Our Ethos

A school is an exciting place to be and every school provides a unique experience. At Thackley Primary School, we want to provide the best possible experience for your child and for everybody who walks through our door. We have many aims within school but at the heart of everything, we hold close three key aims as our vision for our pupils.

These are:

High Standards in Everything We Do
Skills for Life
Happy Memories

We believe in high standards for all members of our school community. Our expectations apply to academic and sporting achievements, manners, behaviour, attitudes and in everything we do. 
We support our children to develop skills for life throughout their time at Thackley.  This includes developing the ability to be resilient and independent and to have perseverance, patience and compassion.  We want our children to leave Thackley as responsible citizens, independent, creative thinkers and to be kind to others.   It also encompasses our new Skills for Life curriculum which aims to teach a wide range of skills which prepare children for life in the real world.  This includes practical skills such as tying shoelaces, basic first aid, setting a table and making a bed as well as how to be brave, deal with big emotions and to have ambitions.
Above all we want our children to leave Thackley with happy memories. If children are happy, feel safe and enjoy school, they learn at a far faster pace and enjoy contributing to their own development and success. We strive to make your child's years at primary school happy.  We build positive, supportive relationships with our children and we enhance our curriculum with exciting trips, residentials and experiences which they will remember forever.
