It has been brought to our attention that some parents are receiving texts from people saying they are from the School Nurse Team and asking for personal information to be verified.


School Nurses do not send text messages as their first contact with parents.

If you receive a text message requesting information about your child from anyone purporting to be a School Nurse, please DO NOT engage.

To check the validity of any request received, please contact the Essex Child and Family Wellbeing Service Single Point of Access:

Thriftwood College as part of Thriftwood Academy, provides education for a range of students with moderate learning difficulties, including those with autistic spectrum needs, between the ages of 14 - 19.

The College offers a range of Foundation Learning courses and provides, in a safe, structured yet stimulating environment, opportunities for students to develop independence and skills in order to become a fully integrated member of their community.

We aim to offer our students a continuing education which is individualised and appropriately matched to their learning needs. We wish to enable young people to develop the confidence and skills they need to move on to the next phase of their lives, whether it is to further education and training, employment or to work towards a happy, healthy and independent life.

If you are interested in pursuing a place for your son/daughter at Thriftwood College, or have any other College-related queries, please telephone the College on 01245 262779 or email college@thriftwoodschool.com
