Head Teacher’s Welcome

Dear Parents and Carers,

We hope the time you and your child spend with us will be both happy and successful. The Grange Primary School is no ordinary place – it is a place that is focused on fostering lifelong skills and qualities. It is a wonderful school and the children are the very epitome of all that is good about it.

We believe that education should be a partnership between pupils, parents, staff and governors and that children learn more effectively when they see parents and teachers working together in a cohesive environment.

We aim to provide a happy, purposeful, caring, friendly and stimulating environment in which children are able to blossom, grow, achieve high standards, gain a sense of independence and begin to realise their full potential. Our philosophy on learning is that this should be life-long, life-wide and life-deep.

Children are encouraged to take pride in their work, to work hard and to do the best they can at all times.  High standards of behaviour and discipline are expected at this school so that children, parents and staff feel both safe and valued as individuals.

The family of the school is a warm and happy one, where self-esteem and confidence (without arrogance) are developed and grown, where academic rigour is appropriate to the child’s abilities and where people skills are extended to ensure that in life your child will be a major contributor to society.

We hope you will find the Prospectus helpful.  If you need more information do not hesitate to ask.  We look forward to working with you.

Yours sincerely,

Larissa Thorpe – Headteacher (BLS, PGCE, MA in Leadership & Management, NPQH, Teaching Awards 2010 Distinction LLE)
