About Us

Welcome to the Grendon Primary School Website

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the website of Grendon Primary School; a school that I began my teaching career at many years ago and one which I am now proud to lead as the Headteacher.

There is something very special about our school. Many of our staff began their teaching careers here and have since progressed to be Leaders at Grendon. Many of our past pupils now choose Grendon for their own children and are amazed by how the school has developed and improved over the years. We are a school that really does serve our community!

Grendon is a good and improving school; one in which children, parents, staff and Governors work together to ensure that our ‘We Can’ ethos is at the heart of everything we do.

Our vision highlights our focus on both academic and pastoral curricula. Our pastoral curriculum ensures children are safe, removes barriers to learning and develops strength of character. The result is that children are happy, healthy and ready to learn. Our academic curriculum offers structure and opportunity. High quality teaching ensures that all children are engaged by and involved in their learning, making strong progress. When children speak, we really listen!

We are lucky to be situated on a large site and have spacious rooms inside and lots of green space all around us which we certainly make the most of in our curriculum.

For those of you that know us, our website is a useful source of information, providing up-to-date information on school events, activities and policies, as well as signposting you to additional support and resources where required.

For those of you who are new to us, it is our hope that it helps you begin to find out about what makes Grendon great!

If you would like to know more, or would like to visit our school, please contact the school office. We will be pleased to help. We look forward to working in partnership with you to ensure that our children are happy, successful, develop a love of learning are well prepared for their future and really do leave Grendon believing that ‘WE CAN’.

I look forward to seeing you,

Helen Ridley
Head Teacher
