Message from the Headteacher
It gives me great pleasure to introduce myself as the Headteacher of Crown Wood Primary School. I am proud to be part of a vibrant school at the heart of its community which ensures every child has the skills and attitudes they need to flourish and be the ‘best they can be’.
I have high expectations in all areas, especially behaviour and attainment. I strongly believe being prepared to learn from mistakes, effort, purposeful practice and acting on feedback leads to success and not innate talent or ability.
I am committed to ensuring your children not only have a solid grounding in English and Mathematics, but also the skills, values and attitudes they need to be successful in their next stage of education and beyond. These include being aspirational, resilience, an ability to work collaboratively, curiosity and having a 'go for it’ attitude.
At Crown Wood, we know every child is unique; with their own strengths and interests. We offer many opportunities for children to discover and develop their personal, social, moral and spiritual identities.
I know how vital working in partnership with parents is if children are to find school a positive and rewarding experience. I will always value your feedback and there will be many occasions when your views are sought, as they are very important in shaping the development of the school.
Mr Grant Strudley, MA, NPQH, FCCT
