Welcome back to a new school year. The staff have been working hard throughout the summer preparing the school and all the exciting lessons for the children and we are ready!

Thank you to all the parents and carers for the new uniforms which make the children look so smart and part of Team Greenwood. Please ensure everything is labelled with your child's name so it does not end up in the lost property mountain this year.

Look out for the latest newsletter that will be available soon.

Mrs Harvey x

 New 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!


Our Year 6 boys team have again won the George Abbott Shield after a thrilling extra time victory against Brierley Forest at their ground.

Team Greenwood is proud of you all!!

Greenwood Graduation 2015




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.

Kind Regards
Mrs Kim Harvey
Head Teacher



Admission Arrangements


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 2014-205"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

Deanna Bruce - Graduated(a couple of months ago)

Greenwood was where my life started, my friendships grew and many possibilities unfolded. And I'm happy I went to this school. Just looking back at my Star Of The Week awards brings me to tears. I miss Greenwood so much I would do anything to relive my years there. All the teachers, diner ladies and the headteacher Mrs Harvey were like a family to me. I wish I could see all of them again. Being in Ashfield is hard, but looking back to this school makes me want to do the best I can. I left Greenwood determined and brave, but sometimes I miss being the young, kinda careless me back in Greenwood. If I ever get the chance to visit Greenwood again, I would and, knowing me, I would cry having the feeling of being young again. Just writing this is bring back all the memories I had and making me cry. I miss every single one of you xx - Deanna
