Thriftwood School & College are asking for the support and understanding of everyone in order to help minimise the risk of COVID-19.
Thriftwood continues to take guidance from Public Health England. Following our move into Tier 4 we are no longer accepting visitors to either School or College site.
We apologise for not being able to give you our usual warm welcome, but we must take the current situation very seriously and look after the welfare of our pupils and staff.

Personal, Social, Health, Citizenship and Economic education (PSHCEe) at Thriftwood Academy
UPDATE SEPTEMBER 2020 – please see the document – ‘Understanding Relationships, Sex and Health Education at your child’s secondary school: a guide for parents’ for the changes that mean RSE and Health are now statutory parts of the PSHCEe curriculum
Central to all we do at Thriftwood is PSHCEe. The skills and information our children learn in these sessions are really ‘lessons for life’. PSHCEe’s mission is to enable all our children to have the skills, information and self-confidence to live their lives to the full whatever their needs.
I have started a list of helpful (and reliable) websites on this page, but it is not exhaustive. Please let me know if you need information or advice on topics that these websites do not cover.
I am a trained teacher with a specialism in Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) and am a member of the Insights Group of the PSHE Association. The Association is the national association for PSHE and provides training and support for PSHE teachers, undertakes research and commissions for other organisations and lobbies the Government on behalf of PSHE.
