At Thornaby C of E Primary School, we celebrate and value every child’s individual strengths. We provide a curriculum full of opportunities for children with different skills, interests and talents in which to thrive and experience success. We provide children with a secure and caring environment, and do everything we possibly can to help them to flourish as a unique individual.


Our Special Educational Needs and/or Disability co-ordinator is Mrs Susan Smith
