Welcome back to the start of the 2023-24 academic year to all of our new and existing families!
Reminder: Monday 4th September is a training day
Good luck Year 6s
I would like to wish our 'old' Year 6s the best of luck as they begin their secondary school journeys. It seems only moments ago that we were celebrating their time at Grendon at the special Afternoon Tea in July.
Welcome to our new staff members
I am delighted to welcome new members of staff to the school team. Mrs Dyson and Mrs Carter are looking forward to starting their teaching roles at Grendon; they are already brilliant assets to the school team. Mrs Rainbow-Smith rejoins the school as a teaching assistant and I am very pleased that she has agreed to return.
I am extremely proud of the current standards within school, particularly the incredible outcomes achieved by pupils at the end of Key Stage 2. All staff within the school played an important role in our Year 6 cohort's achievements throughout their time at Grendon.
As you can see from the tables below, pupil outcomes in all areas are significantly higher than national outcomes - testimony to pupils' hard work, high quality teaching and wonderful support from parents.
All of the pupils in school will have PE on the first day back next week (Tuesday will continue to be PE day for all pupils for the whole school year). As a reminder, children should come to school in their PE kit on their PE days (no need to also send in school uniform as well).PE kits should be a plain white or blue t-shirt and blue shorts. Children can wear tracksuits/joggers/a warm top as long as they are plain.
If they haven't already, class teachers will let you know when your child's 2nd PE lesson of he week will be.
