What support will there be for my child’s overall well-being?
We are an inclusive school, we welcome and celebrate diversity. All staff appreciates the importance of children having high self-esteem in order to achieve positive well-being. Here at Thornley Primary we commit to our own values and ensure pupils are able to develop in a caring, fair and understanding environment.

The school has a policy regarding the administration and managing of medicines on the school site. Parents need to contact the school to discuss this and if agreed complete a form: ‘Parental Agreement for School to Administer Medicines’. This may include medicines for life threatening conditions or required for a long term illness such as asthma and diabetes. In such cases a ‘Care Plan’ may be put in place according to the directions of the School Nurse.
How are parents and carers involved in the school? How can I be involved?
It is our aim that the school works in close partnership with parents and maintains regular and purposeful communications between school and home. Communication tools include:
- The school website.
- School newsletters, informing parents of dates, events and items of school news
- A school text messaging service.
- School productions or after school clubs.
- Helping your child with homework.
- Helping with the school fundraising activities.
