About us

At Greenacres we pride ourselves on being a friendly, inclusive school with a caring ethos with children, parents and staff. We have a strong set of values, which are at the heart of everything we do. We firmly believe every child should be taught by only the best teachers, and have the highest of expectations for achievement and behaviour. No matter the children’s starting point, we believe that they can achieve well and as a result make good progress. 

 

We are always seeking new and creative ways of engaging children in learning experiences that motivate and entice them to deepen their understanding and develop a lifelong love of learning. It is our belief that children enjoy learning most when they follow a curriculum which inspires and motivates them and encourages everyone to produce the highest possible outcomes. The success of this approach can be seen in the enjoyment of the children’s learning and their understanding of the needs of others.

Our goal is to ensure that children not only received a curriculum which gives them the skills for later life but that they also have as many experiences as possible. Children undertake regular educational trips and we have plenty of visitors to the school including; birds of prey, Viking experts and African drumming group.

We at Greenacres Primary School and Early Years' Centre strive to promote a positive attitude to learning and relationships, leading to the best possible outcomes for all. We encourage independence in an environment where everyone feels safe to make mistakes and shows support and empathy for each other. We believe in a fully inclusive attitude to all, empowering children and adults alike to respect and value each other, become independent learners and take responsibility for the world in which we live.
