Headteacher's Message

 

A very warm welcome to Granton Primary School's website.The whole school community is extremely proud to have been judged by OFSTED as an Outstanding school in July 2017.

It is a great privilege to join the Granton family as a Headteacher at such an exciting time. It is a thriving school community where high aspirations and a caring family ethos are at the heart of what we do. The inspection report captures the very culture that all at Granton endeavours to sustain: Leaders have created a strong family atmosphere where pupils and staff feel highly valued and share a love of learning.

Our provisions are shaped by a deep understanding of the needs of our pupils. It is a continuing endeavour for all of our staff to know our pupils well. We strive to deliver a relevant, engaging, and rigorous curriculum through a culture of high expectations and a consistent demand for excellence. We do not rest until good becomes better, and better becomes best. OFSTED made reference to this in their report: Teachers’ detailed knowledge of their pupils means that they can match learning to specific individual needs. This helps pupils to gain confidence and make rapid progress. Teaching assistants are well trained to support individuals and small groups very effectively. This particularly helps pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities to make at least good progress from their different starting points.  

We are fortunate to receive tremendous support from our parents and carers. The home- school partnership is one of exceptional importance to us as we firmly believe that this is the key to ensuring successful learning for your child.

 

On arriving at Granton Primary School, you immediately notice the excellent learning behaviour of our pupils and the passion, enthusiasm and friendliness of our staff. We believe that your children’s’ journey to learning is lifelong and we feel privileged that Granton Primary School is where this very important journey begins.

Visits from families considering Granton for their child’s education are most welcome and can be arranged via the school office
