A warm welcome to our school...
It gives me great pleasure to write to you as the Headteacher of Grove Street Primary School and to welcome you to what will be a very busy and exciting year ahead. This is a school with an extraordinary charm and a nurturing ethos which holds children at its heart. We are lucky to have a highly-skilled, committed team who strive for the upmost success for our children and who have a caring and supportive ethos at their core. Grove Street Primary School is undoubtedly a unique school and I feel privileged to be leading us forward.
This is my second headship and I have previously been a Deputy Headteacher and Assistant Headteacher in a variety of schools in Wirral and Liverpool which have undergone intensive change and have made remarkable improvements. It is my aim to build on the nurturing foundations and current achievements ensuring that our school is forward thinking and ambitious within a supportive environment. I fully appreciate how important each year of a child’s school life is towards preparing them for life, from our youngest 2 year olds to our Year 6s. I am passionate about teaching and learning, I have very high expectations, not only for myself but for all members of our school community. I hope you will support our high expectations in all areas, especially in attendance and behaviour which naturally impacts greatly on achievement.
I’m passionate about safeguarding the intrinsic value of childhood, ensuring that all our children can enjoy a magical childhood at Grove Street, full of exciting and challenging learning experiences, nurtured well-being and friendships. I truly believe that every child has the ability to succeed whatever their starting point and I want each child to flourish to achieve their full and unique potential and are inspired to become confident, resilient learners.
