Inclusion for All coffee morning

Thursday, 22 November 2018
Parents enjoyed attending the first Inclusion for All coffee morning today where guest speakers from the parent carer forum told us about the work they do across the city on behalf of parents of children with SEND.  They shared their newsletter and information about how to become a member.  See their website for further details:
We look forward to holding another coffee morning in the spring term. Look out for any dates in the school newsletters.  All parents are very welcome to come along to meet and chat with other parents of children with SEND.

Qualitas District Football League

Monday, 12 November 2018

St Thomas have recently been invited into the Qualitas District Football League. This is a league where we compete against 4 other schools from the Eckington / Dronfield area, playing in weekly fixtures. At the half way point of the season, St Thomas currently sit in 2nd place with 7 points having beaten Eckington Juniors (4-3), Unstone Juniors (7-2) and drawing against ridgeway (1-1), the only loss of the season coming against top of the table Marsh Lane which we narrowly lost 3-2. The top two teams from this league will go through to the North East Derbyshire finals where there will compete against the winners and runners up of the Tupton football leagues. Keep up the good work St Thomas.

KS1 Fundamentals/Multi-Sport Festival

Monday, 12 November 2018

Select children from Year 1 and 2 attended two KS1 Fundamentals/Multi-Sport Festival’s, at both Graves Leisure centre and at Dronfield Henry Fanshawe School. They took part in lots of different activities that worked on fundamental skills such as agility, balance, coordination and reactions. It was also a great opportunity for the children to work with a variety of pupils from other schools, encouraging them to communicate and help each other through challenging tasks. All of the children had a fantastic time learning and practicing new skills with everyone taking part with a smile on their face.

Paperless Office

Wednesday, 24 October 2018

Dear parent/carer, As part of our constant drive to improve communication and support the environment, we are delighted to announce that from the beginning of next half-term, we will become a 'paperless office'. 

This means that all letters providing information about school events, consent forms for trips and events, and other reminders, will be sent via parentmail.  Consent for trips will now be able to be given through ParentPay.

We have calculated that across the course of a school year, this approach will save around 19500 pieces of paper. Furthermore, this development is in line with feedback from parents and carers about the efficiency of letters and reply slips being sent home in paper form in book bags.  

It is vitally important that you ensure you are fully set up on both ParentPay and Parentmail, and should you require any support with this, please do not hesitate to contact the school office.

Many thanks for your support with this next step in the school's development. 

 Many Thanks
