Our School Values are based upon a set of school rules which are drawn up with the children; these rules are regularly revisited and reviewed. They are at the heart of our behavioural system, which is reviewed on a yearly basis. We encourage children to gain ownership of what is right and wrong within their learning environment.
Being part of a richly multicultural county means we value teaching our children empathy, tolerance and above all, a kind approach to their peers. We welcome the children's suggestions for improvements in our school, through sharing our values in assemblies and class on a regular basis. Thythorn takes great pride in the comments and appreciation we get from visitors and parents, who recognise the values within the behaviour of the children.
At Thythorn Field we operate an open door policy. If you have any concerns regarding your child and/or their education, please do not hesitate to contact the school and we will endeavour to guide you in the matter.
