On behalf of the Governors, the staff, the pupils and myself it gives me great pleasure, as Headteacher, to welcome you to the Grove Lea Primary School website.
The school website is a very important tool in celebrating the amazing activities that take place at Grove Lea Primary. It is also a vital tool in communicating with parents, carers and visitors as well as providing information about the various policies, practice and procedures in our school.
We are all extremely proud of our school and committed to providing the very best possible education for all of our children. We know that Grove Lea Primary is a school where:
• Children feel safe within a happy stimulating and attractive environment.
• Each child is encouraged to enjoy learning and develop a lively and enquiring mind.
• Children develop skills as independent learners.
• Children have a thirst for acquiring knowledge.
We are extremely fortunate to have a relatively new, well-equipped building and fantastic outside space. We take great pride in the fact that we have a happy and inclusive school in which the children’s voice is clearly heard in an atmosphere that encourages respect for all and respect for the environment. When any visitor walks round school they comment on happy children engaged in their learning.
At Grove Lea Primary we look forward to building strong relationships with parents. Parents are welcomed as partners in their child’s education. We believe that our children learn best when members of staff and parents work in partnership so we value your involvement with your child's education.
I feel privileged to lead a team of professional, talented and committed staff who provide well planned and engaging lessons and activities. A wide range of curriculum enrichment activities are also provided to enhance children's learning, for e.g. After School Clubs. We have a supportive and hard working group of governors who are highly skilled in different areas. Governors and staff work together to provide our children with the very best learning opportunities. We encourage our pupils to be responsible for their learning, to grow in confidence and become independent. This is represented in our School Motto...
‘If it is to be, it is up to me’
