Parents and the School  

At Thorpe Primary, we are committed to working in partnership with all our parents and carers and have a range of communication tools to enable us to do this effectively. 

  • We use the school website, Facebook and Twitter to share whole-school information, including dates for your diary, half termly learning overviews for each class and give general information about school.
  • We use email to send newsletters to parents and carers every Friday, and any other letters that need to be distributed to our whole school community.
  • We use our text messaging service to query absence, share news about assemblies or give general information and reminders.
