Throston Primary School

A Flying Start to Success

Values and Ethos

When parents and carers bring children to Throston Primary School it is the beginning of a partnership in their education.  The Home School Agreement puts into words the schools aims and values and sets down the responsibilities of parents and teachers and our expectations of children. We believe it is an agreement which you will feel comfortable to sign as it underpins our determination to provide the very best for the children. The Mission Statement of the School is:


“To be the best school”


Our school motto is “A Flying Start to Success”. This is what we hope to achieve for all of our children.


The School Aims:

  • To educate every child to achieve his/her full potential as an individual;

  • To prepare every child for life both within and outside of school;

  • To foster a love of learning;

  • To encourage everyone to be caring, thoughtful and considerate to all;

  • To show care and concern towards the local and distant environments.


The School Rules:

  1. Be kind;

  2. Be respectful;

  3. Try your best;

  4. Be truthful;

  • ensure that if their child has a packed lunch, that it is healthy and contains no sweets or chocolate;
