Gretton Primary School
T: 01536 770366
Gretton is a small village school, which has a strong family feel. Following its extremely good Ofsted inspection in November 2011, the school elected to become an academy and joined the Brooke Weston Trust. As such it now benefits from being part of a larger, extremely successful academic organisation and access to facilities and opportunities beyond its normal scope, without losing its village identity.
The school, which is led by Principal Jane MacDonald, has recently undergone a major extension which will provide it with a new, state of the art hall and additional classrooms. The delightful grounds in which the school is set, provide an exciting and stimulating environment including a trim trail woodland storytelling and adventure area, canopied outdoor classroom, willow tunnels and garden plots, in which the children can enjoy their learning.
Gretton Primary is the proud owner of a Healthy Schools Award and actively promotes to all the children an understanding of a healthy lifestyle. This year Gretton has also been awarded the Eco Schools Silver Status, recognising the awareness and work children do to encourage a sustainable future and the Arts Mark, which is a measure of the wider opportunities given to the children beyond the academic areas of the curriculum.
Gretton Primary believes that all children are individuals and every single child has their own strengths which the school try to help them to develop. As such all children are valued in the school, all efforts are celebrated with the result that children grow into confident individuals who value their own worth and are confident to go out into the world. The curriculum aims to develop children as self-motivated independent learners.
