Dear Parents

Since my appointment in January 2013 I have been very impressed by the atmosphere and especially the warm welcome I have received from children and staff alike. The previous Head Teacher, Ian Hardman, did an excellent job and everyone associated with Grange Valley should be proud of what has been achieved here in the past few years. It is a privilege to be entrusted with the job of leading Grange Valley and continuing this great work.

Rest assured I will work tirelessly with staff and governors to ensure the school continues to flourish and maintains its welcoming, family feel.  My vision is to ensure we are an outstanding school with creative learning experiences and an environment that challenges all individuals. I will ensure Grange Valley continues to improve and build on the solid foundations already in place.

I am sure there will be many challenges ahead, not least as the government makes changes to what is expected of schools. It is important that we work together to make sure our school serves the needs of the community and children.  I hope that as many of you will continue to be involved in the life of the school as much as possible. Only by working together can we make sure that our children enjoy school and develop the skills and knowledge they need to build successful, happy lives.

I look forward to meeting you in the coming months and please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any concerns or better still ideas for how Grange Valley can continue to improve further.

Mrs D Holcroft

Your views and opinions are extremely important. Parent View gives you the chance to tell us what you think about your child’s school.

Parent View asks for your opinion on 12 aspects of your child’s school, from the quality of teaching, to dealing with bullying and poor behaviour. If your child is at a boarding or a residential special school, it also asks for your opinion on five aspects of your child’s boarding or welfare. We will use the information you provide when making decisions about which schools to inspect, and when.
