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:

Thriftwood is proud to be the "Champion" School for the Citizenship Foundation 'Get Set for Community Action' Programme in Essex. One of one-hundred Champion Schools in the UK.

We work closely with other partner-schools to run and host community projects. Get Set for Community Action aims to use the Olympic and Paralympic Values to encourage young people to reach out to their wider communities and discuss their needs, inspiring projects that make a real difference. This is a brand new programme, which aims to strengthen relationships between young people and their local communities through the Olympic Values (friendship, excellence and respect) and the Paralympic Values (courage, determination, equality and inspiration).
