Greenfields Community Primary School is a vibrant and forward thinking primary school situated in Wideopen in the North West of the borough of North Tyneside; bordering Northumberland and Newcastle. Our school day runs from 8.40am to 3.15pm in reception to Year 6. In pre-school and nursery, children can stay for a morning session (8.30am-11.30am) or an afternoon session (12.30pm-3.30pm) or a full day (8.30am-3.30pm). We also have wrap around care available for children from nursery to Year 6.
We have bold ambitions for all of our children; Greenfields is a place where children and our community are at the heart of all that happens, a place where every individual’s ability is recognised, developed and rewarded.
Pupils make good progress from their starting points and attain well across a broad range of subjects in comparison with schools nationally. We are committed to providing an outstanding standard of education for our children and as a result encourage them to develop an understanding of how they have gained the knowledge they have. Our children know that their learning is not defined by content but by developing the skill of using what they know, 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, as well as a large Forest School that all children are able to access.
We are incredibly lucky to have extensive school grounds which supports us in delivering a whole curriculum rooted in the benefits of outdoor learning.
We have held the Inclusion Quality Mark School of Excellence Award for a number of years now and in December 2022, were assessed as being a Flagship School for Inclusion. This is something we are very proud of as being an inclusive school is what we strive for.
