Welcome to Greenvale Primary School

As your first introduction to our school we hope this website gives you a flavour of the thriving learning environment we provide at Greenvale Primary School.

We are conscious of the great trust that parents place in us, we promise to provide for every child’s individual needs, both academically and socially in order that all our children achieve their personal best.

Our school is very much a ‘family community’ where every child feels safe and happy. We offer a wide range of experiences to encourage intellectual growth. We aim to create a love of learning that provides a firm foundation for our children’s future development.

Our school strives for excellence – and we are justly proud of the confidence shown in us by OFSTED and the Basic Skills Agency who have awarded us their prestigious Quality Mark. We have achieved the “Healthy School Award” and the Active Mark – national recognition of the schools success in aiming to prepare our pupils for adult life.

We value the partnership between parents, pupils, teachers and the wider community and we hope that by working together we will ensure the best possible opportunities for progress.
