Parental Feedback July 2022
Graveney Primary School provides a safe, caring and happy environment for your child to learn and develop.
Our early years classroom is limited to 15 pupils, as a small school we believe that keeping this as a small class gives the children the best start to their school life.
At Graveney we believe in celebrating success at every level. The life of the school is driven by enthusiasm and a desire to achieve.
We aim to bring learning alive, making it exciting and stimulating for all of our pupils.
Your child only gets one chance at education and we aim to make a difference!
