Thriftwood School & College are asking for the support and understanding of our visitors in helping us minimise the risk of COVID-19.
Thriftwood continues to take guidance from Public Health England. Taking this into account, we are now limiting access to the site to essential visitors only.
If your visit to Thriftwood is an essential one, we would nevertheless ask that you refrain from visiting if:
Along with all members of the Thriftwood community, any visitors to the School or College should wash their hands with soap and water before leaving home and once they arrive on site. Gel hand sanitiser will also be available on arrival and throughout your visit. You will need to wear a face covering throughout your visit to our school.
For the avoidance of potential embarrassment, we would also like to advise you that Thriftwood is currently operating a ‘no handshake’ policy for all members of its community.
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.
If you have any questions, please contact the member of staff you were due to visit.
Please click HERE to visit the news page for more information.
Please find below a suggested timetable and website links to some work activities for students to complete if they are now staying at home or in self-isolation. We would recommend to try to encourage your child to do some work each day. When students return to College they should bring any work with them to share with their tutor so we can see what they have been up to!
Please see Thriftwood's YouTube page to see various videos and messages from our staff!
