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!
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!
We are so proud of all of the pupils hard work last half term. Each year group focused on a different artist or different art technique. We hope you get the chance to look at them around school before the end of term.
Please find below a copy of our April newsletter with key dates and events.

Hon Nick Gibb congratulating us on our KS2 SATS results which put us in the top 2% of 2% of schools in terms of progress between Key Stage 1 and the end of Key Stage 2. Thank you to our staff for all their hard work, our pupils for being such shiny stars and to our supportive parents who help to work with us to make our school as good as it can be!
A big well done to our pupils and their family members who came into school to decorate Easter eggs last Friday.
It was lovely to see the school so busy and full of smiling faces.
