Ethos and Aims
On behalf of all the staff and governors, we welcome you and your child to our school website.
We hope that the information you find on our website gives you a greater understanding of us as a school; our aims, beliefs and what we offer your child and your family. We really do stand at the heart of such a wonderful community and we feel a real privilege to be given the opportunity to teach and help prepare your child for their future.
We use Facebook, Twitter and ParentMail to share events and information about what is going on in and out of school.
School and home are at the heart of a successful journey through education for your child. We hope you will take every opportunity to get to know us better through regular contact, discussions with staff and by taking advantage of the many occasions that exist for visiting the school. Our door is always open to you and we really appreciate the sharing of information so that we are able to care for your child in the best way possible. Although educating is our bread and butter, we offer much more than that. Your child’s wellbeing is at the heart of everything we do. We want them to feel that they belong to our school and enjoy the time they spend with us. We hope to give them wider experiences that will excite and inspire them and we are excited to share their journey with you.
Grangetown Primary School is a friendly, welcoming learning community committed to creating the best possible educational experience for every child.
We begin caring for our pupils from the minute the family walk through the door. We believe that each step of every child’s education is as important as the one before. We strive to provide inspiring and memorable learning experiences throughout their learning journey.
We recognise that children learn in different ways and that they learn best when their emotions are engaged and that learning should be fun, creative and allow the children to experience many different enriching activities that broaden their horizons and raise their aspirations.
Through these experiences we believe that our pupils will become happy, secure responsible young people who have a sense of belonging to our community, which in turn is proud of them.
We want to foster and develop positive relationships and clear communication between parents, pupils and staff. We provide a warm welcome and a listening ear to parents and pupils views and concerns. We place a high importance on positive social behaviour and respect for each other which we see as an important component of their whole education.
We aim to…
- Provide a safe haven for our pupils, a place where they feel safe, secure, cared for and wanted;
- Provide high quality creative education;
- Provide a wide range of experiences for our pupils to enjoy and take part in;
- Provide an enriching, fun and creative curriculum which captures the children’s imagination;
- Provide an environment where children will thrive and become independent, confident learners;
- Foster cultural awareness and respect for people from different backgrounds and cultures;
- Provide a place where everyone shines with possibility and reaches their full potential.
