Dear Parents and Carers,
It has been another busy week at Thornton with Year 6 and Year 2 SATs, Year 5 visiting Twycross Zoo and Year 6 having a great time at Ward End Park.
Your children’s safety is our number one priority and we are growing increasingly concerned that there will be a serious accident during school pick up and drop off times. A number of parents are stopping their vehicles in the middle of St Agatha’s and Thornton Roads and children are walking out into oncoming traffic. We have had two near misses this week alone with a child’s life being put in danger by their own parent’s lack of supervision and a pupil has been injured by a car one evening after school this week.
As a school we have contacted our local police and asked them to increase patrols around the school, please support us in ensuring YOUR children are safe at all times by parking responsibly, away from the school gates or walking to school as well as not rushing and putting yours and other children’s lives at risk.
Thank you for your support, Mrs Easthope– Assistant Head

Royal Wedding Celebrations!
To celebrate the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, we marked the occasion with a ‘Red, White and Blue’ day. The school held it’s first ever Royal Wedding BBQ which was a huge success! - Lots of Beef Burgers, Chicken Kebabs, Vegetarian Sausages and delicious royal wedding cupcakes. YUM! Luckily the weather behaved itself and we were treated to lots of sunshine.
Well done to all the pupils who participated in the hat competition. The judges were very impressed with the fantastic hat creations that were worn by the pupils.

A big thank you to parents for their support throughout SATs week. We would also like to say a huge congratulations to the Year 6 children for their hard work and determination, not only during this week, but throughout the whole year. Hopefully the results will mirror their efforts.
As the sun is now making a regular appearance, it is important to stay safe in the sun just as much as enjoying it!
Below are some tips to stay safe in the sun, as recommended by the NHS.
- Spend time in the shade between 11am and 3pm (peak time for when the sun is strongest in the UK)
- Cover up with suitable clothing and sunglasses
- Use at least factor 30 sunscreen
- Drink plenty of fluids to keep hydrated and prevent dehydration!
We advise parents to send children with sunscreen on and a sun hat for when playing outside in the sun!
