Welcome from the School Office

All the information you should require is held on the website, however should you require a paper copy of anything please contact the school office on the number below. If you are interested in applying for a place for your child at Thorp Primary please see our Admissions information.

If you require any information on registering your child for Nursery, giving medicines in school, holiday request forms, free school meals, pupil premium grant or general enquiries including making an appointment to see a member of staff, please telephone Mrs Tindall on 0161 823 0520.

Please make sure that we have an up to date mobile number for yourselves and other contacts that we can send urgent or important text messages to during the school day. This is in the unlikely event that we have to notify the families of the whole school at the same time, for example in the instance of an unexpected school closure. Please note that in the first instance we send out a blanket text, and if there has not been a response after a period of time we will then phone individual children’s emergency contacts. We will ensure that your children are safe at all times.

Please can you also ensure that we have email addresses of any family members that would like general school information sent out to them, such as the newsletters or class specific letters. (for example school trips).

Thorp Primary school is a cashless school and so all monies need to be paid via the ParentPay App. For information about this system please contact us at the number above.

School dinner money is £2.70 per day (£13.50 per week) and collected via ParentPay. We please ask that school dinners are paid for at least every week in advance.

During term time, the office is open between 8.30am and 3.30pm Monday to Friday.
