Welcome

SNWelcome to Pyrcroft Grange Primary School. I am delighted and proud to be the Headteacher of such a forward thinking and happy school where the school community shares the highest of expectations and aspiration for everyone; working hard together towards securing the best outcomes for every single child. Our driving ambition is to provide excellence for all in teaching and learning and to open doors to a bright future.

Pyrcroft Grange is a one form entry school in Chertsey, Surrey and we are proud to be part of the Bourne Education Trust. We are situated in a small, dynamic community and surrounded by beautiful countryside. Our learning environments are engaging and play a key part in moving children’s learning forward. In the Early Years Foundation Stage, outdoor learning is an integral requirment of the curriculum; our children enjoy an extensive outdoor setting in which to learn and play together.

We promote excellence in learning and include the development of thinking skills, collaborative and investigative opportunities for children throughout their learning journey. Active involvement in the learning process leads children to become independent, creative and autonomous learners. We use the International Primary Curriculum to plan exciting and interesting topics. Educational visits and visitors help to enrich the children’s learning experiences and provide further learning beyond the classroom.

Our school council has written our mission statement Dream, Believe, Work, Achieve. “If you can dream it, you will believe it; if you believe it, you work for it; if you work for it, you will achieve it……” This sentiment underpins all we do at Pyrcroft Grange and it reflects the attitude that permeates the school. The school’s ethos is for everyone to learn and to be the best they can be.

This year is an exciting time for our school following yet another exceptional set of Year 6 SATs results. These results reflect the upward trend of academic success the school has secured over the last three years. Pyrcroft Grange is known as the school that cares about its pupils, strives for academic success whilst developing the whole child and is the local parents’ first choice. In December 2016 the school was graded by Ofsted as Outstanding.

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. We operate an open door policy and we have regular Family Learning sessions and we also invite parents to termly class assemblies and parent teacher meetings.

Upon arrival at the school, you will 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 Pyrcroft Grange is where this very important journey begins.

Our school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. 

You are always welcome to come and visit us, so please contact the school and we will be happy to arrange an appointment for you.

I look forward to meeting you very soon.

Sue Nardoni, Headteacher
