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.

The Pupil Premium is designed to ensure that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it the most. The funding is allocated to Local Authorities and schools with pupils from Reception to Year 11 who are eligible for Free School Meals, are looked after or have parents currently in the Armed Forces.
We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for Free School Meals. We reserve the right to allocate Pupil Premium Funding to support any pupil or groups of pupils which the school has identified as needing additional support to achieve improved outcomes in learning and their well-being.
All our work through the Pupil Premium will be aimed at accelerating progress in learning and personal skills, confidence, interaction, independence and emotional development.
The range of provision could include:
Pupil attainment and progress is monitored regularly by teachers and the Leadership Team; this will identify specific individual need.
Once identified and when additional support has been provided, the overall effectiveness and impact will be evaluated.
This will include:
An annual statement on how Pupil Premium Funding has been used will be placed on the school's website and can be accessed by opening the attachment below.
Details of the most recent PE and School Sports Funding Plan can also be found below.
Please note that these details are updated at the beginning of each school year.
