Mr Byrne

This is my tenth year teaching in Birmingham schools but my first year at Kings Rise. In my roles as Year 6 teacher and Assistant Principal I am looking forward to working with pupils and parents, and helping to create a really vibrant and exciting curriculum. In addition to my work at school I work on educational projects with Unicef and the Royal society of Arts in Birmingham and, in the rare moments I have to myself, I like to go running or read a good book!

Mr Grewcock

This is my seventh year at Kings Rise and after a year off (for good behaviour) I'm back in Year 6, helping them with their transition towards Secondary School.  I know both Year 6 classes this year will be making great progress with the team of staff we have and I look forward to being a part of it.  I'll be working with both Year 6 classes, so I expect to be very busy!  I love music, movies, reading and gaming, as well as walking my dog and spending time with friends and family.


Every half term we will produce a topic overview to provide you with information about the topics that the pupils in Year 6 will be focusing on.

Reading Journals: 
This year, we are promoting reading throughout the school and each child has been given a reading journal.  We would encourage the children to read for between 10 and 15 minutes every day and record a comment about their reading in their journals.  Please ensure these are in school every day.



As part of our Healthy Schools focus, all children require a clearly labelled bottle of fresh drinking water every day.

Pupils are allowed to bring squash or flavoured water for consumption at lunchtimes only. 

High sugar content drinks, such as energy drinks and fizzy pop, are not allowed.

Thank you for your cooperation with our school policy.

May we also remind you that children should be bringing a healthy snack for their break. High sugar snacks and crisps are not allowed. We love fruit!!
