We currently have 237 Children, 187 full time and 50 part time children on roll. This school year we have nine classes; one Foundation Stage 1, three Foundation Stage 2, two Year 1 and three Year 2.
From the summer of 2014 our site benefited from the building of another new classroom to accommodate the increased numbers within our catchment area and our school admissions number, which will be 75 in September.
The school offers an excellent learning environment for children aged 3 to 7 years old. Although our school site is quite small compared to most, we really do strive to ensure that our provision is the best possible for our children.
We are pleased to have our ‘Children’s Centre’ on site as this enables us to build a positive relationship right from the time that the new baby is developing up to the age of 7 years. Transition into Foundation 1 is smooth and successful because we work very closely together with ‘Tiny Explorers Preschool’, which is on our school site and ‘Thurcroft Preschool’.
We work equally closely with Thurcroft JuniorAcademy so that the children are confident and keen to transfer to Year 3 and are already familiar with their surroundings. The Junior Academy staff visit and work closely with us so that they really know about our children. We firmly believe that our aim to undertake collaborative working will enable us to provide the best possible learning experiences for all children.
