Our School Day
Our start time for all year groups is 8.40am (children should not arrive before 8.30am). The school is unable to supervise or take responsibility for students arriving before this time. Upon arrival in school, children should walk round to their designated area of the playground.
Although responsibility for children travelling to and from school lies with the parents, School Crossing Patrols are in place morning and afternoon on the High Street, outside the school, and in West Street, close to the High Street junction to help ensure the safety of students on their way to Thomlinson Junior School.
Being a school in a rural town, Thomlinson Junior School has a number of children attending from outlying areas. School buses are provided for these students at a minimal fee. Under certain circumstances this transport is available free of charge. Further information on charge exemptions is obtainable from:
