Greenfields Community Primary School is a larger than average, vibrant and forward thinking primary school situated in the North West of the borough of North Tyneside.
We have high expectations of all of our children; Greenfields is a place where children are at the heart of all that happens and every individual’s ability is recognised, developed and rewarded. We believe that all children are entitled to achieve their potential and we encourage all children to be the best that they can be and to earn ‘Personal Bests’.
Pupils make good progress from their starting points and attain well in comparison with schools nationally. At the end of Key Stage 2, in 2014 and in 2015, there was no statistically better performing ‘similar school’ within 75 miles of our school. We are committed to providing an exceptional standard of education for our children and as a result encourage them to develop a growth mindset, a sense of responsibility and a confidence in their own ability to succeed; essential qualities that will equip them for lifelong learning.
Greenfields Community Primary School is well equipped with a large hall and stage, a gym and access to a privately run swimming pool on site. We have extensive school grounds, including a separate Nursery & Pre-School building, 3 large play areas, a vegetable patch, sensory garden and wildlife areas – all of which are put to good use as teaching areas. In addition, all children have the opportunity to explore outdoor learning at ‘Forest School’ which we have as a permanent feature within our own school grounds.
Greenfields has achieved accreditation in various national initiatives:
- International School Award
- Basic Skills Quality Mark
- Artsmark Gold
- Activemark in PE
- National Healthy School Award
- Eco Schools Award (Silver)
- Schools Financial Management Standard
As an Eco School, we are proud of our Solar PV panel installations that have generated thousands of kWh of electricity. Our curriculum reflects this commitment to sustainability and renewable technologies.
