Our vision for Thorpepark

Our school is a welcoming, happy and caring place where we work closely with parents and the community to provide the best education for all children.

We work hard to ensure that our children enjoy learning, achieve their potential and appreciate the differences that make us all unique.

  • To encourage all members of the school community to aim high in all aspects of school life particularly attainment, attendance and behaviour.

  • To provide a creative curriculum, which develops the moral, spiritual, cultural and social understanding of each child.

  • To promote thoughtful behaviour through our positive ethos and support for all pupils and families.

  • To instill, within a safe environment, the desire to learn.

  • To employ highly skilled staff that are committed in achieving the best outcomes for every child.

  • To promote life skills so children are confident to take appropriate risks, welcome challenges in the school, wider community and the world around us.
