Headteacher’s Welcome

A very warm welcome to the Thomas Reade website.

Head Teacher Thomas Reade Primary School

My name is John Serle and I am lucky to have one of the best jobs in the world; being the Headteacher of Thomas Reade Primary School.

Thomas Reade is a medium size primary school and we are very proud of our reputation as a warm, welcoming family school.

Thomas Reade Primary School has been designated as an official Pupil Premium Reviewer as a result of our  status as a National Support School and Headteacher being a National Leader of Education.  This means schools can call upon our support to review their systems for spending Pupil Premium and to increase its impact on outcomes for children.

We have high expectations of our children and set challenging targets for them. We encourage every child to reach their full potential and recognise that every child is special and has their own contribution to make. The staff at Thomas Reade are dedicated, hardworking and experienced. We provide a calm and caring atmosphere in school and we foster a hardworking ethos based on an enjoyment of learning. We expect a great deal from our children and they do not disappoint us.

We have a very positive partnership with our parents and community and we have a very supportive School Association, School Council and Governing Body.

Our school can be summed up through its initials:

T is for talented teachers
R is for right and responsibilities
P is for potential and hopefully perfect pupils
S is for sharing success
