The Grove Infant and Nursery School

Achieving our potential in our creative learning community

Who's Who

The Headteacher has a team of 15 teachers and 18 support staff, some of whom work part-time and support children with special educational needs.  Early Years Practitioners work alongside the teacher at each Nursery session.

We are aware that our staff are our most valuable asset - dedicated and hardworking, they strive endlessly to improve the quality of provision for pupils at our school. 

Meet the staff at our school!
