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:

Mid Essex 0300 247 0014 (option 2)

South Essex 0300 247 0013

Personal, Social, Health, Citizenship and Economic education (PSHCEe) at Thriftwood Academy

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 Sex and Relationships Education (SRE) and am on the Advisory Council of the PSHE Association. The Association  provides training and support for PSHE teachers, undertakes research and commissions for other organisations and lobbies the Government on behalf of PSHE.

If you have any issues or worries, please don't hesitate to contact me.
