About Us

Head Teacher's Welcome

Welcome to Grateley Primary School. I am very excited to have the fantastic opportunity to be the Headteacher of such a warm, welcoming and friendly school. We are a small, village primary school situated in the heart of Grateley village. Our families come from Grateley itself and the surrounding villages.

We have approximately 97 children currently on roll. In such a small community, it is important that we get to know all of our families. It is only by working together that we can ensure that the children thrive and experience an all-round education.

Our school motto is: 'where every child becomes a lifelong learner and realises their potential'. It is through this that we ensure that the children are at the very centre of all that we do and become lifelong learners; both academically and socially.

Respect, Resilience, Resourcefulness, Reflectiveness, Relationships, are key concepts that we use to build the children's confidence and self-esteem. Enabling the children to excel and achieve many successes in their time with us.

We believe in a broad and balanced curriculum. We work tirelessly to ensure that the curriculum opportunities that we provide, are tailored to the children's needs and interests.

I am extremely proud to be leading a school such as Grateley.  The best way to find out about our school is to come and visit, to see us in action and to meet our children and staff. 

I look forward to welcoming you to our school.
