Thurleigh Primary School is a popular small rural school set in a lovely location in the village of Thurleigh. The school is within easy reach of Bedford and Rushden and attracts pupils from a variety of localities.
Our modern facilities including a large purpose built Hall, combine well with the original Victorian building and we are particularly fortunate in having a large playing field and wooded area.
The school is maintained by the Local Authority and caters for the age range of 3-11 years. We can provide wrap around care from 8 am until 5.30pm (5.00pm on Fridays), as required.
The EYFS is made up of Nursery and Reception children aged from 3-5 years. In the morning all children work together within a free-flow environment supported by a qualified teacher and teaching assistants. During the afternoon nursery and reception children are taught separately with the reception children being taught by the class teacher. The nursery is able to accommodate children from the first term after their 3rd birthday.
The Staff and Governors endeavour to provide the best education possible for each individual child’s needs and abilities.
We believe that the school is more than just the curriculum that we provide for your child. We ensure that our children have a safe, secure and happy time in school helping them to grow morally, spiritually, physically as well as academically. The school enjoys good support from the community with regular assemblies delivered by visits the local Vicar.
There is an active group of parents who run the ‘Friends of Thurleigh’ committee who play an important part in the life of the school, both fund raising and developing the links with other parents.
We are a Values Federation basing all our shared experiences, practices and behaviour systems firmly on a foundation of shared and understood values. Our values are Excellence, Respect, Equality, Determination, Courage and Friendship. These are woven throughout our schools in themes such as our school rules 'Be Ready, Respectful and Safe'. Values are visited regularly in our assemblies and are celebrated with certificates in our weekly Celebration Assemblies.
Our ethos - 'Enjoyment: Enrichment: Excellence: Equality' is central in all that we do.
