"The Headteacher is an outstanding leader. Together with the assistant headteacher, she has successfully secured good and outstanding teaching across the school."
Ofsted report February 2016
Gretton is a small village school which has a strong family feel. We have fantastic children and wonderful supportive parents who enjoy getting involved with the life of the school. We elected to become an academy and joined the Brooke Weston Trust in 2011. As such, we now benefit from being part of a larger, extremely successful academic organisation and have access to facilities and opportunities beyond our normal scope, without losing our village identity.
The school works closely with other groups in the village to make sure that we are at the heart of the community. We have good links with other primary schools in the area and work with them to ensure that our small school enjoys some of the benefits of larger schools while maintaining a unique family nature.
Our fantastic teaching team delivers a creative curriculum that inspires a love of learning in our children. The school offers a wide range of opportunities beyond the academic areas of the curriculum. Pupils enjoy many sporting competitions, support the community through fund raising activities and enjoy residential visits as they get older.
Children at Gretton Primary Academy benefit from the outstanding teaching practice of our team, alongside our welcoming open door policy, in which parents are encouraged to discuss any concerns with their child’s teacher on an informal basis. We believe that all children are individuals and every single child has their own strengths that we help them to develop.
As such, all children are valued and all efforts are celebrated, with the result that our children grow into confident individuals who value their own worth and are confident to go out into the world. Our curriculum aims to develop children as self-motivated, independent learners.
Gretton Primary Academy is committed to serving our community. We promote British Values while recognising the multi-cultural, multi-faith and ever-changing nature of the United Kingdom.
The school accepts admissions from all those entitled to an education under British law, including pupils of all faiths or none. It follows the policies outlined by the Brooke Weston Trust regarding equal opportunities, which guarantee that there will be no discrimination against any individual or group, regardless of faith, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, political or financial status, or similar. It seeks to serve all.
