Headteacher's Update

We are currently planning our programme of Educational Visits for the next academic year. School trips are an important part of our Education Offer. They excite and motivate pupils about their learning and provide opportunities for learning that are not always possible in the classroom. We are also aware that the costs of such visits are rising. This is primarily due to the increasing price of coach hire. This is putting an increasing burden on both school and family budgets.

Now seems like a good opportunity to get your views on our Education Visits programme and how you feel it could be improved. I ask that all families take a few minutes to complete this short survey. This information will help us to get it right for our children next year.

Parent Prayer Group

The following is a brief summary of “School Prayers” held on Friday 24th May from Fiona Ashworth:


"Alice, Lando and I met in the Library of St Thomas’ School for coffee, chat and prayer.


We began with a short reflection on ‘Footsteps’; thinking about those who have inspired us, the qualities we admire in them, and pondering who may be following in our footsteps.


This week, we prayed specifically for: 

·         all the children who have tests at the moment – SATs, Phonics, Multiplication etc.

·         all those going on school trips; especially for the safety of Year 6 pupils who are going to Calshot for their Residential Trip.

·         and we also prayed for the health and well-being of all the school staff.

Thank you to Miss Knapp who made us feel so welcome. 


We will meet again on Friday the 28th June at 9am - please do join us if you would like to! You can send an email to or simply pop in on the day. 


Lastly, if there is anything related to school life, that you would like us to pray for (publicly or confidentially) please email us at


“For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.”

Matthew 18:20 NIV"


Phonics Books - can you please have a look at home to see if you have any of our books, especially the Phonics Decodable Books. These should be returned to school every week and then your child will be issued with a new one. These books have a sticker on the reverse of the book which say 'Floppy Phonics'. Unfortunately if your child does not return the book they will not be issued with a new one.

Please do not send food containing nuts, sesame or kiwi fruit to school due to children with allergies on site.

Please can you ensure that ALL school uniform is clearly named. Missing items cannot be reunited unless they are named. Thank you.

Our last INSET day for this year will take place on Friday 14th June. Next year's INSET dates will be published before half term.
