On behalf of Glenthorne Community Primary School, I am delighted to welcome you to our school website. I am very proud to share with you an insight into our vibrant and engaging learning environment, which provides a range of exciting learning opportunities and helps to build children’s necessary life-long skills.
Glenthorne Community Primary School follows our moto: ‘Living to Learn, Learning for Life’. We strongly believe in providing an environment in which children are encouraged to be independent. We build resilience through our children having a ‘can do’ attitude and encourage all pupils to strive to be the best they can be. We also believe in providing opportunities for pupils which encourage them to take responsibility, lead and co-work with others.
Glenthorne Community Primary School staff focus upon establishing positive relationships with pupils and have high expectations of what children can achieve. We adopt a ‘Teach to the Top’ approach which allows children of all abilities to be stretched and challenged, as well as supported to meet their needs.
We believe in providing our children with opportunities which develop the ‘whole child’ as well as their academic achievements. As a school, we provide our pupils with inspiration days to engage their learning, a range of sporting activities, a wide variety of after school clubs, specialist days (such as Art and Science days) and musical productions.
As a community school, we are always keen to further develop links with the local area and welcome parents, grandparents, carers and visitors into our school to view the fabulous learning we offer to our pupils.
