Tornedale is a community school maintained by the Local Authority (Doncaster MBC).  At Tornedale, we work together as a team to provide a welcoming, stimulating, caring environment.  We value each individual and the contribution they make to the school community.  We believe in mutual respect and support for each other, and have high expectations of work and behaviour.  We encourage the healthy development of social and emotional skills and a positive attitude to work. 

With the support of parents and the local community, we are committed to the development of happy, independent, enquiring children, who are morally and socially responsible, well prepared to move on to their continuing education, and potentially able to make the most of their lives in the outside world.
