 Biennial aims

We will create a seamless journey through Thriftwood School and College.

We will use a therapeutic and holistic nurturing approach to meet the needs of all our young people.

We will work with the local community to increase understanding and acceptance of SEND.

How does Thriftwood ensure pupil safety and encourage good behaviour?

We are committed to providing a safe and positive environment for pupils. This means we have high expectations and a clear and consistent approach to managing behaviour.

  • Enterprise
  • Nurture
  • Respect
