Collecting your children from school

At Thornton we take Safeguarding very seriously - in fact it is our number 1 priority.
When collecting your child at home time, you need to ensure that if you are not collecting your child yourself then you have nominated two people who you authorise to collect your child on your behalf.  This way teachers can ensure that they are sending children home with a trusted person.
We recognise that sometimes you may need to send someone to collect your child for whom we have not had your authority and therefore, on that day, you must call the school in good time to let us know who will be coming and give us a one-time password for use on that day.  Teachers will then be informed that it is okay to send your child home with that person, provided they give us the correct password.
