Dear Parents, Carers and CommunityThis week the children of Chestnut Class competed in their own triathlon with Mr Gough, an experienced triathlete himself. The children were delighted to receive medals for their efforts and a wonderful time was had by all.
Clubs will begin on week beginning 19 September. Please see the office for details
We kindly ask that parents adhere to our School Uniform Policy and thank you for your support on this matter. We have a selection of 'preloved' uniform available, please ask in the office.

We are always looking for volunteers to come and help out at school. Maybe you are interested in helping children read or you know someone who would benefit from some school experience. Maybe you have an occasional hour or would like to run a club. If so please come and see us!

HOT SCHOOL MEALS
As parents you can access the deadline dates in several ways to ensure that you do not miss the deadline and that your child has the meal offered to them by the school. The deadline date is usually in the last week of every month but is open for ordering for weeks before this.
1. Go to our website and look under Parents - Parents information- Hot Lunches
Here is the link for this page
On this page you will find the link to Thornford School deadlines for the next three months.
2. Go to the Thornford Primary School website directly and see the deadline dates, link below:
See our newsletter and deadline on our Facebook Group which echoes what is published on the school website. If you would like to join our Facebook Group, please see Mrs McVeigh in the office. Our website has a parent's calendar with Hot Meals deadlines published. We regret that we cannot order meals that miss the deadline as Thornford will not provide meals after the date. We urge you to order before the deadline and we wish our children to enjoy the meals offered to them. Thank you for your co-operation and support on this matter.
SAFEGUARDING OUR CHILDREN IS TOP PRIORITY
1. Entrance Gate The entrance gate is shut from 9.00 until 3.00 pm.
