Gretton Primary is a small village school which has a strong family feel. In March 2016 it was rated as Good with Outstanding features by Ofsted which highly praised its leadership, governance, early years provision and its focus on the personal development of every child.
The school, which is led by Principal Jane MacDonald, has undergone a major extension which has provided it with a new, state of the art hall and additional classrooms. The delightful grounds 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 believes that all children are individuals and every single child has their own strengths which the school helps them develop. 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.
