Thorns Primary School

Safe - Happy - Learning



Dear Parent/carers
School Attendance
Thank you for bearing with us today. After looking at numbers we have finalised groups and staffing for children attending school. It will work as follows:
Bubble 1 - Reception and Year 1. These children will be based in the Reception classroom and will need to be dropped off and collected from the Reception gate.
Bubble 2 - Year 2 and Year 3. These children will be based in the Year 2 classroom and will need to be dropped off and collected from the usual Year 2 entrance.
Bubble 3 - Years 4, 5 and 6. These children will be based in the Year 5 classroom and will enter through the Year 5 classroom door.
All doors will open at 8.40am for the day to start at 8.45am; please use the usual gate.  All children will finish at 3.15pm and will need to be collected from the KS1 playground.
The one-way system for parents will remain and we ask that you wear face coverings and socially distance when dropping off and collecting your children.  Each bubble will have allocated familiar staff to support their learning.  Class teachers will be in school at designated times to support staff and children in school, alongside delivering the curriculum remotely to those at home.
Home Learning
Please support your children with their home learning and this week's will continue in the same format as we have used for self-isolation home learning.  From Monday 11th January we are making further improvements to assist you, this will include audio commentary and, where needed, bespoke content to support children's specific needs.
Your child's class teacher will be sending you an email today reminding you of expectations and providing instructions for completion of remote learning.  You can correspond with the class teacher via the email address they have used.
Free School Meals
Families in receipt of income-based free school meals will be contacted as soon as we have received clarification from the Local Authority on how we will be supplying these.  In the meantime, if your child is attending school can we ask that you send a packed lunch with them this week as we have no facility to provide meals.
Thank you for your continued support and co-operation.
Best wishes,
Mrs Jordan
