Message From Head
Dear Parents and Visitors to our Web Site,

Firstly I would like to extend a warm welcome to all visitors to our School Website, I hope that from the information you read here you are able to develop an understanding of our ethos, values, curriculum and provision we have in place at Grimsdyke on a day to day basis.

At Grimsdyke School we have a clear ethos of “Learning and Achieving Together” which is underpinned by strong beliefs in Rights Respecting. This means that we place the child in the centre of all the things that we do. Throughout the school we foster a safe cohesive calm, caring environment where students feel valued and are challenged through a broad and balanced curriculum supported by outstanding class practitioners. As a staff we are all committed to ensure this happens on a day to day basis.

In order for students to achieve and develop holistically they are encouraged to learn in a variety of different ways. At Grimsdyke we endeavour to involve students in learning by setting goals, reflecting, taking opportunities to lead with their peers or class and developing a positive mindset where mistakes and challenge become a key part to their development and progress. These opportunities develop a well-rounded learner that is able to adapt to a wide range of situations thus making the best of all learning experiences now and in the future.

Teaching is more than imparting knowledge, it is inspiring change.

Learning is more than absorbing facts, it is acquiring understanding.

I am often asked what am I most proud of at Grimsdyke School. For many different reasons, the thing that I am most proud of at Grimsdyke School is the students. They are wonderfully behaved, engaging, confident and well supported in their learning which allows them to maintain the high standards that are set, both by them and by others.

If you have any further questions regarding the website or the school in general then please contact us, or do please visit us and see what a wonderful school Grimsdyke is with all of the opportunities we offer the students.
