Welcome to our new website, we are in the process of editing and updating its pages. Thank you for your cooperation with this and we will inform you as soon as all the changes are finalised.
Can we please remind those dropping off and collecting children from the Early Years building to ensure they wait behind the correct gate until it is opened by a member of staff. If you are collecting children from main school before Nursery, please ensure you walk around the building to the Nursery entrance. Please also be aware if you need to speak to a member of staff, could we please ask you to wait until all the children have been dismissed.
Thank you so much for your understanding.
- Our Awesome Foursome characters will now become part of our curriculum, as these are the key characteristics for achieving potential!

Anti-Bullying and Hate Crimes
Following on from the work done in school during Anti-Bullying week, the children of the JLT have been working on a child friendly leaflet. The leaflet is to explain to children the positive behaviours we would expect to see in school. It covers all forms of prejudice and promotes positive language and actions. A copy of the leaflet is attached to this week’s newsletter and is available on our website.
We have recently had further incidents of children talking about playing computer games with a classification of 18+. Games such as 'Grand Theft Auto' and 'Call of Duty' have a very violent and graphic content which is unsuitable and inappropriate for primary school age children. Children under this age are not permitted to buy these games from stores so are only likely to be playing them when an adult has purchased them for them. The rating classification of these games are there to help parents decide what is suitable for them to purchase for their children to play.
Welcome to Thorpe Primary School
We would like to extend a very warm welcome to all visitors to this site. Whether you are an existing parent or potentially a new parent, we hope that you find our website informative, useful and a reflection of our wonderful school.
We are committed to ensuring that all children leave our school with the skills they require to make a positive contribution to society. Our staff team are positive, friendly and committed to our children, demonstrating a real enthusiasm for learning. Visitors to our school frequently comment on the warm, welcoming atmosphere, purposeful environment and how fantastic our children are.
We are a dedicated team with high aspirations to become an outstanding school. Our School Development Plan is available to view on this website. Our constant self- evaluation drives us forward; we are always seeking ways to develop our practice to ensure that all of our children have the very best chances in our care. This has led to a significant improvement in outcomes in the past two years, meaning our school is now performing at its best ever level.
We recognise the crucial importance of a three-way partnership between school, children and parents/carers and endeavour to build positive relationships to ensure that all of our children reach their full potential.
