Extra-curricular Activities

We have a broad range of extra-curricular activities available for our pupils, including sport, drama, languages and music. View our list of activities.

If you are a registered parent or carer of a pupil at the school (including pupils on sick leave or who are temporarily excluded), you can tell us your views about the school by completing Ofsted’s online survey, Ofsted Parent View, at:
Ofsted Parent View asks for your opinion on some aspects of your child’s school, including the progress made by your child, the quality of teaching, how the school deals with bullying and poor behaviour. It also provides a free-text box for you to make additional comments, if you wish. The inspectors will use the online survey responses when inspecting your child’s school. Written comments can also be sent to the school in a sealed envelope, marked confidential and addressed to the inspection team.

Desert Oasis Playground Plans

We are currently planning for renovations of the top playground at Elm Grove. The concept is ‘Desert Oasis’. The design is an interpretation of a desert landscape with elements of rock, and water, with a nod to treasure islands, riverbed oasis, obstacle course etc.

This project will mainly be funded by the PTA.

At Elm Grove our main line of communication to parents and carers is SchoolPing. To request your SchoolPing log-in details please contact the school office.
