Excellence for all

Welcome

A very warm welcome to Granton Primary School's website. The whole school community is extremely proud to continue to provide an outstanding education for all of our pupils.

We are a thriving school community where high aspirations and a caring family ethos are at the heart of what we do. The inspection report captures thewelcome image 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.  Our work on the school's curriculum, which started in 2017, is now paying off as our pupils are acquiring cumulatively sufficient knowledge over time, across all the subjects they are studying. Our pupils often achieve standards which often exceeds both local and national standards! We are also extremely proud of the many opportunities we provide our pupils to develop beyond the formal academic curriculum.

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
