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's behaviour is exemplary; they 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 http://www.parentview.ofsted.gov.uk/ where you will be able to complete a very short questionnaire.

Mental Health Awareness Week
Mon 10th - Frid 14th May 2021
This week is Mental Health Awareness Week.
The theme for this year is ‘Nature’. Research has found a link between feeling connected to nature and having improved wellbeing.
Given the recent lockdown restrictions, we thought it would be a great opportunity to get outside with the children and explore nature within the grounds of our school. The children will be taking part in a variety of activities such as rainbow nature hunts, cloud spotting, natural sculptures and creating a bee and butterfly garden.
Please keep an eye on the BLOG for photographs.

Visit our Virtual Library, where you can listen to great stories!
The videos in our Virtual Library enable our children to hear books read aloud and this is one of the most important activities for reading success. It provides children with a demonstration of phrased, fluent reading and develops the listener's interest in books and desire to be a reader.
