Ethos and Values

Ethos & Values 


At Greenwood children come first and our priority is to deliver high quality teaching and learning whilst providing rich and enjoyable learning experiences. We want every child to be successful; to reach for success from the very first day they join us and throughout their school lives so when they leave us, they have a love of learning for the rest of their lives. Greenwood Primary School is a warm and happy community where children and adults work hard together to succeed.


At Greenwood Primary School we will strive to:


  • Provide a warm and safe environment for all children and where everyone feels valued
  • Provide a broad, balanced and stimulating curriculum which is relevant to the children’s needs and interests
  • Create a supportive environment that promotes communication, collaboration and reflection
  • Build children’s learning power skills to enable them to reach their full potential and equip them for life-long learning
  • Encourage each individual to take responsibility for his/her behaviour and act as good role models to others
  • Achieve high standards, in all areas of the curriculum, including the physical as well as academic, spiritual and moral development of our children
  • Encourage children to develop a caring and considerate attitude to others, based on mutual respect and understanding
  • Actively encourage all children to develop their skills, gifts and talents, in all areas of the curriculum
  • Encourage children to adopt a healthy lifestyle
  • Provide a supportive culture in which all staff are encouraged to extend, develop and share their expertise





We also place great emphasis on our Core Values: respect, resilience, confidence, honesty, thoughtfulness, understanding, determination, working together and kindness. These values guide our actions and the choices we make. We endeavour to enable our pupils to leave Greenwood having achieved their academic potential and prepared to be responsible citizens of the modern world.
