Dear Parents, Carers and Community
Year Six gave three fantastic performances of their end of year play 'An Inspector Calls'. Well done to all. Thanks also to Mrs Lane and Mrs Halford for putting this together. Today we gave out several certificates in the last of our certificate assemblies for the year. Well done to all the children, we are so proud of their achievements in and out of school.
As we approach the end of the year we would like to invite you to our church service on Thursday morning at 9.30 am…all welcome. The parents and grandparents of Willow Class are also invited to our Leavers Assembly which will commence at 2 pm in the hall. Bring tissues!
We are delighted to have appointed Miss Eckersall who will be the teacher for Owl Class next year. Miss Eckersall and Miss Barratt are new staff to the school, therefore they will be available to informally meet with parents after school on Tuesday. We will have a 'Meet the Teacher' after school session Tuesday 19th September when all teachers of all classes will be available to meet with parents at 3.30pm that day.
Have a good weekend.

HOT SCHOOL MEALS
As parents you can access the deadline dates in several ways to ensure that you do not miss the deadline and that your child has the meal offered to them by the school. The deadline date is usually in the last week of every month but is open for ordering for weeks before this.
1. Go to our website and look under Parents - Parents information- Hot Lunches
Here is the link for this page
On this page you will find the link to Thornford School deadlines for the next three months.
2. Go to the Thornford Primary School website directly and see the deadline dates, link below:
See our newsletter and deadline on our Facebook Group which echoes what is published on the school website. If you would like to join our Facebook Group, please see Moira Lyons Montgomery in the office. Our website has a parent's calendar with Hot Meals deadlines published. We regret that we cannot order meals that miss the deadline as Thornford will not provide meals after the date. We urge you to order before the deadline and we wish our children to enjoy the meals offered to them. Thank you for your co-operation and support on this matter.
