Next Tuesday we say good bye to Mrs Wood (Nursery Nurse in Y1) who is retiring after 19 years at Thorpe. We would like to say a huge thank you to her for all her hard work and support over the years. I am sure that you will join us in wishing her all the best for the future.

School Photos

These will take place on Thursday 22nd October. Unfortunately, due to the current restrictions the photographer will only be able to do individual photos.


Children have had transition time in their new class today. From 19th October, children will be in their new class permanently. Times for the school days were sent out by text last week but we have listed them below as a reminder:

Reception – 8.45am-2.45pm

Year 1 – 9.00am – 3.00pm

Year 2 – 9.15am – 3.15pm

Year 3 – 8.50am-2.50pm

Year 4 – 9.00am-3.00pm

Year 5 – 9.10am-3.10pm

Year 6 – 8.40am – 2.40pm

We need to continue to stagger drop off and pick up times to ensure we follow the DfE and LA’s guidance. Thank you for your support and understanding with these changes.

As you will see the gaps between KS2 times are smaller. Please can we remind parents and carers to continue to follow social distancing rules when dropping off and collecting your child/children, and ensure that they do not mix with children from other bubbles when waiting to come into school.
