The Curriculum

At Grimsdell we believe that learning should be inspiring, memorable and meaningful. Combining academic rigour with 21st-century skills, our creative curriculum provides depth in coverage of skills in all subject areas and allows children to recognize the links in their learning.

Games & the Arts

Music and Drama is engaging and fun at Grimsdell and an integral part of our school day. We are a ‘Sing Up’ platinum school and we love to sing! Our children also love Drama, which we incorporate into our curriculum almost daily.

In PE you child will learn vital skills for their development and our specialist PE teacher will teach them balance, co-ordination, gross motor skills, ball skills and team work in a variety of sports including gymnastics, tennis, swimming and athletics.

Pastoral Care

Our school is a friendly place where everyone feels part of our family. We will make sure your child feels safe and nurtured here. With our support your child will be ready to learn, develop their personality and become secure and confident in everything they do. Your child’s class teacher and teaching assistant will get to know them well, we communicate often with you, and together with all our specialist staff, your child will be surrounded by people who will always take care of their wellbeing.
