Update Monday 8th June 2020

Covid-19 update 8th June

Our school will be closed to pupils from Friday 20th March until further notice as part of the Government’s response to the outbreak of COVID-19.

Despite our closure, we are determined to continue to support the families and children of our school who are learning at home during this period.  Parents and carers, you will find some resources to support your child’s learning on the ‘Classes’ page of this website or it will be emailed to you by class teachers.  The teachers will add new tasks and activities regularly so please check in daily to find out what’s new.  We are hoping to keep the children’s learning moving forward the best we can so please help by supporting your child to complete the tasks if you can.  If you have not already done so, please email you child’s class teacher with any work they have completed or just to keep in touch.  Your child's class teacher will have made contact with you already.

Mr Holden, Mrs Walmsley, Mrs Dewhurst or Mrs Evans and a teaching assistant will be in school during the 'Grindleton' week each day as the school is remaining open for some of its pupils.  You can continue to telephone school on 01200 441257 as normal but please respect that your call may not be answered immediately.  Please leave a message and someone will get back to you.  Alternatively, you can email Mr Holden at the following address:

When the children are at Bolton by Bowland, they will be cared for by a teacher and teaching assistant from there. The contact details are 01200 447632 but please respect that your call may not be answered immediately.  Please leave a message and someone will get back to you.  Alternatively, you can email Mr Holden at the following address:

We will miss seeing those of you that are learning at home whilst our school is closed but hope to keep in touch via email, Facebook and this website.   Take good care of yourselves, stay safe and remember to be kind to each other.  We’ll see you all again as soon as we are given the go-ahead to re-open.

With very best wishes,

Mr Holden


to Grindleton CE Primary School

May I take this opportunity to welcome you to Grindleton C.E Primary school and its website.

At Grindleton, we aim to provide a secure, caring and stimulating environment in which children are encouraged to strive to do their best in all aspects of their development.  We believe that courtesy, respect and concern for others are as important as high standards of achievement in academic work.  To this end, we are determined to meet the needs of every child, celebrating the uniqueness of each child. As a school, we work hard to create a lively, engaging and purposeful learning environment in which children will develop a love of learning.

As a church school, we enjoy close links with the church of St. Ambrose and believe that the Christian faith underpins all that we do in school and permeates all aspects of school life.

At Grindleton, we actively encourage parents to become involved in their children's education. We firmly believe that home and school need to work in partnership for the benefit of the children. Working together as a school family, we can ensure that children are both happy and successful at school.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have anything to discuss, if you are considering registering your child for a place at Grindleton, if you would like to arrange a visit to look around the school, or you would like any paper copies of the documents within the website.

Mr Paul Holden

Executive Head Teacher

'The headteacher’s resolute Christian commitment and vision has re-invigorated the school’s distinctive Christian character. This is impacting strongly on all aspects of church school improvement.' SIAMs June 2017
