Welcome to Thornhill Primary School
It gives me great pleasure to write to you as the new Headteacher of Thornhill Primary School and to welcome you to what I am sure will be a very exciting year ahead.
As an expanding school, you will see changes to the school site, but I can assure you that I will lead this transition in a calm and positive way so that your child’s learning continues to be enriched and varied, enabling them to achieve their full potential.
Thornhill Primary School is a vibrant school where children are enthusiastic and motivated to achieve endless possibilities. The children are at the heart of every decision we make to ensure that they are happy, confident and that the opportunities that are provided for them are relevant to their needs both now and in the future.
Our vision for Thornhill is to be the very best we can and to provide a happy, friendly, safe and encouraging place where everyone feels welcomed and valued. Our school is a place where achievement is expected and is celebrated, a place where all members of the school community care about each other and are kind to each other; a place where behaviour is outstanding and where success of all kinds is noticed so that we can take pride in all the work we are doing.
We aim to cultivate in all our children their intellectual, emotional, social, moral and spiritual development enabling them to achieve their full potential and take their place as life-long learners in a globalised world. We are very lucky to have dedicated and supportive staff who work very hard to provide the best opportunities for all our pupils in a safe and happy school environment.
It is not possible for the school to achieve these aims without a strong partnership between home and school playing a vital role in the learning process. We have an ‘open door’ policy at our school and I look forward to working with you and ensuring that our partnership continues to be fulfilling and rewarding.
We look forward to getting to know you and we are confident that your child's time here with us will be enjoyable, successful and memorable.
Mrs Bernice Waite
