About Grove Church of England School

Grove CE Primary School is a warm, welcoming school with fantastic staff who are
dedicated to building on our current high standards and achievements by teaching a
rich, varied curriculum.

We have grown significantly in the last few years, with the 196 pupils running from
Reception to Year 6. Our children are enthusiastic learners who are keen to
challenge themselves, to take risks and to succeed within a secure and supportive

Everyone who enters the school finds a very warm and friendly atmosphere. It
comes from being a true village school and from having committed and caring staff
and governors.

We offer children a wide range of opportunities, whether on the sports pitches, being
creative in Art, playing instruments as part of our music group or singing in our choir,
exploring our outside spaces, or through academic achievement. We want every
child’s light to shine!

We have been a member of the Oxford Diocesan Schools Trust since 2013. We
enjoy close links with St John the Baptist Church, who are just down the road. The
church supports the school in a variety of ways and the local governing body are
keen that the school should continue to develop its Christian identity. We receive
tremendous support from the parent body, with an active and strong PTA and we are
also members of wider support networks with Oxfordshire Southern Hub and
Springline partnership for local schools offering support to the SMT.
