Welcome to St Thomas More Primary School's website - I hope you find it useful.
Our school is a two-form entry Catholic primary school in the Stivichall area of Coventry. Although we are large, we like to think of ourselves as an extension of the children's families and we pride ourselves on being very active within the local community. We know that parents and families are children's first and most important educators and welcome your input to our school life.
At St Thomas More, Gospel values underpin everything we do and the children work within a culture of respect for one another and for themselves. Spiritual development, both of children and staff members, are central to our mission and we were judged to be "outstanding" in our most recent RE inspection. Children and staff members are encouraged to think of themselves as global citizens and custodians of the environment and our school motto is "learn and grow as God's holy people."
Academic achievement is high on our agenda and our aim is that every child will reach his or her full potential. We are innovative in our delivery of a broad and balanced curriculum and encourage the children to adopt a "growth mind set", constantly striving to be better in everything they do.
I am new to the post of headteacher at St Thomas More but have held a number of leadership posts in London, both at headteacher and local authority advisory level. I have recently relocated with my family to the West Midlands so that our children can spend more time with their grandparents. I am very excited that the governors have chosen me to continue the good work of Mrs Wilson and the capable, committed staff team and lead St Thomas More on the next stage of its journey to excellence.
I will be available in the playground before school most days. Please feel free to come and say "hello."
Headteacher, September 2016
