Greatwood primary 20 (20) (Custom)

The education at Greatwood Community Primary and Nursery School is effective and humane; our students undergo a sustained apprenticeship in humanity, one that may last a lifetime.


Our approach to teaching and learning inspires our children and engages them in their learning.

Our aim is for children to be explorers; asking questions like: What do you think...? Why do you think...? How do you think...? Our Curriculum allows the children to be curious, playful and seek to delve beneath the surface of things. It allows our children to work in depth, giving them the time they need to consolidate learning. It also places direct experiences at the centre of our curriculum and allows our children to become life-long learners.

The staff here have created  "an earthy, warm and very engaging learning environment" (J.Plews CEO NSAT) 

Reciprocity, exchange and dialogue lie at the heart of the successful education on offer here.

We have spent a significant amount of time developing a curriculum that has been planned carefully for OUR children, THEIR interests and NEEDS.
