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.

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.
