Description of the school

This average sized primary school serves a culturally and linguistically diverse community. Two thirds of pupils use English as an additional language, and one third of these speak Arabic as their first language. Over half of the pupils are entitled to free school meals. The proportion of pupils who experience learning difficulties and/or disabilities is slightly below the national average. These include issues relating to social and emotional problems, and specific learning difficulties. Children start Nursery at the age of three and a half. Most transfer into the adjoining Reception class after one year in the Nursery. It is believed that the school is named after Thomas Jones, born in North Carolina in 1806. A passionate critic of slavery, Thomas Jones obtained a rudimentary education, and used his skills to emancipate his own children.
