Consultation on the proposal for Greenwood to become an academy has now closed. Governors will consider the consultation responses at a meeting in the next few weeks.

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.

Just had our Anglo Saxon day as part of our topic. I've really enjoyed year 4 so far and can't wait for the rest of it and the things that are yet to come in the last two years at greenwood.
Greenwood Rainbow cafe Exiting Expert teachers New pupils are always welcome Wonderful clubs OK tests (not to hard) Odd sporting activities Devoted to making children achieve their goals in life.

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 !
