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.

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!
