Thornton in Craven CP School is a small rural primary school where pupils are encouraged to show a caring attitude towards each other.
It is 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.
The 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 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.
