A letter to the children from Granby Governors:
The school governors were really impressed with the way that you all managed so well in school last Wednesday when the power went down. You all behaved very well for your teachers and looked after each other at a difficult time.
We were very proud to hear that you just got on with your learning and showed a great deal of resilience. We feel that you showed all the signs of our vision for Granby:
Brave enough to try
Well done and warm regards,
Granby is a thriving school where the Governing Board and the staff are dedicated to providing a high standard of education for all of its pupils. We are also committed to providing a wide range of activities and opportunities during and after school to ensure that the children and families enjoy their time at Granby.
Granby is a Victorian school which opened in 1889 and has a fascinating history. Whilst our school building is clearly of its time, we offer contemporary facilities and equipment to provide the best in current educational provision. With just under 500 children on roll, and a staff of nearly 75 people, we are a thriving school in the heart of our local community.
We believe that choosing Granby Primary School is a positive choice to make and we aim to ensure that your child’s years here are both happy and successful. We look forward to working in partnership with you.
We will always try our best to keep school open but there are extreme occasions when we would consider closing the school. This may include a gas escape, heating breakdown, structural problems or substantial snowfall. We will send parents a text, post information on the website and use the City Council's website at http://www.leicester.gov.uk/schools-and-learning/school-and-colleges/school-closures to advise you of any closure.

Encouraging achievement in a safe and caring environment
We are delighted that OFSTED judged Granby as a "GOOD" School, across the all categories, "achievement of pupils", "quality of teaching" and "behaviour and safety of pupils". This is a great result and one which we can now build upon to become an outstanding school
