WELCOME TO GREENSTED
INFANT SCHOOL & NURSERY
At Greensted Infant School and Nursery we want to ensure that all pupils feel safe and happy in the learning environment. Respect for the individual and the learning environment are at the heart of our school. Success is achieved when every individual feels valued and included in the school community. Our approach is inclusive and applies to all pupils.
"Very pleased with my son's progress at the School. He enjoys coming to class and
loves school! Thank you" Yr 1 parent
We recognise that every child is unique and has his or her own educational, emotional and social needs. The school works to meet those needs and develop the child’s full potential.
We encourage pupils to develop and express their own opinions. They have input into making school/class/playground rules and negotiate rewards and sanctions. They vote for pupils to represent them on the School Council.
"A has really grown in confidence in Year 2 and made some great personal achievements" Yr 2 parent
We are proud that as a school we have worked towards and achieved many nationally recognised awards. Amongst these are the Healthy Schools Award, ActiveMark and the Early Years and Primary Basic Skills Award.
