About Griffin Primary

At Griffin Primary we will encourage you to participate fully in your child’s education. We know that in order for children to develop fully and healthily, a positive partnership between the parent and the school is vital, so your opinions and support are both valued and welcomed. Close working relationships between parents, teachers and children will produce the best possible opportunities for children to make great progress.


We encourage and expect children to work to the best of their ability in all curriculum areas.  We offer a wide range of experiences to ensure that every child has access to a broad, balanced and enriched education. At Griffin Primary, your children will learn to respect themselves and have respect for others.  We aim to develop individuals who will take responsibility for themselves, and their communities, so that when they leave us, they do so as thinking and responsible young people who will grow up and contribute positively, creating value in the society in which they live.
