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.

GREENSTED INFANT SCHOOL & NURSERY IS PROUD TO BE A PART OF THE LEE CHAPEL
Lee Chapel Primary School,
Half term begins on Friday 22nd October. School re-opens for all children on Monday 1st November.
There is currently a public consultation regarding the proposal to close Greensted Infant School & Nursery and re-open as a Primary School on 1st September 2022. The consultation period opened on 4th October 2021 and will close on 22nd November 2021. Click here for further information.
We are not required to send classes home to self-isolate in the event of positive cases in class. If your child shows symptoms, of either a new & persistent cough, high temperature or loss of taste or smell, then they will be required to have a PCR test before they can return to school.
if your child is identified by Test and Trace as a close contact of someone who tests positive, then they will be advised to have a PCR test but will not be required to self-isolate whilst waiting for the result.
Should your child test positive and need to self-isolate, please click here for information about our Remote Learning Offer.
If you have any difficulties accessing the Home Learning, please contact the school office immediately.
