Dear Grove Park Community,

In light of unprecedented circumstances, the school has had to close its gates for the foreseeable future. Grove Park is a special place, full of kindness, trust and care for every child and adult in the school community. But we are more than a school, we are a safe place and a family.  Family is the anchor that holds us through life’s storms and although we may not be able to see you all every day, please know that you are all in our thoughts.  We know that for many of you, the unknown can be a scary place to be, but rest assured we will be here waiting.

Whilst we navigate ourselves through this ‘new normal’, we want to thank all parents and carers for your unwavering support and words of compassion. It has been reassuring to know that we have your full support in these difficult times.

When parents, adults and visitors, come to our school, they always comment on the atmosphere, that there really is a special feeling when you walk through those doors. It goes without saying that the staff at Grove Park are simply fantastic and throughout these uncertain times, their commitment, enthusiasm and love for the children has not wavered. We would like to thank the staff at Grove Park for their incredible dedication towards the children, the parents and the senior leadership team. You are irreplaceable.

As we say goodbye for now, please know you are in our hearts and we will miss you all incredibly. The distance between us is no barrier to the strength of this school community. When we return, we will be stronger, closer and more determined than ever before. Live in the present and use this time to be with your loved ones and make new memories. Be strong, remember to laugh and smile.

For now, we leave you with three simple sentences:

Faith makes things possible

Love makes all things easy

Hope makes all things work


The Senior Leadership Team
