Welcome to Plymouth Grove Primary School
It gives me a great pleasure on behalf of all the staff, children, parents and governors, to warmly welcome you to our wonderful school.
At Plymouth Grove Primary School, our core school values are respect, equality and friendship.
As a Gold UNICEF Rights Respecting School, the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) is embedded in everything we do. All adults are duty bearers, and work together to protect these rights. This ensures that all children have their rights respected, their voices heard and their contributions valued, and all have the best possible start in life.
We aim for all our pupils to be responsible, caring citizens and to be lifelong learners, developing resilience, reflectiveness, reciprocity and resourcefulness. Our approaches through Building Learning Power and being a Rights Respecting School underpin these aspects of our intent.
As a Manchester school we follow the Our Manchester agenda and want our pupils to contribute to:
A progressive and equitable city
A highly skilled city
A thriving and sustainable city
A liveable and low carbon city
A connected city
We know that it is essential that all pupils learn to speak, read and write well and basic skills in English and Maths is a top priority. We value our strong partnership with parents and carers to jointly support all pupils to develop a lifelong love of reading. Oracy enables deeper understanding of the curriculum and develops critical thinking.
Our school is really all about our wonderful pupils from age three to eleven. We are a happy and hard working school family. Our staff make a huge commitment giving many hours of their own time to develop programmes of learning. We enjoy learning together and sharing new experiences which are exciting and fun.
We believe Plymouth Grove is a marvellous place to learn together. It is a special and caring place to be and all members of the school are welcome and valued. We are proud of our inclusivity and our ability to cater to a wide range of pupil needs.
We know that our school could not achieve all that it does without the full support of our families and we welcome parents and carers in to meet with us to discuss their children at their convenience.
