Mrs Emma Snowden

Our beloved teacher Mrs Emma Snowden sadly passed away on 1st June. All parents and carers have received an email. 

Our thoughts are with her family at this incredibly sad time. Mrs Snowden loved teaching and she loved teaching our Greenwood Stars. She cared so much for all those who were lucky enough to be taught by her.  She really was our 'Miss Honey'

We now have a book of condolence in which we can place any cards, letters or messages from parents, children and staff and governors. Please send anything you would like us to include, to the school office so that we can then give it to her family. As yet there is no information on Emma's funeral. Once we have any more information about this we will let you know.

We have already decided that one tribute will be that a new library area which will be created next year will be named after Mrs Snowden who always promoted a love of reading as our English Lead. Thank you to those who have placed ribbons, flowers or messages on our Memory Tree. They are beautiful. 

Mrs Snowden loved working with the families in the Greenwood community. She didn't mind her long journey to and from work as she wanted to make a difference every day. Her class name 'Meerkats' was chosen by her as she recognised that they were like a big family on a visit to the zoo. This is what she created in her classroom. This was evident every day in the love and attention she gave to all those in her care. Greenwood was her extended family.

Mrs Snowden will never be forgotten. Nobody ever forgets a good teacher, Mrs Snowden was simply the best.

 Greenwood Primary & Nursery School Vision Statement

“Bringing out the BEST in everyone”

At Greenwood Primary and Nursery School we aim to empower every child to grow to meet their full potential and realise their dreams in a warm, respectful and caring environment. To develop a moral code that enables each child to have empathy, humility and respect for themselves and others to ensure they can play a positive role within their school, local, national and global communities.

We all work together and understand that our strive for excellence needs to be relentless; that our children have the self-confidence to attempt to achieve anything and the resilience to persevere with the challenges of today and the unknown challenges of the future.

Teamwork plays a crucial role in all we do but we also encourage independence to develop the confidence to take risks and make their own decisions

We aim to make the school the very heart of our community to offer Kirkby in Ashfield the very best education, support, care and high expectations possible; forming mutually beneficial links.

“Look back with pride and forward with confidence”
