Curriculum overview

At Marston Thorold's Charity CE Primary School, our curriculum is designed to recognise and build on children's prior learning whilst inspiring all pupils to reach their true potential within a broad and balanced curriculum.  Our curriculum has been designed for Marston Thorold's pupils linking directly to our Vision Statement. 

Our Vision Statement

True to the generous legacy of Sir John Thorold, together with our Christian Values, we strive to create a safe, inclusive and nurturing family where everyone can flourish and achieve their true potential. Faith informs and inspires all that we do, in our relationships with each other and the local and global community as caring custodians of our planet.  We aim to raise independent, resilient and caring individuals who aspire to excellence, developing creative abilities and building the foundations of a healthy mind and body.


'Rooted and Grounded in love' - Ephesians 3:17
