Welcome to Throckley Primary School!
We are incredibly proud to be co-Head Teachers at such a vibrant and forward-thinking school where pupils, staff, governors, parents and the school community work together to secure the best outcomes for our children. We are committed to the highest standards of teaching and learning – achieved through a combination of challenge, adaptation, support, and encouragement – to ensure that all students fulfil their potential.
At Throckley Primary School, our curriculum is underpinned by evidence-informed practice. We have worked hard together to establish a shared pedagogy and we seek opportunities to further develop staff within the wider team, meaning that teaching and learning is of the highest quality. We are incredibly proud of our Personal Development Curriculum, which underpins life at Throckley Primary. We are committed to providing opportunities for our children to develop their sense of self; as well as their understanding of what it means to be a responsible citizen within their local community and beyond. Children at Throckley Primary broaden their horizons and thrive through well-planned opportunities to learn about their place in the world. Please take some time to read about our wider curriculum offer and our Thrive @ Throckley events on our website.
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 delighted to announce that our excellent results mean that we are ranked within the top 100 primary schools in the country (out of over 22,000) for primary performance at the end of Key Stage Two in 2023. This follows a consistent trend of Throckley Primary School pupils performing significantly above national average at Key Stage Two for a number of years. We are so proud of this achievement, and are committed to ensuring the best outcomes for our children going forward.
