As the Headteacher of Greenfields Primary School, it is with very warm wishes I welcome you to our school. Choosing the right school for your child can be one of the most difficult decisions you may ever have to make. Let us make it easy for you…

Are you ready to jump in and make a splash? At Greenfields we do things differently. 

If you choose Greenfields for your child, our committed and highly skilled staff understand that even from the earliest age, all that our children do, learn and experience leads towards an aspirational future of their own making.

If you choose Greenfields for your child, we will support them in developing an appreciation for the wider world; to wonder at incredible sights, plan for grand adventures; showing them the endless possibilities that their future has to offer. Children at Greenfields are given the opportunities, skills and knowledge to be curious, enabling them to ‘dream big.’  

If you choose Greenfields for your child, we will instil in them the confidence and courage to know they have a choice in their future; developing a wider sense of responsibility to the environment and society in which they live and those beyond their local experience. 

Our web-site should give you a taste of the exciting and innovative work that goes on in our school, as well as providing regular updated information; please do not hesitate to contact us if you require any other information. 

I hope that the information you see and read inspires you to visit us and find out a little bit more, maybe even jump in with us! We would be delighted to show you around our school and answer any questions you might have.

Thank you for showing an interest in our school by visiting our website.

Rather than to think about the challenges of this year, I just wanted to reflect with you all how exceptional your children have been throughout. How exceptional […]

Children, we’re making you a promise…

Perhaps predictably, I can’t help but share with you the scenes of sheer delight from children, staff and our parents at Powburn this week.  Seeing the children throwing themselves into the activities with such limitless enthusiasm reminded me what we are all about here at Greenfields. We all know how important it is to give […]

“…it could be worse…”

…Well…that’s been a bit of a different end to the week, hasn’t it? For me, it has felt like a week of the highest highs and yet also the lowest lows. Yesterday was a day of complete contrasts; not 3 hours had passed since we had had to take the saddening decision to temporarily close […]

High Hedges…

This is a fabulous picture of our Muddy Bairns exploring part of our stunning grounds. Look how high the hedges and wild greenery around the children has grown. We ask our grounds maintenance team to mow us lots of ‘secret’ pathways like this in the long grass; it’s exciting to explore and it gives the […]
