Welcome back to our "Good' School!
A warm welcome back to what promises to be an exciting new school year. As you will know by now, Ofsted “Good” rating shows the effort and hard work that the team here at Thorplands Primary School have contributed.
Children at Thorplands are exceptional and are a joy to teach. They are a credit to you all.
We would like to thank all parents, guardians and carers for your support through a year of change and for your continued support going forward.
In other exciting news – we now have a brand new dance studio in school which will provide more opportunities for children and we will continue to go above and beyond for Thorplands community.
We look forward to a positive and exciting journey that we know this year will bring. We can also dismiss any rumours and state that the school will not be closing down!! The Education Fellowship continue to support us effectively. Please come and talk to me if you have any concerns regarding Thorplands Primary School.
We will continue to strive to be an outstanding provision.
Wow! What a Family I have Joined!
WOW!! What a fantastic time the school has had since September!! When I was warmly welcomed as the new Principal, I felt I was joining a family; not only at the school and nursery, but also into the community. The children are a credit to their teachers and their families. The behaviour within Thorplands has improved as has the standard of teaching. The children deserve the very best education and I am driving forward to create a curriculum that the children can experience and enjoy. We have just started our journey to becoming the best that we can be, for our children and their futures.
It’s now that time of year where we all spend some extra quality time with our family. Family can come in many different forms: family of friends, work colleagues, blended families and relatives. Family isn’t always blood. It’s the people in your life who want you in theirs. The ones that accept you for who you are. The ones who would do anything to see you smile, and who love you no matter what. We must take care of our families wherever we find them.
I hope you all have a wonderful break with your family and I look forward to seeing you all again in the New Year.
