Welcome to Grosvenor Road Primary School

I am delighted to welcome you to Grosvenor Road Primary School's website. As a large Primary School, we actively encourage the involvement of parents and members of our community in school life. The success of each child's education is important to us whatever their ability. We pride ourselves on being a happy, secure and forward-looking school totally committed to ensuring the highest possible achievements for all our children.

Whether you are a prospective parent or have children already at the school, you can be assured that all staff involved with your children are committed to providing a high quality education.

Throughout our school there is an ethos of high expectation, respect and a drive for children to be the best learners they can be. Our children are well mannered and polite and this contributes to the calm and purposeful atmosphere around school.

I would be delighted to personally meet with you and to take you around the school to see for yourself the quality of provision we offer. I look forward to meeting with you at some point.

Your views are always welcomed and you can do this by visiting where you will be able to complete a very short questionnaire.

Basketball Competition

Wednesday 14th February 2018

Last night, a team of 8 children from Year 3 and 4 played in a Basketball Competition at The Deans Primary School. There were 8 teams at the competition and everybody played fantastically. The team got off to a positive start, winning their first games. After such an amazing performance, we were then placed into the semi-final of the competition. With a marvellous win of 6-1, we were guaranteed a place in the final. The final was very tense, with both teams drawing 2-2 at the final whistle. It was the next team to score to win the tournament. Not long after the final whistle, Todor had the ball and shot for goal, he scored an outstanding winning goal. Grosvenor Road won the tournament! The team played amazingly, very professional and excellent teamwork. As well as this amazing victory, Todor won player of the tournament, winning himself a trophy. The school have won a trophy too (which will be displayed in the trophy cabinet) and each child got a medal and certificate. Well done team Grosvenor, excellent work!

Internet Safety Week

Monday 5th September 2018

Today we launched Internet Safety Week. Over the week children will participate in a range of activities linked to today’s assemblies on the theme “Create, Connect and Share Respect.” KS1 explored what the internet is and discussed the different apps that use the internet. Children talked about the Three Little Monsters Story and how sharing positive comments about people is the safest way to use the internet. KS2 explored the range of apps used to communicate with people and that saying positive things is the best way to act. Staying safe is easy if we share positive things and tell an adult when we have a problem or issue.
