Lion Class


Welcome to Lion Class. We are delighted to be working with your child on the next exciting year in their school lives.

Our aim is to ensure we make every day count, work together to be ‘Truthful, Persevere and Aspire’, with God’s guidance and we hope that your child has a wonderful year with us here in Lion Class.

We are a very approachable team and are happy to have a quick chat with you when you drop off or collect your child from school. For any longer queries or needs please arrange a more appropriate time. We are aware that many Year 5 and 6 pupils travel to and from school independently so you can also get in touch with the class teacher using the email address lions@thurstonprimary.net, we will endeavour to get back to you within 48 hours during the working week. For all non-learning matters (e.g. payments, clubs, pick-up arrangements), or anything urgent please contact admin@thurstonprimary.net
