We know that primary education only takes 8 years, but lasts a lifetime. 

At The Grove, we aspire to be an example of the best kind of primary school – one that creates great people (Staff and Children). Staff filled with enthusiasm and passion alongside children immersed in a culture of sky-high expectation, relentless learning inside of a community of character. 

Developing the building blocks for life-long learning is complex. Embedding and applying the knowledge and skills required to be exceptional is very demanding. At The Grove Academy we know that these things are only improved and made permanent on purpose. Nothing happens here by accident. 

We aim for our STAFF to be  professionally inspired, morally driven and provided with the conditions under which they are truly incredible. We ensure they are provided with quality CPD, given extra time to research and reflect, and not inundated with unnecessary workload. Our professional capital is only outweighed by our professional happiness.  

We aim for our CHILDREN  to thrive in challenge and soar when they are at the centre of their learning. Simply put, they are inspirational. No challenge is too big, no problem too difficult; they know what they are doing, why they are doing it and how they can be better. They are partners in the learning process – sometimes recipients; other times active participants – ALWAYS challenged, engaged and moving forward.
