Our aim is for all pupils at Kelvin Grove to achieve their highest potential both socially and academically, as part of an inclusive learning community preparing them for the future.
Kelvin Grove is a large and increasingly popular school that successfully caters for a broad and diverse range of pupils including the most able pupils as well as those with special educational needs or disabilities, as recognised in our Ofsted inspection.
The Governing Body brings together parents, representatives from the local community, and people with relevant expertise, to help set the direction for Kelvin Grove, provide practical support and hold the school to account.
We, as Governors, work with the school’s leadership team to ensure every pupil receives an outstanding education. For us, this means a continuing strong focus on the core curriculum (reading, writing and maths) but without compromising on access to a broader curriculum so that every pupil has the chance to develop a love of learning across a range of subjects. We are proud of our music provision (including instrument tuition, a school orchestra, choir and band), our developing extra-curricular activities including sports and performing arts, and our excellent school trips.
As a parent with two children at the school, I am really proud of the education they are receiving and the friends they are making at Kelvin Grove and I am committed to working with the Governing Body and the school’s leadership team to ensure that all parents feel the same.
Please contact me if you have any questions.
