An Introduction

Grange is an inspiring and caring place to learn. We offer a fun, creative and challenging curriculum underpinned by a caring atmosphere and safe environment. We learn through a thematic based curriculum; our lessons are cross – curricular and exciting! The school had a successful OFSTED inspection in 2014. We have also achieved the Advanced Healthy School Award, the Arts Mark, the Active mark, the Advanced International Award, Fair Trade status, and more!

Here at Grange, we are very lucky to have lots of facilities, including a trim trail, amazing playground markings, Africa and Creative Zones, and a range of ICT resources for use across the curriculum. In addition, we have a music and library area with a wide range of books and instruments. All of our classrooms have colourful, stimulating and interactive displays. The displays exhibit children’s best work, and provide information or hints that help children to improve their work further.

Pupils at Grange are always complimented on their outstanding behaviour and kind, helpful nature, both in and out of school. All members of staff are friendly, understanding, creative, and make our lessons and activities fun and exciting!

The Early Years Unit is a great attribute to our school. As well as following a detailed curriculum, great importance is attached to the development of children's social skills which helps them build successful relationships with other children and adults, before entering mainstream school.

We think of morning assembly as a shared experience and an important part of the day. Our interesting assemblies take place in the hall, where we sing and celebrate our efforts and achievements. We also learn about past and present events and consider religious teachings and stories. Additionally, assembly times provide the opportunity to celebrate birthdays and special occasions. We are fortunate that we are able to invite knowledgeable speakers and governors from the community into our school. The hall is also equipped for physical education, and has a large stage and lighting for our magnificent plays. There is a surround-sound speaker system in the hall and an advanced music system combined with audio induction loop for the hard of hearing.The hall is also used for dance, drama, as a dining area at lunchtime, and for many clubs, before and after school.

We have a commitment to serve our community both at home and abroad and to develop as a full community partnership school with our town schools, especially through our work together at the Wickford Collaborative Learning Centre. We host visiting students and staff from around the world and a link school in Ghana where we support a reading project.
