Granard Primary School

"Growing together; Achieving together"

Vision, Values and Aims

Our visions and values are at the core of everything we do.  They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident, happy citizens.



Vision Statement


Granard is a high achieving, stimulating and energetic school.  We promote equality of opportunities and are united in delivering our vision:


We provide inspirational teaching and learning in a supportive and creative environment which

enables children to achieve academic excellence.  Our broad and balanced curriculum and a varied range of other opportunities enrich our children’s knowledge and life experiences within and beyond the classroom.


Our children are happy and confident individuals who feel safe and secure within a

nurturing environment.

We motivate children to become life long learners and encourage resilience, perseverance, tolerance and respect for themselves and others.


We are set in spacious grounds comprising grassy areas and well equipped outdoor learning spaces which enhance our stimulating curriculum and extra curricular activities.

We make full use of the wider provision of our local community, Greater London and the countryside beyond.


At the heart of a diverse and thriving community, we are more than teachers and children;

we are the inclusive hub for local families and the local area.  

Our children are prepared to be successful and responsible citizens locally, nationally

and globally.


We foster respectful relationships and value all.
