On behalf of the children, staff and governors, I would like to welcome you to Thorpe Primary School.
Our school is one form entry and is situated in the heart of Idle village, North of Bradford in West Yorkshire.
At Thorpe we aim to provide the highest quality of education, so that children achieve to the very best of their ability as well as helping all our children become happy, confident and successful individuals.
We strive to create a happy, friendly, safe and encouraging place where everyone feels welcome and valued; where children are inspired to learn; a place where achievement is expected and is celebrated; a place where all members of the school community care about each other and are kind to each other; a place where behaviour is good and where success of all kinds is noticed so we can take pride in all that we do.
We are very lucky to have an extremely dedicated and supportive staff team who work very hard to provide the best opportunities for all our pupils in a safe and happy school environment. We aim to build the skills, knowledge and positive attitudes necessary to help all our pupils become responsible, respectful and tolerant citizens of the future.
One of our strengths is the strong partnership which exists between all members of the school community, pupils, staff, parents, governors and the local community.
Our school was judged Good by Ofsted in June 2015.
‘Pupils are friendly and polite….the work pupils are asked to do is not only challenging but also really enthuses pupils so that they enjoy their learning.’
The good quality teaching, good progress made by our children and the good provision in place for pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development were also recognised.
It is impossible to convey the friendly, caring atmosphere of the school and the commitment and enthusiasm of the staff. The only way is to see it for yourself! So if you would like to visit, require any additional information or have any queries, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
Mrs Debbie Cooksey
