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.

At Thriftwood, from the Foundation Curriculum through to Key Stage 4 and external accreditation, every pupil is taught, encouraged and challenged to achieve his or her potential.
The Curriculum offers learning opportunities which are rich and varied and focus on the positive, celebrating and rewarding success and progress.
Small classes, staff with specialist SEN skills and experience, excellent facilities and a focus on the needs of the individual ensure that every pupil receives the time and attention needed to develop confidence and the desire to learn.
We produce a termly summary of the Curriculum for each class which details the range of learning activities that pupils will experience and also provides many ideas for you as support for your child's progress.
Our Curriculum Summaries for the Autumn Term 2020 are below:-
Due to the current situation with COVID 19, our pupils are NOT attending swimming lessons. Once the lockdown is lifted and we are given the 'go ahead' from Essex County Council, we hope to continue with weekly sessions as before.
Pupils within Key Stage 2 will have the opportunity to swim weekly for part or all of the calendar year at school. During these sessions, the focus is on gaining confidence in the water, following adult instructions, developing strokes and working towards achieving 25 m unaided swimming. We also use this opportunity to promote independence, self-help skills and social communication.
Pupils within Key stage 3 have the opportunity to further refine these skills when swimming with the class in year 8.
