Message from Mrs Northwood

Welcome to our School

In Toll Bar we believe we are a 'Community Primary' school and we intend these pages to reflect some of the things that happen in and around our school with the help of the community that we serve ...... plus all sorts of other interesting bits and pieces!

We believe Toll Bar Primary School to be a safe, caring environment, where in partnership with you we can try to achieve your child's full potential.

Our aim in the school is to educate the whole child, and through the curriculum will provide for the learning of skills and knowledge, a child should be given every opportunity to realise their aspirations and express their feelings. The whole curriculum conforms to the requirements of the National Curriculum. We are committed to safeguarding children and promote the welfare of every child in our school. Children respond to the interest and appreciation which we both show in their education, and I hope that our time together will be enjoyable, valued and successful.

At Toll Bar Primary School, we want all children and adults to have:

  • The right to learn
  • The right to be safe and happy
  • The right to be treated with respect

At Toll Bar Primary School children have the right to
Learn in an encouraging environment
Feel Safe and cared for in School
Achieve the best they can
Enjoy time in school
Know that any adult in school can be approached
for help, advice or guidance.

love learning
we want everyone to enjoy learning and to achieve their best.

inclusive
we want everyone who uses our school to feel involved and included

supportive
we want everyone involved with our school to feel supported.

green/eco
we want our school to look and be an eco/greener place.

healthy
we want our school to be a healthy place for a our minds and our bodies.


At Toll Bar Primary we seek to support and encourage our children to become independent learners, successful writers, mathematicians, readers, artists, scientists, historians and much much more. To do this they must seek to develop the core behaviours that make for successful and skilled learners. These behaviours and characteristics are to be found in our Learning Monsters, who can be found throughout our school
