Preparing for School and Transition

Starting school is a milestone for both you and your child and as the 'big day' grows nearer, you both may feel excited and nervous in equal measures.
Preparing your child for their new life in school and teaching them the basic skills they need will help them have confidence when the start of term arrives.
The links below have useful ideas and activities to help with preparation and transition; however it is important to remember that every child is different and may not learn at the same pace.

Safeguarding Information for Parents

Keeping Children Safe in Education

This leaflet will help parents understand how we keep your children safe by informing you about:

    • How children can be harmed
    • What we (the school) must do to keep your child safe from harm
    • What you (the parent) must do to help your child be safe and enjoy school
    Prevent - Information for Parents
    The Prevent Strategy

    All schools (as well as other organisations) have a duty to safeguard children from radicalisation and extremism.
    This means schools have a responsibility to protect children from extremist and violent views, in the same way we protect them from drugs or gang violence.
    Importantly, we can provide a safe place for pupils to discuss these issues so that they better understand how to protect themselves.

    Ofsted Reports

    The school was inspected in March 2022. This was a full inspection and the school is pleased to have received an incredibly positive report.  The school has been rated as 'good' in all five inspection areas.  The inspectors found the pupils to be happy, safe and hardworking with good behaviour and positive attitudes to learning and the school.

    "Pupils and staff ‘believe and achieve together’ at this inclusive school".
    ."Pupils have positive attitudes to school. They work hard. Relationships between pupils and staff are warm and positive".

    2019 Standards Information for Thringstone Primary School

    The government will not publish KS2 school level data for the 2021 to 2022 academic year. They have archived data from the 2018 to 2019 academic year because they recognise that the data from that year may no longer reflect current performance.

    School Menu

    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, preferably via Parent Pay.  Any money sent into school should be in an envelope or purse clearly marked with the child’s name, class and amount enclosed. 

    Up to date information about the cost of school meals is available from the office.
    School meals run on a three weekly cycle, click to view our menus: week 1week 2 & week 3

    Packed Lunch

    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.

    School Leave of Absence Form

    You are urged to avoid booking a family holiday during term time. Following government guidelines, we can only grant leave for exceptional circumstances. Please note that an unauthorised leave of absence could result in a penalty notice being issued. 

    If your child has unauthorised leave of absence you may either be issued with a Penalty Notice of £120 per parent per child (discounted to £60 if paid within 21 days), or, your case could be referred by the Local Authority directly to the Magistrates' Court for the purposes of a criminal prosecution.

    Applications to the Headteacher for term time holiday will be considered individually using criteria as detailed in our attendance policy.

    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.
