We aim at Thurlbear Primary School to provide a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum which will promote the moral, spiritual, cultural, mental and physical development of our pupils, thus enabling them to lead happy and useful lives, both now and in the future.

Our School Vision is to:
create an irresistible Church School; be a beacon for learning experiences which lead to great life achievements. Our curriculum aims to be:

Broad - by introducing children to all areas of learning and knowledge, concepts, skills and attitudes.
Balanced – each area of learning and experience receives appropriate attention in relation to the others. It is matched to pupils` developing abilities and attitudes.
Progressive – work provided at each stage reflects and builds on what has been learnt previously.
Preparative – preparing the children for the wider world by covering issues such as citizenship, personal and social education, health, environmental education, equal opportunities and multi-cultural education.
