About Us

We welcome the opportunity to introduce you to our school in Gunthorpe. We are very proud of our children and their achievements. Here’s what the children say about their school:
“Our school is small so you get more attention – like when you put your hand up”
“Good sporting activities”
“Everyone is really friendly”
“The best thing about school is, the teachers, because they are kind”
“It’s a loving school”
And when asked to think of a slogan to advertise our school here is what they came up with:
“A good education for your generation”
“Educational, sensational!”
“Gunthorpe is the best and we never rest”

Principles For Learning

At Gunthorpe School we celebrate the strengths of every child and believe the child is at the centre of the learning.

  • Gunthorpe School is a school where everyone seeks to be a positive role model, communicating clear aims and expectations, giving constructive feedback and positive praise. There is a consistent approach to teaching good behaviour, through role play, circle time, PHSE lessons and general classroom practice.
  • We encourage children through valuing effort, achievement and progression. We will motivate children by making learning fun and inclusive. We promote a can do culture, by helping children to understand the progression of their own learning through self assessment and target settng, listening to their views and creating opportunities for success.
  • We develop routines to promote a sense of security, giving clear expectations/boundaries, providing a welcoming environment and caring atttude. We strive to give the children a sense of belonging by valuing their opinions, giving them ownership through mechanisms such as class briefing and the school council.
  • We set high expectations and give every learner confidence they can succeed by demonstrating a commitment to every learner’s success and engaging the active support of parents. We set clear and appropriate learning goals, making them relevant to the learner’s needs. -We promote a culture of learning to learn through developing the children’s ability to think systematically, manage information, learn from others and help others learn.
