Welcome back to everyone after half term, and we are back to one of the busier half terms, on the lead up to Christmas.

We have several events coming up over the next half term, including the Ladies’ Evening, the Christmas Nativity and the Carol Concert, led by our Junior children, and the Dance Festival.

Mr Eaton


We are hosting a Ladies’ Evening on Tuesday 11th November, at which there will be a Noosa fashion show, stalls for jewellery including jewellery, candles, cakes and handbags and many other gift ideas.  Clarins and Tropics will also be in attendance, and the jazz singer Simply Jack will also be entertaining.

Ladies can also treat themselves to beauty and therapy treatments at vastly reduced prices!

Tickets are available from school, at £7.50 each, and this also includes a choice of fresh poached salmon or quiches with salad, and a glass of bubbly! And free gift bag!


We will be joining other schools and community groups from Thornton for the annual parade to the war memorial, meeting at Thornton Library car park at 10.30am on Sunday 9th November.

On Wednesday 12th November, the classrooms will be open for parents to see their child’s work, from 3pm onwards.


The children via the School Council would like to support Children In Need and CAFOD this year, and in order to do this, we have agreed to raise funds for the charity by letting children come to school in a heroes costume, in exchange for a minimum donation of £2.

Thank you in advance for your support!


Morrisons have resumed their ‘Let’s Grow’ campaign, to encourage schools to collect vouchers for gardening equipment.  If you shop in Morrisons, please ask for the vouchers, as we are collecting in school.


Please could all parents refrain from using the school car park when collecting children from clubs that finish at 4.30pm, as we do not have the space for all cars, and to protect the safety of parents and children.


We encourage children to bring water bottles into school to have in the classroom, to keep children hydrated and improve concentration.  Thank you to all the parents who support us with this, however, please can we ensure that it is water in such bottles, not cordial, juice or flavoured water.  Water can be refilled at school.
