The School Day

Diary Dates

Breakfast Club

Our Activity Breakfast Club runs every morning before school from 8 o'clock. Breakfast includes fruit juice, a choice of healthy cereal, yoghurt and toast.

 The children are fully supervised until the start of school. Children are able to use the ICT suite, play table tennis, use a variety of craft resources and play games.

The Cost is £2 per session which must be paid for on the day or in advance.

Fund Raising

If you would like to become involved – we would love to hear from you. We are all parents/carers with children at the school, who work together in arranging fund raising and fun events for the children, parents and school throughout the year.

Our meetings are friendly and informal.  It’s a great way to get to know other parents at the school and get involved in benefiting your child.

You don’t have to do everything or get involved with every event – we realise we all have other commitments too – but we find that by spreading the work between us and helping when we can, it’s a fun thing to do.

If you are interested in helping out or just finding out more, please contact the School Office, alternatively look out for notice of future meetings.

Everyone welcome.

Trips, Visits and Residentials

At Thringstone we really appreciate the value of learning outside the classroom and we aim to offer a good selection of experiences. All classes enjoy day trips and visits to support their topic work and learning and we have an established programme of residential visits for our children. 


Residentials We know how important these trips are in developing the children’s independence and their self-esteem, in widening their socials skills and in offering exciting new opportunities- making memories that will last a lifetime!

  Years 3 and 4

  In Years 3 and 4 the children are offered a 2 night/3 day residential at Beaumanor Hall in Woodhouse Eaves, Leicestershire.

Years 5 and 6

In Years 5 and 6 the children are offered an exciting four night/five day activity centre residential, to Aylmerton in Norfolk.

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, Librarians and Latest Purchases

Junior Road Safety Officers

Lily and Isaac

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.


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.

Latest Purchases

With money raised from our sponsored walk and Christmas Fair the school councillors chose to spend the money on wet play activities for their classrooms and help fund a whole school theatre trip to Birmingham Hippodrome.

Extra Curricular Activities

A number of lunchtime and after-school clubs will be starting this term and will run up to the end of term break (exceptions to this are detailed on the downloadable form).  The clubs involve hard work and commitment from the staff who run them and there is an expectation that if a child chooses to attend a specific club, then they make a commitment and attend each session.

Please indicate the club(s) your child would like to attend and return the form to school as soon as possible.  Some clubs have a restricted number of places available and will be issued on a first come, first served basis.

For clubs that run after-school, please inform us of how your child will go home.

For lunchtime clubs which require your child to change clothing, they will be able to obtain a lunchtime pass, allowing them an early lunch.

In addition to the activities listed members of staff run specific clubs aimed at certain groups of children and your child will get a separate letter for these clubs.

We also run a variety of lunchtime activities for children in Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 each day and give opportunities for all our younger pupils to take part if they would like to.
