At Grove Road, we all share a common, child-centred goal to foster
a culture of learning and enjoyment for all.
Our strong and effective partnership with parents is an essential ingredient
for our school. At Grove, we work hard to equip every child with the skills and
aspirations to become life-long learners in partnership with parents and a
range of school partners.
Our aim is to foster this culture of partnership and success for
all, so that parents, pupils, governors and staff feel confident and secure
that Grove Road will go from strength to strength.
I joined Grove Road as Headteacher in September 2012 with 18
years of experience in Primary education. I am exceptionally proud of the
professional learning community that we have developed. Our governors are
committed and ambitious in their leadership of our school and provide an
excellent contribution in terms of their time and professional expertise. The
staff are a hard-working and dedicated team who have built a strong learning
community; balancing high expectations with a range of systems and routines to
build and nurture positive attitudes to learning amongst the children. The
children have a strong voice, with every child participating in fortnightly
House Forums. We seek their views regularly to ensure they feel confident and
happy in their learning.
The pace of change and improvement at Grove Road has been very
exciting. The challenge is to maintain these improvements whilst continuing to
promote long term adaptive changes. Grove Road is the perfect example of how
school and community can come together to harness success and generate
continual improvement to secure long term success. We believe passionately that
every child has the right to succeed and pursue whatever dreams they may have
for the future.
