Welcome to Greenways Primary School website. This is a brief introduction to our school and will hopefully answer some of your initial questions about the educational experience we offer children. I would warmly invite you to visit us to see our school first hand.
The philosophy of Greenways Primary School is simple: we aim to foster individual growth, to provide children with skills that will be valuable in life and to challenge and stimulate their intellect, enabling them to achieve high academic levels.
Greenways Primary School is characterised by its happy, friendly outlook developed through partnership between home and school in an atmosphere of mutual respect and co-operation. This results in children who feel secure and enables them to grow in confidence and capability.
Education begins at birth and continues throughout life. The primary school is just one phase in the process. We hope that we can, with your cooperation, play our part effectively in the development of happy individuals who can be adaptable, resourceful and resilient in a rapidly changing world.

Keep doing what you are doing, loving, valuing nurturing each individual child so that they feel free to reach their potential. We've had one child who had blossomed and been full prepared for secondary school life with all it's new challenges - it was all of the wonderful range of experiences he had at Greenways that enabled that transition to go so well. Most importantly, it was the individual nurturing by all staff that enriched his life. Thank you.

They display high satisfaction when talking about what they gain from visiting religious places of worship, historical sites and taking part in a good range of musical and sports clubs that the school provides.
Due to highly positive relationships between staff and pupils, all children including those of different backgrounds and abilities feel safe and happy at the school.
