Welcome to our school.

We are very proud of everything we achieve with our children and believe that by working in partnership with parents and
children, everyone can achieve their best in a safe and happy environment.

Our school was last inspected in May 2014. Their report identified many strengths including the quality of teaching and learning and standards achieved by the children.     

Teaching is at least good and much is outstanding.  Excellent relationships between adults and pupils create an atmosphere where pupils want to try hard and do well.

Pupils behave exceptionally well in and around school.  They are polite and respectful to adults and each other. 

 

Greenholm School is a two-form entry community primary school with just over 410 children. The children and staff are from a wide range of cultures, backgrounds and abilities and we believe that this supports all children in learning from and about each other. The school is very focused on ensuring that all children achieve their very best and enjoy their learning experiences to the full. Our code of conduct is clear, supports all children in developing life skills and should be followed by children, parents and staff when in school.

These are :-

  • We are polite
  • We respect and help each other
  • We tell the truth
  • We try our best
  • We take responsibility for our own actions.

 

The school comprises of a main two-story block and two separate blocks for year 1 and for years 5 and 6. The main building houses eight classrooms, the school library, offices , a large ICT suite and two halls. The year 1 block has two classrooms and toilet facilities. The Year 5 and 6 block has four classrooms, a shared learning hall, storeroom, parents room and toilets. There is also a separate block of two demountable classrooms for the Before and After school club. The main areas of the school are accessible to the disabled as are the two new buildings. The Reception classrooms have an enclosed outdoor learning area and toilets within their classrooms. The school enjoys the benefits of extensive grounds, playgrounds with climbing frames and well-established areas of habitat. The grounds are a valuable resource for all outdoor learning as well as for play.


We have a community room, which is used by parent helpers and for workshops as well as for a drop in for parents. The Playhouse, our before and after school club, is based within the school and uses the schools facilities for their activities. It is run by school staff and is well attended. Places are allocated through the school office. We have an extensive library, which is well stocked and children are encouraged to borrow books on a weekly basis. The school has a fully fitted ICT suite with 32 computers which children access to support learning in all areas of the curriculum. In addition to this each classroom also has one or two computers and there is a laptop suite which children can access at any time.

In September 2014, we are moving to three forms of entry which is very exciting for us.    We are hoping to have seven new classrooms built ready for action in September 2015.
