Just a reminder that the latest edition of the school newsletter (November) was given out to pupils this week. If you have not received a copy please let Kelly know and we can make sure you get it. It’s full of news and dates for your diary…it’s going to be a busy few weeks until the end of term so please check the dates using the newsletter or Facebook page for upcoming events.
Pupils will return to school on Thursday 5th of September at 8.50am. We hope that you have all had a wonderful summer break.
Reception children will be in school until 12.30pm next week and will start full days from Monday 9th September.
The school office will be open on Wednesday 4th September between 9am and 1pm if anyone requires any items of uniform, there is limited stock available. As you can understand the first day back is really busy therefore there will be no uniform sold on Wednesday morning.
The cost of school meals is £10.25 per week (£2.05 per day). Please could you make sure that this is sent into school in a named envelope promptly each week. Payments can also be made via ParentPay. Children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 will receive Universal Free School meals which is government funded.
Please ensure that uniforms are labelled with pupils names. This will be very helpful for pupils and staff.
Breakfast club will run as normal next week starting at 8am, this is open to all children from Reception to Year 6 and is £1 per day which should be paid in full at the beginning of the week stating which days your child will be attending.
After School Clubs will resume from Monday 09th September.
Enjoy the rest of your break and we look forward to welcoming everyone back for the start of what will be a fantastic year for pupils and staff!
Our latest newsletter went home with pupils tonight (along with an information letter about Parent Pay). There are some important dates for your diary in the newsletter as well as lots of lovely news about what we have been up to this term. Please take the time to read the newsletter.

We have just updated our uniform section of the school website with our uniform price list. Please contact Kelly Jobes (Office Manager) should you wish to make an order.
Our current uniform items and their prices are as follows…
Today, your child will be bringing home a copy of two new documents-our new ‘Code of Conduct’ for parents and our ‘Anti-bullying’ guidance for parents. The full version of the anti bullying policy and behaviour policy can be found in the policy section of our website. Both documents have been agreed and adopted by our Governing Body and we would be grateful if you could take the time to read them. As always, thank you for your continued support.
Please see our October newsletter for important dates and information.
School reopens for a brand new term on Wednesday 5th September. We hope you have all had a wonderful summer break. If you haven’t already signed up for our new Class Dojo reward and communication system, it would be great to have as many parents and carers using it at the beginning of term as possible. If you have lost your log on pass code, you can ask your child’s new teacher for another copy.
See you all on Wednesday! Listen out for our brand new automated bell to start the school day.
Well done Jack Lowther, Skye Kay and Charlie Ashcroft for all placing highly (5th, 2nd and 4th respectively) in the County Athletics finals this afternoon. We are so proud of the three of you!
Pupils from Y6 took part in today’s PING (Peterlee International Group) event at Hutton Henry. Many schools from the Peterlee Partnership were represented in the event; each school chose a different country from the World Cup and created a table top presentation based on this country. Thornley focused on Egypt! Our Y6 girls had a fabulous afternoon looking at all the presentations and tasting lots of different foods from around the world!
