Greenfields boasts an exciting curriculum that focuses on delivering the statutory National Curriculum through contexts that are real and meaningful to our children. At the cornerstone of this is bringing the curriculum to life with ‘real life’ experiences and visits.

Linking with our values, all of our children go on at least six trips each year. Our visits are carefully planned to ensure our children see the very best our local area has to offer. When we are able to take the children on trips in line with government regulations, parents are always welcome to join us.

We always welcome many visitors into school who work with our children in various different ways, for example Gosforth Nature Reserve Rangers worked with Year 1 this term to develop our Forest School Area, we had a Poet join us for the day and we have links with Newcastle University Scientists who come into school to deliver workshops throughout KS1 and KS2.

Currently the children in Years 4, 5 and 6 get the chance to go on a school residential. Year 4 go to Robinwood for two nights and three days, Year 5 go to Dukeshouse Wood for three nights and our Year 6 children go to Ford Castle. The children love taking part in residentials and get so much out of them that a school day can’t give them.

All school visits take place in accordance with North Tyneside Educational Visits regulations. All staff have been trained in completing the necessary forms to ensure the health and safety of your children whilst on school visits.

You can help us by making sure you complete the consent forms with all the necessary medical and contact details and return them to school in plenty of time before your child’s visit.
