Pupil Premium

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.

PE and Sports Premium

In March 2013, the Government announced that it would provide additional funding to primary schools to support the improvement of provision of PE and sport.  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.

School Houses

When children join Thringstone they become a member of a ‘House’. The names for the houses were chosen by the children and are named after trees which can be found in the school grounds. The theme was selected in a competition and reflected our proximity to the National Forest. The school houses are ‘Ash’, ‘Birch’, ‘Oak’, and ‘Willow’.

Members of staff award house points during the week for good work, manners and behaviour.

The points are collected at the end of each week by the House Captains and displayed in the school hall. The House Cup is awarded weekly during Achievement Assembly.

Junior Road Safety Officers and Librarians

Junior Road Safety Officers


The junior road safety officers are elected each year from year 6 and run competitions for the school throughout the year. They also work with our younger children and help them become safer pedestrians.


Librarians


Children help to keep our library a clean and tidy place to be. When Key Stage One come to the library they help them with scanning their books and return them to the correct place.
