Uniform

We pride ourselves on the appearance of our children. It is Thorp’s policy that all children should wear uniform and be fully equipped for PE.

 We would appreciate if you would observe the following guidelines.

Due to the size of our cloakrooms we request that children do not bring large bags or rucksacks to school but a Thorp logo reading book bag, or something similar in size, and small sports kit back with the child’s name on for their PE kit.

Mobile phones for children are prohibited in school unless there is an emergency contact requirement, which has been agreed with the school.

In such instances the phone must be left with the School Office at the start of the school day, and picked up at the end of the day.
