We currently have 254 Children, 215 full time and 39 part time children on roll. This school year we have nine classes; one Foundation Stage 1, three Foundation Stage 2, two Year 1 , two Year 2 and one Year 1/2 classes.
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 is currently 75.
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.
At Thurcroft Infant School we know that the most important part of our Outstanding school are the pupils. We hope that, should you visit us, you feel this too.
We are pleased to have our ‘Children & Family 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. We also work alongside ‘Foundations @ Thurcroft’ and ‘Thurcroft Early years’.
We work equally closely with Thurcroft Junior Academy 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 in Year 2. We firmly believe that our aim to undertake collaborative working will enable us to provide the best possible learning experiences for all children.
We welcome the help of parents and grandparents so please speak to your child’s class teacher if you would like to offer your help in school.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us should you wish to come and visit our school. We really do look forward to working with you.
