Greenways Primary School is a happy and vibrant learning community that lives and breathes its values. Our children benefit from large playing fields, a vast Forest Schools & Outdoor Learning area and our own Swimming Pool, this helps us provide a broad, exciting curriculum that inspires our learners to achieve academically but also to encourage their creativity.

What do people say about our school?
Pupils at Greenways receive a good quality of education. Leaders share the school vision explicitly with governors and staff. They have a clear understanding of what they want pupils to be able to do when they leave the school, and the role they want pupils to play in society.
Pupils with SEND are nurtured and helped to succeed by experienced staff. Some
pupils require specialist support, and teachers adapt the curriculum so that they can
achieve as well as they can.
Reception children are happy and safe. Parents are full of praise for the way that their children are helped to settle quickly. Leaders work with families, agencies and pre-schools before children start.
The teaching of French is very strong, as is the teaching of music. Pupils in the
school’s orchestra have opportunities to travel abroad to perform.
