  We are delighted that you have come here to find out more about us.

Excellent relationships and a welcoming, happy atmosphere are found everywhere in the school. Pupils feel safe. 

Thornton in Craven CP School is a small rural primary school where pupils are encouraged to show a caring attitude towards each other.  We are situated in the BD23 postcode which was recently voted as one of the best places in Britain to live.  We also believe it is one of the best places in which to work and learn.

We are a school that strives to provide a safe, secure, inclusive caring environment where pupils, staff and visitors feel comfortable and where vulnerable groups are identified and receive targeted provision to ensure their presence, participation and achievement.

Our school encourages pupils to develop academically and socially to the best of their ability by setting suitable learning challenges and responding to their diverse learning needs.

The staff endeavour to work together to provide opportunities for pupils to express themselves in a variety of ways throughout all curricular and non-curricular areas; overcoming barriers to learning and through using assessment for individuals and groups of pupils.

The school vision is that of a team made up of pupils, teachers, teaching assistants, parents, governors, the LA and the local community working together for success. The school has achieved the Inclusion Quality Mark and aspires to progressively higher levels of this award.

At Thornton-in-Craven we aim, in partnership with parents and guardians, to provide a high quality learning environment to help all children realise their full potential, intellectually, physically and socially.

If you would like to know more information about our school, please do come and see us.
