The Department for Education has amended National regulations to school attendance.
From September 2013 headteachers will no longer be permitted to grant any leave of absence during term time unless there are exceptional circumstances. This means requests for a holiday to be taken during term time will not be authorised.
If you need to take your child out of school for any reason you will need to fill in a Leave of Absence form stating the reason for absence. All requests will receive a reply advising whether the absence is authorised or not.

We are proud to be using our working kitchen to provide our school dinners. The school kitchen is run by Leicestershire Food Support Services.
All children in Foundation Stage, Year 1 and Year 2 are eligible for free school meals under the Universal Free School Meals Programme.
School meals should be paid for in advance on Monday morning, with money sent to school in an envelope or purse clearly marked with the child’s name and class.
Up to date information about the cost of school meals is available from the office.
Your child may bring a packed lunch together with a fruit type squash or milk drink in a screw top container if they wish. Children are not permitted to bring drinks in cans or glass bottles. They should not bring fizzy drinks to school. Water is always available.
Many children bring a snack for break time. We encourage children to bring this in a container with their name on it. We prefer it if children do not bring sweets.Through the National Fruit Scheme, children in Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 receive a piece of fresh fruit each day and do not need to bring another snack to school.
Chilled water is available for the children at all times. We do ask the children to bring a small plastic bottle to school which can be filled during the day.
The school was inspected in June 2016. This was a short inspection and the inspector concluded that
the school continues to be good and has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection.
"Pupils' attitudes to their learning are good. They listen respectfully to adults and work hard in lessons. They also cooperate well in class, and play happily and safely together at lunchtime and breaktimes. Pupils greatly enjoy themselves outdoors, using the spacious grounds and school field, with many physical activities available to help them to stay fit and healthy."

It is our belief that children should enjoy their school life, find satisfaction in their achievements and realise their potential to the full. The School endeavours to create tolerant individuals; we will aim to help your child respect and appreciate others, their feelings, views and capabilities. We will encourage your child to be confident and excited about meeting new challenges.
During your child’s life at our school we feel it is very important that home and school work closely together. Through a strong partnership we can share our expectations, develop understanding and celebrate your child’s successes.
Schools produce and receive a great deal of documentation to help them in their effective and efficient running and we are happy to share this with you. Click on the links if you would like to see copies of Ofsted reports on the school, our policies, schemes of work or publications from the DfE.

The pupil premium was introduced in April 2011 and is allocated to schools to work with pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years (known as 'Ever 6 FSM').
Schools also receive funding for children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months, and children of service personnel.
The Pupil Premium is additional funding given to schools so that they can support their disadvantaged pupils and close the attainment gap between them and their peers.

The government is providing £150 million per annum for the academic years 2013/14 and 2014/15 to provide substantial new funding for primary school sport. The funding is jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, with the money going directly to primary schools. The PE and sport premium is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer all their pupils.
At Thringstone Primary School, we are strongly committed to PE. This is evident in the wide range of activities in and out of school that we offer, including being involved in competitive sports.
We recognise the importance of PE to the health and well-being of our children and the impact the PE curriculum and extra-curricular activities can have on our attitudes, confidence and academic achievement of all children.

Each child is unique and has individual needs. They learn at
different rates and reach milestones at different times and this process
continues throughout lifelong learning.
In every class at school there will be children who
may at some time during their school years have special educational
needs (SEN) identified. These learning difficulties could be short or
Schools work in partnership with parents to monitor
their child’s development and, where there are concerns, take steps to
help them to learn more effectively to maximise inclusion and
opportunity for all children.
