Welcome to the Grove Road Community Primary School Website


On behalf of the children, staff and governors, I would like to warmly welcome you to Grove Road Community Primary School's website.


Grove Road has always been proud to be different: we celebrate uniqueness and we welcome individuality. We see ourselves as a centre of academic and inclusive excellence and our team are committed to championing the wonderfully diverse children in our care. Our unwavering dedication to ensure that every child receives an outstanding education in a kind, nurturing, exciting environment leads to happy children with a lifelong love of learning. Just speak to local secondary schools and they will be able to identify the Grove Road children from the positivity and passion that they carry with them into Year 7!


Our Curriculum of PRIDE rests firmly on the foundations of our school values and we strive to make sure that every child feels represented throughout their learning journey. A primary school curriculum is not just a set of building blocks to pass Year 6 SATs, instead it is an opportunity to build the foundations of learning that children will take with them through secondary school and beyond. We work hard to recruit the very best educators who have a strong moral purpose and each of them takes great pride in seeing our children flourish throughout their time here. Every adult in the school believes that pupils, regardless of their background, have a right to the best quality education and we fight every day to make sure that our children's needs are met.


We have very high expectations of our pupils with regard to their learning and behaviour and we love celebrating childrens' successes with their families. You can expect conversations in person, Headteacher's awards, Star of the Week certificates, phone calls home and postcards to tell you how proud we are of your children for demonstrating our PRIDE values. You can find out more about our behaviour and rewards systems in the statutory information and policies section on the website.


I am incredibly proud to be the Headteacher of Grove Road. Having worked here as a teacher and leader, I have loved seeing your children thrive and I am excited to support this on a larger scale as Headteacher.


We welcome visitors and feedback. Please contact the school office on 01423 506060 or headteacher@groveroad.n-yorks.sch.uk if there's anything that we can do to support you and your children.


Mr Christopher Harrison
