Greenwood Primary & Nursery School

Welcome to

Greenwood Primary & Nursery School

Bringing out the best in everyone

Greenwood in the Flying High Trust

I am very proud to introduce you to a school in which we all work really hard to bring out the best in each other but especially our very special young people.


Our Greenwood Team follows 7  very simple values that are embedded within our school: 


  • Aspiration
  • Pride
  • Perseverance 
  • Responsibility 
  • Confidence 
  • Creativity 
  • Enjoyment 


We welcome visitors to our school and I am always a very proud head teacher when I show them round. If you would like a tour please call me on the school number to arrange one.


We have a brilliant team of staff who always go above and beyond to make the school experience special. Greenwood pupils love coming to school and leave with happy memories, self confidence, a love of learning and pride in all they have achieved.


Our Governors are a committed team of individuals who are our critical friends, ensuring Greenwood strives for success. Parents and carers are V. I. Ps (Very Important Partners) in ensuring success for their children. We try to make sure they have all the knowledge they need to do this well through good communication and equally we are always there to listen when our partners need to talk too.

School Evaluation

We are extremely proud of all the achievements at our school no matter how small they may seem! We celebrate the aspiration of our children and the pride they take in themselves and our school. Our children persevere and enjoy their learning where they are able to develop in to confident individuals. Our children achieve so much with their creative flair and show a great responsibility that comes with being part of Team Greenwood!

The Flying High Trust


The Flying High Trust is a partnership of schools across Nottinghamshire, Nottingham City and Derbyshire. Schools work together to ensure we are relentless in ensuring our children receive the best possible opportunities and experiences. This is achieved through a true collaboration where all decisions centre on children and schools are empowered to adopt best practice, adapt it within the context of each school and fly!


Mission statement:


Working together, relentless in our pursuit of excellence to create the best schools in the universe, where we make every day count.




  • An unshakeable commitment to a school led system, where every member of staff is empowered to improve our partnership and shape the futures of our children.
  • A determination to develop talent, delivered through a professional continuum available for all staff.
  • Relentless in our pursuit of excellence for every child, school and community.




Our values underpin all that we do, putting children at the heart of every decision:

  • Aspiration
  • Creativity
  • Confidence
  • Enjoyment
  • Perseverance
  • Pride
  • Responsibility


We aim for our schools to be the best in the universe!


By the end of their primary education we aim for all of our children to be ready for secondary school and be inspired to be the best they can be through our seven values. The values are fundamental to everything the Trust represents; they run through all elements of school improvement and are understood and owned by all members of the school community. Schools with their own clear USP linked to their values blend together the Trust values with those held so dear within each individual school.


As a Trust Partnership our expectation is that all schools:


  • Demonstrate a restlessness to continually improve, to never stand still, with the ultimate aim of providing the best opportunities and experiences for our children.
  • Strive to ensure every child fulfils their potential regardless of potential barriers to learning.
  • Commit to become an outstanding, self-improving school and to support the profession and
  • development of all schools within the partnership.
  • Commit to a school-led system.
  • Commit to the values, principles, policies and procedures of the Trust.
  • To ultimately strive to be the best school in the Universe.


In our schools you will see we work together to:


  • Ensure schools feel connected to the Trust whilst maintaining their unique qualities, character and relationship with their community.
  • Ensure high quality teaching and learning.
  • Engage with our families and wider communities to raise aspiration for all.
  • Develop the whole child and create inquisitive learners.
  • Enable all children to be confident, building on strengths and improving in areas of need.
  • Enable children to understand the part they play in the world in the future - as a positive citizen and a driver of business and enterprise.
  • Support the development of all staff to be the best they can be and to realise their career potential.
