'Thomlinson Junior School is a happy place where pupils thrive. The school's curriculum is well designed and ambitious. It enables pupils to succeed. Classroom learning is routinely enhanced by interesting and exciting experiences. These range from lunchtime music clubs to residential trips. On trips, pupils have slept in yurts, visited palaces and even acted in the role of a spy learning about survival in the Lake District.
Pupils relish the opportunities to take on roles of responsibility . They work as school councillors, peer supporters and mini police officers. Working maturely in their roles of responsibility they help each other to get the most out of school . Pupils told me about their caring teachers. They talked about the positive relationships that teachers have with their pupils. Pupils welcome teachers’ high expectations of them. They recognise that this help s them to achieve well.
Pupils’ behaviour is good. The atmosphere in school is friendly and purposeful. Pupils told me that they feel safe in school. They told me that bad behaviour and bullying is rare. However, when it does happen they are confident that teachers will take swift action to stop it and to help prevent it reoccurring.
