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!


We are proud of our reputation as a friendly, welcoming school and do our best to be approachable, open and understanding. Our school is a 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. 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.

We are always finding ways to make our school even better and recently we have been working on our teaching and learning approaches. This hard work has already seen us achieve our best ever outcomes at year 6 in Summer 2019 (since SATs were updated in 2016). We are also working on our curriculum, to ensure that our children are fully engaged in their learning and can remember and build on their learning across the years.

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.
