Welcome to Nursery

At Grove Lea Primary we are proud to offer a safe and nurturing environment where children are happy, confident and motivated to do their very best.

Trusting relationships are quickly formed to ensure children and parents feel supported and part of our committed team. Our ultimate aim is to provide excellent, high quality education and teach children to be resilient and aspirational individuals. Partnerships with parents and carers are important to us with communication being the key to success.

Through thoughtful planning, activities are varied and offer enjoyable, key learning experiences to prepare our children for the next stage of their education. Much of our learning derives from spontaneity and children’s own interests. We are a team of passionate professionals who are motivated to tailor learning to individual needs and have the child’s voice at the heart of everything we do.

We guide children to be independent and inquisitive, to initiate their own learning, both in and outdoors, and thrive through our enriched curriculum. Adults support children as appropriate, providing rich experiences, extending learning and capturing magical moments.

50 things to do before you're 5

Grove Lea Primary school is proud to be a 50 things champion school!

50 Things is based on the simple notion that access to life-changing, fun, low-cost or no cost experiences with your family is a great way to support and develop young children’s language skills and confidence, so that they enter primary school much more ready to learn. The 50 Things project is about getting parents involved in a range of activities with their children, along with appropriate support and guidance that will make an impact.
