Can we ask all parents/carers to please be considerate of the residents who live in the village. When parking to collect or drop off your children, please be aware that double parking on Albion Rd outside the school causes problems for residents and large vehicles trying to get through the village.
From some of the Christmas fair funds, we have purchased a class set of headphones. We will also be adding books to our library. Thank-you again for your support in FOTPS fundraising activities
Please bring any clothes, paired shoes, belts etc in sealed bags into the school office for the Starlight Fund before next Friday 31st January. Remember the funds we get from your help go to support terminally ill children and we get a small percentage into the FOTPs funds which, in turn, help our children as you can see from the above post.
We are currently looking for reading volunteers to come in and listen to children read. If you are interested and can commit to 2 hours each week, please contact the office.
If your child is diagnosed with a medical condition, such as asthma, during the school year please come into the office so that we can update your data collection form and our medical register and ensure that an inhaler is in school.

School closure due to Adverse Weather
It is once again the time of year when we enter a period of what is likely to be unsettled and adverse weather.
Adverse weather conditions cause all of us problems and the impact on running a school can be significant. Critical factors taken into account when deciding to remain open or to close include road conditions, safety of the site and staff/pupil ratios.
It may well be the case that an occurrence of adverse weather leads to an early morning decision whether to close the school. The responsibility for school closure rests with the Local Authority (LA) for maintained schools such as Thorpe. However, because of the variation in geography and climate throughout the district, it is normal for the Headteacher to make an individual school closure decision. This decision will be based on a health and safety assessment (both for members of staff and pupils); the LA and the Headteacher will keep the school open if at all possible. Only in exceptional circumstances will the school be closed. If weather conditions are such that the school makes a decision to close before the normal school day starts, then instruction will be given to publish notification between 7.00am and 7.30am in the following ways:
- Notification of closure through a text sent via ParentMail
- An update via Twitter – @ThorpeBradford
- An update on the Bradford Schools Online website – https://bso.bradford.gov.uk/Schools/Home.aspx
- A school closure message on local radio stations
If weather conditions are such that a decision to close is taken during normal school hours, then all parents/carers who have provided us with mobile telephone contact details will be informed by text. Some staff will remain in school to supervise pupils until they are able to get home. As you can appreciate, we attempt to ensure we can deal effectively with weather conditions and circumstances arising from this that are beyond our control and I trust you feel reassured that we will do all we can
