Executive Headteacher's Message

welcome image


A very warm welcome to Granton Primary School’s website.

We are a three-form entry school, much larger than most primary schools in the country. However, we remain to be a tight-knit community of learners. Our pupils, their families and our numerous visitors, frequently comment on the ‘family’ feel one gets when visiting our school. Collectively, we speak 53 languages. We embrace and celebrate this diversity!

All our efforts, our plans and actions, are geared towards achieving ‘Excellence for All.’ Indeed, despite the many challenges brought about by the COVID19 pandemic, outcomes for all pupils remain strong across all phases and key stages. We remain to be the school of choice for the local community.

Our provisions are shaped by a deep understanding of the needs of our pupils. It is a continuing endeavour for all our staff to know our pupils well. We strive to deliver a relevant, engaging, and rigorous curriculum through a culture of high expectations and a consistent demand for excellence. We do not rest until good becomes better, and better becomes best. OFSTED referred to this in their report: Teachers’ detailed knowledge of their pupils means that they can match learning to specific individual needs. This helps pupils to gain confidence and make rapid progress. Teaching assistants are well trained to support individuals and small groups very effectively. This particularly helps pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities to make at least good progress from their different starting points.  

We are fortunate to receive tremendous support from our parents and carers. The home- school partnership is one of exceptional importance to us as we firmly believe that this is the key to ensuring successful learning for your child.

On arriving at Granton Primary School, you immediately notice the excellent learning behaviour of our pupils and the passion, enthusiasm and friendliness of our staff. We believe that your children’s’ journey to learning is lifelong and we feel privileged that Granton Primary School is where this very important journey begins.

Visits from families considering Granton for their child’s education are most welcome and can be arranged via the school office.
