Head Teacher's Welcome
Welcome to Throckley Primary School! I am delighted and proud to be Head Teacher at such a fun and vibrant school where pupils, staff, governors, parents and the school community work extremely hard and have high expectations of one another. We are committed to the highest standards of teaching and learning – achieved through a combination of challenge, support, encouragement and praise – to ensure that all students fulfill their potential.
At Throckley Primary you will find a welcoming and purposeful environment, with relationships built on mutual respect. Our supportive pastoral systems help pupils to achieve beyond their expectations and develop a strong sense of responsibility for themselves, their peers and the wider world. Throckley Primary pupils develop skills for lifelong learning. Achievement and a 'can do' attitude are at the heart of our philosophy; we support this through nurturing pupils’ creativity, encouraging independent thinking and learning and showing that mistakes can be a learning opportunity.
We are a forward-thinking school which has experienced rapid improvement. Through our work as a strategic partner for the Tyne Valley Teaching School Alliance and our research and development projects with leading universities, we aim to inspire all of our partners to work with us as an outstanding school in an outstanding learning community.
