Hello everyone,

We have enjoyed some lovely sunshine this week as well as snow, hail, rain and freezing temperatures—typical spring days in the UK! Thank you for ensuring that your child is well dressed for school—please take time to read our separate Uniform leaflet today as it will inform you of how to buy additional items through school.

Have a great weekend everyone! Mrs Simmons, Headteacher

Sainsbury’s Vouchers



We are now collecting Sainsbury’s School Vouchers. If you are collecting these vouchers yourselves, then please hand them into the reception’s office. This will help us to acquire more sports’ equipment for our school.

Dinner Money Please can we remind all parents that dinner money has now increased to £10.75 per week. Lots of parents are still only paying £10.50. Please can you ensure that you pay the correct

amount next week to avoid getting into debt.


We will be including children’s pictures in their reports this year. The

pictures will only be used in the reports and will not be used

electronically or on the website. If, however, you have any objection to

us using your child’s picture for report then please do not hesitate to

speak to Mrs Simmons.

Text Service

A text service will now be used to keep parents up to date with any

notifications and important news. Please can you therefore ensure

that we have your most up to date mobile number.

Friends of Thornton—the next Parents’ Committee meeting will be held on the 9th

May at 9am. We look forward to seeing you there.

Stay Safe Traffic Assembly

"On Tuesday 19th of April a visitor from the Birmingham City Council Traffic Team came to our school and talked

about road safety around our area. She told us about how important road safety is and we also found out that more accidents occur with children my age (9 years old and over) than toddlers. This may be as older children may be more interested in phones and technology unlike younger children, who always hold their parents’ hand when crossing the road, as well as taking more risks. We were given examples of places where to cross such as the traffic lights and zebra and pelican crossings. Also the visitor told us about how to never ever let your parents’ park on the yellow zigzags by schools, as it may be endangering someone’s life. Overall, it is essential to look both ways when crossing the roads and to be safe on the roads.

If we all be vigilant and sensible on the roads we can save lives and somebody else’s life." Ismail Rahman 5TR
