Come and see our fantastic crafts tonight at the Thorpe Christmas Festival. The school will be open after the children have sung and Father Christmas has been down the high street on his sleigh 🎄🎅🏻


We're excited! It's the Thorpe Festival this Friday!


We are thrilled to be able to share with you that in our recent Ofsted inspection we were judged to be a 'Good' school.


We were all deeply saddened to learn of the death of Her Majesty The Queen yesterday. As an inspiration to so many and the head of the Church of England, she was very special to our school community. We will be paying tribute to her over the coming days and offer our sincere condolences to the Royal Family.

We are really excited about Harwich Sing wanting to run a new club at Rolph. We loved the session with Clare last week but this is not open just to children at Rolph - all are welcome.

If you enjoy singing and would like to join a great new club with lots of performance opportunities, please contact Clare directly. She has extended the deadline as we still have some places still available.

All children aged from Reception to Year 6 welcome! If you can't make the taster session but would like to join after Easter, please let Clare know as this can also be arranged.


We are proud to announce that we have been awarded The Woodland Trust Bronze Award. This is a result of planting trees, year 5 'tree dressing' during forest school and the recycling that we do at Rolph in collaboration with the RSA.

Well done Team Rolph 💙🌳

Thank you to Rolph Primary School for inviting me along to help at their tree planting day.

The Tree Council are running an initiative called ‘Young Tree Champions’ they gave the school 150 trees to plant. Every pupil came and helped plant a tree and had a go on the ninja slack line! The Woodland Pond Warriors welcomed me into their forest area, where they hold their forest school lessons. We were happy to donate watering cans for the ongoing care of this wooded area and biscuits to keep the hard working children going. Thank you to Mrs Sweeney for a great day, not only making a difference to our environment but also the well-being of the pupils and teachers too. At one with nature!

Children across the school took part in Active Essex’s Walk and Talk in aid of Children’s Mental Health Week. They walked multiple laps of the playground in pairs asking each other questions and simply having an opportunity to just talk. An important part of our children’s personal development and enjoyed being able to take part to highlight this cause

We are pleased to share with you the re-design of our school logo. It was very important to us to keep the overall look of the original school logo and what it represents in terms of our school and village history. However we wanted to make the logo more eye-catching and incorporate the significance of being a Church of England School.

We are thrilled with the final design.
