Dear Parent / Carer,
Welcome to Grangetown Primary School! Croeso i Ysgol Gynradd Grangetown!
Our children are at the centre of everything we do and this was reflected in our last ESTYN inspection report (January 2019), when inspectors described our school as one which, '...knows its pupils well. Adults care about their pupils,and nurture them to develop into confident, ethical citizens'.
We encourage our children to give of their best academically, socially and through a range of extra-curricular activities. By showing that we expect the best, the children give of their best and so reach their full potential. Our school motto is, ‘Learning together for a brighter future’.
We provide a rich, broad and balanced curriculum, focusing on the development of skills, which can be applied in a range of contexts. Our children’s views and ideas are sought at every opportunity, as we attach a great deal of importance to developing confident children who can contribute fully to the life of the school. We work hard to develop self-assurance, self-belief and independence.
As parents and carers, you have a vital role to play in the education of your child. We aim to keep you fully informed of any developments. Regular contact is positively encouraged – if you have any worries or questions - come and talk to us! We send home a newsletter each month, hold annual induction meetings with parents, invite parents in on 'Family Fridays' as well as our two formal parents’ evenings a year.
We are fortunate to have a very supportive Governing Body who are willing to ask challenging questions on the children’s behalf. This promotes the school’s philosophy of regular and rigorous self-evaluation supporting school improvement in order to provide the very best education for all the children.
I look forward to meeting you and your family at Grangetown Primary School.
Mrs. S. Chase
