School Community

Thomson House is a growing school community.

We have the most amazing staff who are all passionately devoted to providing the best for our children and, as part of our learning community, strive to be the best practitioners that they can be, constantly reviewing and improving through the sharing of good practice and attending high quality CPD (Continuous Professional Development). Our teachers, teaching assistants and support staff are all highly qualified professionals who take the business of learning very seriously. They all model the school values of Curiosity, Kindness and Courage.

The parents and carers play a huge part in their children’s learning journey too – not only do they commit to spending time supporting academic progress at home, but also support the school in many other ways - going on school trips, volunteering in school, offering gardens for gardening club, fund-raising through FOTH (Friends Of Thomson House), sharing their skills in theme weeks, running enrichment clubs (drama and football), donating financially, and attending social events. We would not be as successful as we are without them!

The Thomson House School PTA, known as FOTH, do a remarkable job welcoming new parents, organising social events and fund-raising for the school. All parents and staff are part of FOTH and work together to make the school a vibrant, warm and welcoming place.

Our school caterers (ISS) have the children’s healthy eating programme at heart. They cook delicious hot lunches, fresh every day and cater for a number of children who have allergies or are unable to eat certain foodstuffs for a variety of reasons. School lunch at Thomson House is mandatory – the children and staff eat together at lunchtimes.

Continuing along the healthy vein, Fit For Sport provide our children with a level of physical education which is second to none. FFS also provide multi-sport enrichment clubs for the children to enjoy at lunchtime.

A number of external professionals come in to the school at lunchtimes to provide enrichment clubs for the children – Dance IT Team (Zumba for the children and staff); Young Yoga.

Our Governors are in school regularly, having termly meetings, but also visiting for learning walks, helping with recruitment interviews, attending social events and school meetings.
