Thoresby Primary School
Thoresby Street, HU5 3RG, UK Kingston upon Hull

Our vision for Thoresby is to create a school community which enables pupils to attain their own highest levels of achievement, making the fullest use of their potential and opportunities. They will be equipped to make informed choices and decisions on a sound basis of knowledge, skills, and understanding, avoiding prejudice. Pupils will then be able to move confidently into the next phase of their education and meet the challenges of the new millennium.

Our ethos and curriculum has been developed to enable pupils to:

  • use language effectively and imaginatively in speaking, reading and writing.
  • gain a good basis of mathematical, scientific and technical knowledge , acquiring and being able to apply essential skills.
  • develop lively, questioning minds, able to argue rationally and fairly, exercising tolerance and empathy.
  • develop an awareness and understanding of their environment.
  • promote their physical development and enjoyment of physical activity.
  • acquire a positive self-image and a confident personality.

The school follows the National Curriculum for the core and foundation subjects and religious education. The school is not affiliated with a particular religious denomination. There may be rare instances when parents wish to withdraw their children from Collective Worship. If this is requested the pupils are allowed to withdraw at that point in assemblies when the act of worship takes place.

Policy Documents

See examples of our policy documents.

The newly designated 'Foundation Stage' covers the early years of schooling delivered in the Nursery and Reception classes. It is based on the 6 areas of learning; social, physical, linguistic, mathematical, creative and knowledge and understanding of the world. This acknowledgement of the particular needs of early years' education is a welcome one and relieves the Reception class of the pressure to begin the formal National Curriculum. Collaboration between Nursery and Reception will be an important feature of the Foundation Stage. 

On entry to Year 1 teachers plan to cover the National Curriculum programmes of study in English, Mathematics, Science, Information and Communication Technology, Geography, History, Design and Technology, Physical Education, Music, Art, and, in line with the local agreed syllabus, Religious Education.

In addition to these subjects a course in Personal, Social and Health Education is followed throughout the school which also covers Sex Education and Drug Education. The aim is to help with the development of self-esteem, assertiveness and the ability to make informed choices in relation to questions of 'right or wrong'.
The Governing Body approves the teaching of Sex Education in school, and it forms a part of the PSHE programme. Parents of pupils in Y5 are invited to view the videos and materials to be used in these specific lessons, before they are shown to the children.

Thoresby enjoys a good reputation in its local area and cultivates contacts with local businesses , senior schools and colleges, which request placements for their students on a regular basis. We have regular visits to our local churches and library.

We have undertaken very beneficial projects with the Albert Avenue Pools, the Hull Daily Mail , Hull College Department of Building, and UK Waste/Groundworks. A link with the BP classroom is being developed to help provide for the Y6 I.T./Science curriculum. 

The local community police officer is a regular visitor to school, and supplies resources for the History curriculum . The Fire Safety Officers visit annually with their Smokey Joe presentation to warn our pupils of the dangers of fire and how to deal with emergencies involving fire. We are currently part of the IMPS project (Injury Minimisation in Primary Schools) based at Hull Royal Infirmary.

The LEA Road Safety section supports pupils learning in this important area throughout the school. The School Nurse and Health Education Officer regularly support pupil's learning about Health Issues. In addition Year 5 received coaching tuition from Guy Martinson, Hull RUFC.

The Kids Club - 01482 470540 or email:

A group of parents formed a management committee to set up a 'Kids' Club' for the care of children before and after school. This is run as an independent business, having received grants from the TEC, and other bodies. Further details can also be obtained from the school office. The scheme has now been successfully in operation since January 1999, and opens for some holiday periods. You can visit their website at
