Head Teacher's Welcome

OFSTED 2018: By the end of Year 6, pupils make good progress because teachers have good subject knowledge, plan lessons effectively and work hard to make lessons fun and interesting. Pupils say that they are proud to belong to the school and that all the staff care for them.

A Message from the Headteacher:

Welcome to Friar’s Grove Primary School!


Our school is a welcoming, thriving community, where staff, parents and governors work closely together to ensure that the children in our care receive the best education and school experience that we can offer.

All members of staff get to know our pupils well and we are wholeheartedly committed to understanding them in a 360º way. Our partnership with families is essential in helping to build a clear picture of every child as an individual, and in meeting their social, emotional and learning needs.

Please take the time to browse through our school website, where you will learn more about our values, policies and approaches. A visit to our school is always recommended as that is undoubtedly the best way to get a real flavour of our ethos and of course you will be able to observe our happy and enthusiastic pupils as they go about their school day.
