Supporting the children of Wideopen to be amazed, be brave, be original and be bold.

Mrs Gemma Robertson - Headteacher
Welcome back
We were thrilled to see so many happy faces on Monday morning, ready for Spring term. As always, we have lots of fun things planned for the children this half term and we are excited to get started.

What a start we've had ...

The children at Greenfields have started the Spring term with a bang. Not only have they been learning lots of new skills in maths, English and science; they've been exploring the great outdoors, getting to grips with atlases in Geography and continuing swimming lessons in year 4. We've also had whole class music lessons including a drum concert put on by our amazingly talented year 6 children! All this in a week; our children work so hard and as always we are very proud of them.
School club
Remember if you've signed your child/children up to a club, the majority of them start next week. If you haven't and are still interested, we still have space in a few so take a look at the School Gateway or contact the school office.
Rhythm time
Rhythm time is an award-winning, developmental music class for babies, toddlers & pre-schoolers. Currently, a rhythm time class runs every Wednesday morning at Greenfields. If you are interested email Wendy.g@rhythmtime.org and if you quote 'Greenfields' you will get your first class free!


School uniform:
  • Navy blue sweatshirt or cardigan with or without school logo
  • Black or dark grey trousers, shorts, pinafores or skirts
  • Black or grey tights
  • Black footwear
  • Navy checked dress for the Summer
PE kit:
  • White polo shirt (you can choose to add the school logo badge if you wish)
  • Plain unbranded black or dark grey jogging bottoms
  • Plain unbranded black or dark grey shorts
  • Black trainers
For safety reasons, we do not allow the children to wear earrings in school, but can provide retainers where this is needed. If your child comes to school wearing earrings we will ask you to put retainers in the following day. If they have PE that day, we will put plasters over their ears for safety reasons.

It's sometimes hard to be your true self and not follow the crowd, but at Greenfields we believe that difference should be celebrated and the most important thing is that you have the confidence to be your true self no matter what.
#Readyforthe world
Tacky the Penguin is a delightful story about being true to yourself--even when it means being a little different from everybody else.
Tacky likes to do splashy cannonballs and greet his friends with a loud, "What's happening?" His fellow penguins find his odd behavior somewhat bothersome.
But when fearsome poachers come to the iceberg hunting for penguins, Tacky's odd ways may be just the thing that saves the day

Ready for the World Awards

Our Ready for the World Awards celebrate when children, in Year 1 - Year 6, have demonstrated outstanding characteristics which will enable them to become successful learners of the future. Over the past two weeks those children who have been awarded a Ready for the World Award are:
Year 1: Harley
Year 2: Archie
Year 5: Naomi & Summer
Year 6: Kian & Jake
Warm welcome

Warm Welcome

Every Monday morning at St Columbas Parish Church in Wideopen between 10am and 12pm, the Church hold a 'warm welcome'. This means that the Church is open to anyone who would like to go along for a hot drink and a scone or a piece of cake. There are craft activities to take part in or if you'd prefer you can simply read a newspaper or do a crossword in the quiet of the Church hall.
From January 2023, our 'toast club' will be free to all who attend. 'Toast club' entry is between 8.15am and 8.30am.
With all of the winter bugs going around at the minute, here's a cribsheet from the UK Health Agency, to support you in knowing when you should keep your child off school ...
