Our Mission

WHAT'S OUR GOAL

Welcome to our school!

At Greenfield School we pride ourselves on our ability to ‘Learn together’ with ‘Aspiration, Imagination and Determination’. We continually find innovative ways to make learning fun, engaging as well as challenging.

All learners are valued as individuals; we celebrate diversity and respect children regardless of ability, gender, religion or ethnicity. We strive to provide a rich learning environment where everyone’s achievements can be celebrated and individual progress is recognised.

Greenfield school is a truly inclusive learning environment. Our strength lies in our commitment to provide learning opportunities for all.

Our mission statement of ‘Opening the doors to the future’ is strong which enables pupils to make great progress. We also aim to provide learning opportunities that enable pupils to take responsibility for their own learning and encourage them to take calculated risks to help develop their own skills.

Our school building provides a rich learning environment for pupils to enjoy. We have up-to-date ICT to support learners as well as open grounds which enables Forest School activities to happen. This all contributes to pupils enjoying school and helps their confidence grow.

We are committed to working in partnership with parents and welcome our parents to take advantage of the many informal and formal opportunities to enhance the home-school relationship. This includes school celebrations, curriculum events and pupil annual reviews.

We hope that you find our website informative and we invite you to visit the school to experience its excellence first hand.
