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

Mrs Ele Dobson- Headteacher

The Big Ask...

Within our 'be bold' value we are teaching children to stand up, to have a voice and to be heard; to exercise their democratic rights.

Next week, we'll be asking all the children at Greenfields to take part in 'The Big Ask'; this is the largest ever survey of children and young people in England by the Commissioner for Children. The information is going to be used to show the government what children think, and what children need to live happier lives.

Why children should take part

This is your child's chance to have their say on the things that matter to them. You can review the questions by going to:

There is also a survey for parents and carers so that you can have your voice heard too.

...we're all capable of changing a situation!


The Big Pedal

Well done to all of our children and families who made the extra special effort this week to walk, cycle or scoot to school this week. Look at the lovely view at the back of our school which you would have seen on Thursday. We hope that it has inspired you to ditch the car and get active in the morning to help wake up your body and your brain.

Over the course of this week we've completed a massive...

1455 journeys this week!

Well done everyone!

Reading recommendation

"Voices of the Future - stories from around the World." by The Children of the World

A wonderful anthology of eight stories addressing children's rights and sustainable development, written by child authors from all around the world and produced in conjunction with UNESCO's Voices of Future Generations initiative.

UNESCO's Voices of Future Generations initiative works to empower children all around the world. The stories in this book are written by children aged between 8 and 12 from every corner of the globe


PE uniform

Please don't forget that for PE, our school uniform is a white unbranded t-shirt and blue/black shorts or tracksuit trousers which are unbranded.

Football strips are not permitted.

Thank you for your support.
After the very challenging 12 months we all have faced, I know some families may be looking ahead and thinking about holidays for the future- please see the school calendar with term dates for the academic year 2021/22. Please note the training days when school will be closed to children. We are respectfully requesting families not to book holidays during term time- they will not be authorised. I am sure that you would agree with me; it is really very important that your children are in school for the whole of the year.


If any of our families have any old android phones that they have finished with, which may be lurking in a drawer, we would love you to donate them to us for our Year 4 computing learning all about data loggers. Any phones donated will be wiped of data so that they are safe for the children to use.
Thank you!

New School uniform

You will of course all remember that in September, with the help of the children, we changed our school logo and values statements.

I know that many parents have already started to think about next school year. Over the course of the next few weeks we will be bringing you some information about our new uniform for September. We hope that the changes we are bringing will make uniform much more affordable and readily available to all of our families.

In the meantime, if your child has out grown their green sweatshirt, please do not replace it; please do contact us as we have some that you can use. Alternatively, if you would like to buy a sweatshirt, we are asking parents to replace with a plain NAVY sweatshirt or cardigan.

Currently, Asda is stocking blue sweatshirts- 2 sweatshirts for £5.


Drop off and collection times - please make sure that you are keeping to your bubble stagger time for collection and drop offs.

Times are as follows:
Year 6, 5, 4 and Reception 8:45am - 3:05pm

Year 3, 2, 1
8:55am - 3:15pm

The 50p breakfast club begins at 8:15am- we will take children up until 8:30am, when the doors will be closed.

Late collection of children - please make sure that you are on time to collect our children at the end of the day. We have no facility to put your child into our out of hours provision at the moment due to current restrictions around bubble groups.

Contacting school - Please don't forget, there are lots of ways you can get in contact with school. Email is often the best and quicked way to resolve your query. We're here to help!
