St Thomas’ C of E Aided Primary School Vision Statement

At St Thomas’ our aim is for children to be happy, confident, thoughtful learners who take ownership of their learning, are proud of their achievements and are well prepared to be contributing members of society ready for life in the modern world. With the children helping to design a creative, stimulating and challenging curriculum, suited to the children’s needs, they will become independent thinkers and collaborative workers.

Their learning will be meaningful, challenging and have purpose and equip each child with the skills they need for lifelong learning. We value risk and challenge, respect and empathy, reflection and responsibility.  

St Thomas’ Primary School is a small rural school situated in the historic Cinque Port of Winchelsea, with about 140 children on roll aged 4+ to 11 years.

The school’s small size allows a family feeling, where children are known and valued. Our staff  work hard to make their teaching engaging and relevant, so children at St Thomas’ are keen and quick to learn. The children’s learning and well being is at the heart of all we do.

As a Church of England School our Christian values and attitudes underpin the school community.

The local history and architecture dating from medieval times is all round us. A thriving local artistic community including artists, sculptors, painters, writers, film makers and actors live and work in the community .

Our Winchelsea Curriculum is based around whole school themes that are used to inspire the children and make learning exciting. We cover the skills of the National Curriculum using three different themes each year. The school has access to fantastic resources in the local beach and harbour, nature reserve and Wealden countryside.

We make use of all these resources to make the curriculum as stimulating and relevant to the children as possible. Trips out for practical work as well as local experts working in school are part of everyday life at St Thomas’ School.
