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 where you will be able to complete a very short questionnaire.

Mr J L Pridden
