About Gretton Primary School

Gretton Primary Academy is a small village school, which has a strong family feel. We currently have 152 pupils on roll, split into 6 classes. We are fortunate to have fantastic children and wonderfully supportive parents who enjoy getting involved with the life of the school. The school elected to become an academy and has joined the Brooke Weston Trust in September 2012. As such it now benefits from being part of a larger, extremely successful academic organisation and has access to facilities and opportunities beyond its normal scope, without losing its village identity.

The school works closely with other groups in the village, to make sure that we are at the heart of the community. We have good links with other primary schools in the area and work with them to ensure that our small schools benefit from some of the advantages of larger schools whilst maintaining their unique family nature.

The school has a creative curriculum which aims to inspire a love of learning and to develop children as self motivated, independent learners. We actively promote engaging, hands-on learning across the curriculum and also promote scientific enquiry and investigation.

Children at Gretton benefit from the outstanding teaching practice of our team alongside a welcoming open door policy in which parents are encouraged to discuss any concerns with their child's teacher on an informal basis. We believe that all children are individuals and every single child has their own strengths which we help them to develop. All children are valued in the school and all efforts are celebrated with the result that our children grow into confident individuals who value their own worth and are confident to go out into the world.

We are a high achieving school with results consistently above national averages in all statutory assessments. This is down to the hard work of the pupils and the dedication of the staff and their commitment to high standards.

Gretton Primary Academy is committed to serving its community. We promote British Values whilst recognising the multi-cultural, multi faith and ever-changing nature of the United Kingdom.
