Chair of Governors: Mr Amjid Ali

Head Teacher: Cathy Grace - Acting

Job Start Date: beginning of the autumn term 2021

The vacancy arises upon the previous headteacher’s appointment at another post at the end of the summer term 2020. Thornton Primary School is a mixed 4 form-entry school for pupils aged 7-11 years, which currently has 570 pupils on roll. Thornton Primary School is a large junior school with a cohort of 570 pupils (4 form entry).  Each September, 120 children join Year 3 in Thornton from a feeder infant school (Sladefield Infant School).  There are currently four classes in Year 3 and five classes in each of Years 4 to 6 as Thornton historically had a single form entry Key Stage 1.  Due to site restrictions, a school restructure began in 2016 to remove Key Stage 1 and this is continuing through to 2023 when the school will become a four-form entry junior school.  Around 35.8% of pupils are currently eligible for Pupil Premium: 57.3% have English as an additional language and 16.9% have Special Educational Needs.  This has remained fairly static over the last 6 years.  The school’s intake is now almost completely from minority ethnic groups with a high proportion (75%) of Pakistani heritage. Within school there are over 38 ethnic groups represented and a similar number of languages spoken (32).  The successful candidate will be expected to take up the appointment at the beginning of the Autumn Term 2021. Informal contact with the school is most welcome.
