Our school has an ‘in it together’ attitude to learning.
We believe in letting parents and carers know how and what we are learning.
We encourage two-way dialogue between school and home and offer support through parents’ evenings, workshops and curriculum evenings, learning diaries such as reading records and invitations to our assemblies.
We also believe that home learning can help reinforce what we learn at school.
All of our children receive home learning activities and our teachers are careful to make sure that it is kept at an appropriate level.
Greenfields Primary School and Nursery is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of young people. Providing a safe environment for all our students, staff and visitors is at the upmost importance to us.

Greenfields’ recruitment and selection procedures specify that all adults working with children have an enhanced DBS disclosure. This is to ensure that all unsuitable people are prevented from working with children.
We have robust procedures for admitting anyone into the school who will work with children and any visitor without a DBS (formerly CRB) certificate, including parents, is accompanied at all times.
All visitors are provided with safeguarding information, which outlines the procedure for reporting any concerns they may have.
Anyone witnessing a disclosure or feeling concern is directed to immediately record the details on one of the school’s internal concern forms (red forms/white forms) and to return it to one of the DSLs as soon as possible.
- Please keep Visitor badge on at all times
The visitor badge shows the children you are a visitor and not a member of staff. If we have seen your DBS check you will have a green visitor badge. If we have not seen a DBS check, you will have a red badge.
- All Teaching Assistants are First Aid Trained
First Aid boxes are available in each class room.

The internet is an incredibly positive place for education, keeping in touch and entertainment but of course young people need to learn to use it well, to keep safe and to not always take things at face value.
To support them, and to support their families, we've started a blog called Stay Safe Online - please do have a look and leave us a comment, especially if you can share any useful top tips for keeping safe, or point us to a useful web site or video to help share positive safety messages.
Our performance against other schools can be found via the Department for Education’s School Performance Table.
