School Vision
To make Thorpe Lea Primary the school of choice in this community by achieving a strong reputation based on: innovative and impactful learning strategies, excellent leadership and consistently strong results. 

School Mission
To give every child the opportunity to enjoy and achieve fully in all areas, whilst developing a set of core life values, an awareness of their responsibilities as citizens and an appreciation of the awesome wonders of the wider world.

At Thorpe Lea Primary School our goal is to develop caring and responsible young citizens for the future, who learn how to develop their independence and take on shared responsibility for their own learning and progress. Our pupils learn to protect, and to make a contribution to, the wonderful world which we all share.They are encouraged to achieve their full potential in all they do, to enjoy life and to celebrate our school values. Most of our pupils spend eight years with us, starting in our purpose built Nursery, and progressing through the school to Year 6. All our pupils from the very youngest know, demonstrate and uphold our school values both in school life and in the wider community.

Our values are at the heart of everything we do:

  • High Expectations: in our behaviour, our school work, our homework and our everything we do.
  • Respect: for each other, for property, for nature and for the wider world we share.
  • Teamwork: our strong belief in working together to achieve the best possible result, sharing ideas and strengths.
  • Diversity: a profound belief that we treat everyone as our equal, celebrating difference and the strengths it brings.
  • Nurturing Care: the knowledge that our school offers us a safe and supportive environment on which to thrive and progress.
  • Curiosity: to encourage our pupils to ask questions, research and discover for themselves, and to help determine their own learning journey
  • Creativity: to develop our own our creativity and our ability to solve problems by applying our knowledge.

About Us

Welcome to Thorpe Lea Primary School and Nursery where we nurture and develop ‘happy, safe children who achieve their potential.’

The staff and governors of Thorpe Lea are proud of our caring pupils who thrive in the school's spacious facilities and have access to an excellent education plus stimulating and exciting educational and cultural opportunities. Our goal is to maximise the achievement and enjoyment of all, developing positive and caring, contributing young citizens for the future.

We are passionate about our school and our wider community; the school offers a vibrant learning environment with a highly experienced and skilled teaching team. All staff and governors work collaboratively to inspire the self-confidence to work hard and achieve the highest academic standards and sustained personal growth. We believe in the development of the whole child, encouraging our pupils to develop their social, academic, sporting cultural and musical talents concurrently via a strong extra-curricular programme of clubs.

School values are important to us and we develop these from the early years so that everyone feels part of our school community. Our values are: High Expectations, Respect, Teamwork, Diversity, Nurturing Care, Creativity and Curiosity. We believe firmly in the development of each pupil’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural understanding as they develop a wide appreciation of the wonders of the wider world. We are part of the International School Programme and are delighted to host over sixteen nationalities, giving us great cultural diversity and opportunities; three of our Year 5 pupils will participate in a residential Chinese Immersion Week in August.
