It was wonderful to see so many of our children dressed up as their favourite book characters on World Book Day. They really enjoyed spending their World Book Day tokens on Waterstones books too!
We are an inclusive school in the heart of the local community and are committed to ensuring that all the children within our care receive quality provision.
You need to apply to Brighton & Hove City Council for a place at our school. Read about joining our school on our website or for general admissions information please visit https://www.brighton-hove.gov.uk/children-and-learning/apply-school/apply-school-place
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: www.parentview.ofsted.gov.uk.
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.
Elm Grove is delighted that its recent Ofsted report confirms its status as ‘Good’. A huge thank you goes to the staff and governor team for their hard work, to the children for showing the school at its best and to all of our parents and carers for their ongoing support. What a great team we are! Everyone is feeling extremely proud.
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.
