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:

A learning journey ...

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.

Swimming

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.
