Head Teacher’s Welcome

A very warm welcome to Grimley and Holt CE Primary School.

At the heart of Grimley village, we are much more than a school, we are a tight-knit community where each child is valued as an individual and encouraged to flourish.

Above all, Grimley and Holt is a happy school, where children enjoy their school life. We have an ethos of mutual respect, care and affection, where our oldest children look out for our newest additions, and where staff and children endeavour to live out Christian values, behaving towards each other with patience and kindness.

All these elements come together to create an environment in which each child is nurtured, encouraged to find their own aspirations, and to reach their individual potential.

At Grimley we follow a values-based curriculum and children particularly thrive through our Mantle of the Expert programme, where pupils take on the responsibilities of ‘experts’ in a fictional context. This integrated approach allows children to gain confidence, think critically and understand how to apply their knowledge and skills in the ‘real world’.

It’s important to us that we send children on to the next stage of their education as enthusiastic, life-long learners, who are not only self-confident, but confident to take risks and share their enthusiasm with their peers.

I am lucky to have a dedicated and enthusiastic team around me, and all our staff lead and inspire others to maintain excellence and achieve high standards.

We are proud to say we have been judged ‘Outstanding’ in the last two OFSTED inspections, and our Key Stage 2 SATs results have placed us in the top ten primaries in the county over the last three years.

We hope this website offers you an insight into the day-to-day life of our school, but if you have any queries at all, please do get in touch.

Rather than formal School Open Days, we feel a less planned approach and a visit during school hours can give you a much clearer picture of a child’s experience at Grimley and Holt. So, please phone or email us to arrange a school tour, meeting or discussion, with or without your children!

I would welcome the opportunity to meet you and show you what we are all about.
