We hope you all have a good break. School re-opens on Tuesday 22nd April. Happy Easter!
Well done to all our Greenwood Stars for another fantastic fundraising effort.
Greenwood raised £431.43 for Sport Relief by wearing wellies and onesies and
completing THE SPORT RELIEF MILE walking around our school field 8 times!!!
Welcome to the brand new Greenwood Primary & Nursery School Website!
I am very proud to introduce you to a school in which we all work really hard to bring out the best in each other but especially our very special young people.
Our Greenwood Team follows 4 very simple rules
Take care of ourselves
Take care of each other
Take care of our school
Always do our best!
We welcome visitors to our school and I am always a very proud head teacher when I show them round. If you would like a tour please call me on the school number to arrange one.
We have a brilliant team of staff who always go above and beyond to make the school experience special. Greenwood pupils love coming to school and leave with happy memories, self confidence, a love of learning and pride in all they have achieved.
Our Governors are a committed team of individuals who are our critical friends, ensuring Greenwood strives for success. Parents and carers are V. I. Ps (Very Important Partners) in ensuring success for their children. We try to make sure they have all the knowledge they need to do this well through good communication and equally we are always there to listen when our partners need to talk too.
Please explore all our pages, enjoy our photos (Many courtesy of Spliced Photography) and if you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me by email or telephone and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
Mrs Kim Harvey
It's time to Shop For Schools - please!
Calling all Mansfield shoppers- we need your help!
We have again been selected to enter the Shop for Schools promotion at The Four Seasons Centre. If parents take their receipts for purchases in the centre to the reception desk outside Debenhams they will be given points vouchers to the value of their receipt (£1 = 1 point) to put into their school’s collection box. The more voucher points the school gets the better their chance of winning £3000 to spend on equipment! The runner up receives £1000 too. You can get bonus tokens each week in the Chad and you can get them from Kick Start and MTFC in the Community football activities or attending the Easter activities in the Four Seasons. Triple points are given on Sundays too. The promotion runs from Saturday 29th March to Tuesday 29th April. We would love to win!
Just for taking part we receive a Class Skipfit set.
I might just have to nip to Mansfield on a Sunday to pay for my Summer Holiday J

Admission to Greenwood is managed by the Local Authority. If you would like your child to attend our school you must contact the Local Authority to apply. If your child is due to start full time school (in the academic year in which they are 5) you will receive notification from the Local Authority with instructions how to do this online. Please don’t worry if you are not computer confident, we can help. We hold special surgeries just after you receive these to explain the admission process and help you complete your application if you wish. Admissions other than at the start of the academic year must also go through the Local Authority. Please contact them if you wish to move your child as we may not have spaces available in the year group you require. Currently we are full in most year groups in school.
For First Admissions (Into Foundation 2:)
In the event of over-subscription, the following criteria will be applied, in priority order, to determine which applications will be granted:
1. Children who are looked after.
2. Children, who live in the catchment area and who, at the time of admission, will have a brother or sister attending the school.
3. Other children who live in the catchment area.
4. Children who live outside the catchment area and who, at the time of admission will have a brother or sister attending the school.
5. Other children who live outside the catchment area.
In the event of over-subscription within any criterion, preference will normally be given to children who live nearest to the school as the crow flies. Distances are measured from the entrance to the child’s home to the principal entrance of the main administrative building of the school using the County Council’s distance measuring software.
Special consideration may be given to applications that are supported by written evidence from a doctor, social worker or other relevant professional giving reasons why the school is the only school which could cater for the child’s particular needs. This might include medical needs, mobility support needs, special educational needs or other social circumstances. The evidence must be presented at the time of application.
The appropriate designated officers will consider written evidence provided to decide whether the application may be processed as special circumstances. Admission under special circumstances will have priority over all but the first numbered criterion.
Admissions to year groups other than the intake year
Applications for admission to other year groups will normally be considered in relation to the published admission limit (60 pupils), which applied when the year group was first admitted to the school, although infant class size restrictions will also need to be considered. If places are available within the year group, applications will be considered in accordance with the above admission criteria. If places are available, the child will normally be admitted to the school.
Further guidance on the way in which applications are dealt with including:
• Preferences for more than one school
• Late applications
• The way waiting lists are maintained and used
Guidance on all these processes can be found in Nottinghamshire County Council’s “Admission Guide 2013-4"booklet.

Please contact the admissions team on 01623 433499
Planned Admission number 2013/2014: 60
Current Number on Roll: 480 including Foundation One

Our school is amazing if we have problems the teachers always help us. The Staff always make sure we are doing our best. The children at this school are well behaved, if you're not then the staff always deal with It in the best ways for the children. We go to lots of school trips to help us with our learning I really enjoyed going to the Hollocaust centre because we got to learn even more about ww2 and met one of the Jewish survivors ,who was Bernard. I'm so glad my parents put me at this school - its the best thing that's ever happened to me. Also if you come to our school and you will be new there's no need to worry because all of the children at this school in all of the classes are very welcome to visitors. I just want to say thank you to Mrs Harvey and all of the staff for making my time at Greenwood special and I'm so sad to be leaving this year to go to Ashfield school. Thank You xx

Online payments are something we have looked into but added costs for payments online and the number of schools who have run up debts using this system have put us off. We will continue to look for other methods of doing this but at the moment it is not possible, sorry.
Is there any way that we could pay for school dinners online please? Either to school, or through the Council website? Saves having to find the right amount of money each week! Thanks x
Greenwood is the best school I have been to.
