Greenfields'flags of hope

We have been patiently waiting for the weather to improve enough for the flags of hope to be put up around our school. Mr Watson has checked the weather forecast and decided that we're going to go for it...don't they look beautiful?

Each flag has a message from a child to remind us to keep a positive mindset, even when times are tough.

Well done children, I think they look spectacular! I hope you enjoy reading them as you collect your children from school!


Exciting news!

We know that for many of our working parents, finding quality childcare for your children which is local and where you know your children will be happy and safe, during the school holidays can be challenging.

We might be able to help!

If you would like to register your interest for our new service, please make sure that you have completed the form and returned to school so that we can begin to contact those families who would like to use our service.
sports day

Sports Day in an usual year...

It is with great sadness that following the announcement made by the Government on Monday, we will not be able to invite families to school for Sports Day this year. It is really very important to us that the children don't miss out on this important school event however. We will be hosting Sports Day on Wednesday 23rd June. So that you don't miss out, we will be taking lots of videos and photos so that you can share the event with us, albeit in a virtual way.

Thank you for your support.

If you would like to sponsor your child to complete the circuit, you can either pledge a sponsor on the form that came home with the letter, or donate on our crowdfunder page using this link.

Please make sure your child comes in their PE kit on Tuesday.


Thank you!

Infection control

Please help us by ensuring that you and your families are also helping us by accessing the twice weekly lateral flow tests (LFT) which are now available to all families and that if you are eligible to take up the offer of a vaccination please do so.

If you, your child or anyone in your household develops symptoms, please make sure you book a test and isolate until you have the results.

Please make sure you read carefully in the information that is included in the letter from public health that is being sent out to families today.

Thank you for your continued support, we have worked so hard together

Reading recommendation

"I like myself!" by Kate Beaumont
High on energy and imagination, this ode to self-esteem encourages kids to appreciate everything about themselves--inside and out. Messy hair? Beaver breath? So what! Here's a little girl who knows what really matters.

Parking on Taylor Avenue

We are respectfully asking parents and carers to park with consideration in our local streets. Please do be careful not to block the driveways of local residents or to park on the footpaths.

Thank you for your support.

Payment for Trips and Visits

As you know we have some really exciting visits and trips happening for children towards the end of this term.

You are now able to pay for these using our cashless school gateway app.

If you would like volunteer to help on one of these trips please email our parents and carers email address with your availability. A big thank you to all those adults who have already offered to help!

...a message from the office...

Mrs Wilson is completing some training courses this term in the afternoons. If you are trying to get in contact with school please either leave a message and Mrs Wilson will get back to you or email the parents and carers email address.

Thank you.
