School Day


Breakfast Club

Thorogate School Breakfast Club opens on school days at 8pm.

It is run by Mrs Horton, one of school's Higher Level Teaching Assistant and supported by other school staff as required. This ensures that the children are familiar with the staff and there is a smooth transition into school classes at 8:45.  

Breakfast Club can be accessed on a daily basis or on an ad hoc basis, which ever suites your circumstances. Please enquire at the school office for the current Breakfast Club session charge.

Information to parents

At the start of each term parents are provided with a summary of the learning that will take place that term. This will include information on how parents can support their children at home.  

During the year parents are always able to speak to teachers, either with or without appointments. There are two formal 'parent's evenings' and an additional meeting can be arranged to discuss pupil school reports if required.

In addition, we have 'parent drop ins' during the year. These are designated days where teachers will be available in their classrooms until 5pm for parents.
