Invisible - Please Ignore
The Daily Mile

Being healthy in body and in mind is so important to us! We believe that children should be as active as possible, so therefore every day all our children walk, jog or run a mile!

We started the Daily Mile back in October 2015 with the aim of increasing our children’s overall fitness levels and stamina: and it has worked! The impact has been amazing! Our children are fitter, have more staying power and we even do better when competing in sporting events.

Text and Email Services

We aim to ensure that home/school communication is top notch, with all our parents having access to up to date information.  We make excellent use of our Teachers2parents texting and email service which enables us to let you know important information at the click of a button. You are able to text school back, but please only do so if asked to by the school.

We need to keep mobile numbers up to date, so please visit the school office if you’ve got new contact details

The P.T.A is an AMAZINGLY hardworking group of parents and friends of Thurlstone Primary School. They work together to support the school in its fundraising endeavours and Enterprise Projects.

The P.T.A are also great at organising community based social events.

If you would like to get involved, contact Mrs Gibbins for more details.

There are regular meetings, all of which are advertised in the school’s newsletter, The Shuttle, which is emailed to parents.


Penistone for Sport or P4Sport is just fab! Founded here at Thurlstone by Mr Guy Foster and Mrs Gibbins, we provide a wide range of sporting activities and professional development for all our children, as well as all the other local primary schools.

Each term we provide a wide range of competitions for children from all year groups to participate in. Most are held up at Penistone Grammar school. There are opportunities for children to compete against other schools in sports such as football and netball, as well as get involved in resilience building events such as our very popular Get Mucky Event.

Mr Foster also provided excellent professional development so that all schools are able to provide the highest standard of Physical Education across their schools.
