It could be a few things. Start simple by checking the coolant level. Ensure all the hoses are getting nice and hot ( cold hoses could suggest an air lock or inefficient water pump ) Check the operation of the cooling fan by grounding the thermoswitch.
Check inside the oil filler cap for mayonaise which could indicate a blown head gasket (water in the oil) also check the coolant bottle for evidence of oil in the water.
Is your heater blowing hot or cold when the engine is warm?

What engine is it? I cant imagine the thermostat would be sealed. I have a 307 so mines quite a bit older. Let us know what engine it is but could well be the thermostat stuck

Stat is listed on a diagram here 308 Thermostat 1.6 THP PETROL 2007 - 2011 but anyone like GSF should have one in stock at a fraction of the dealers price
