Our next INSET Day is Friday 12th February.
School will be closed to all pupils on this day and break up for half term.
Children return to school on Monday 22nd February.
Please have a look at all our pages to discover what it's like at Greenwood.
We hope you like it.
Safeguarding & Social Networking Apps
I have been asked by the Local Authority to make you aware of this article on Nottinghamshire Police’s website.
This is in response to a safeguarding notification by a Primary School regarding a social networking app which the children at the school were using, which is named in the article. The advice we have received from the Local Authority is that this app is not the only one where concerns have been raised.
The article asks parents to be vigilant regarding what their children are accessing online and makes suggestions about privacy settings and parental settings on devices. This is particularly relevant as children may receive devices for Christmas through which they can access the internet.
More advice may be found at www.thinkuknow.co.uk
Our MENUS are now on the Parents Tab - School Meals Link at the top of this page! We hope you like them.
We have taken feedback from the children and parents/carers as to what they would like and used all their ideas. As we now manage our own catering service we can respond quickly to children's preferences.
Please let me have feedback using the comments box opposite or send me an email.
We would love all our children to enjoy a delicious meal every day at our new RAINBOW CAFE!

Welcome to the 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!
As OFSTED said in November 2014, ''Patience, respect and courtesy are hallmarks of this school''
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:)
Having a place in our Nursery does not guarantee you will be given a place in Foundation 2. We are also not allowed to provide supporting evidence for any application to full-time school.
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.
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 2016-2017"booklet.
Contact for Admissions
Please contact the admissions team on 01623 433499
Planned Admission number 2014-2015: 60
Current Number on Roll: 486 including Foundation One

Congratulations to the amazing Greenwood School Choir who have performed superbly tonight at Ashfield School. Thanks also go to our parents and families who are always there cheering us on ! I am so proud of the Choir ,who have gone from strength to strength over the last few months. We recently sang at the Kirkby Festival and definitely wowed the crowds! The senior choir members have also attended a singing workshop with TV's Mark deLisser. I know that 2016 will bring even more musical opportunities to Greenwood. Well done our Greenwood stars ! (That includes all our lovely choir staff too ! ) Mrs G XXXX

Greenwood gets up to some really exciting events. We have just recently visited the Panto and the Christmas Fair has just taken place. I'm excited for the disco and talent show and other exciting events that will happen at Greenwood throughout the year.
The teachers are really kind at Greenwood. Always offering everyone a hand. The trips, residentials and opportunities in school are fantastic. Lots of interesting clubs as well.
Year six is amazing especially because I have the same teacher as last year every day I am learning new things I love it. Mrs Laycock is one of the funniest teachers I have had not mentioning Mr Green and a lot more.
