Green Meadow Primary School is a two form entry school and each year, we admit up to 60 children into our Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) unit. Children are eligible for admission in the school year in which they are 5 years old.
We have 14 mixed ability classes across EYFS, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. Admission to the school is non-selective and follows Local Authority guidelines.
Four to five year olds will be in one of our Reception classes and will follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum.
Five to seven year olds are in Years 1 and 2 and follow the KS1 National Curriculum. Seven to eleven year olds are in Key Stage 2 and follow the KS2 National Curriculum.
The local authority co-ordinates applications to EYFS which can be made on-line or by completing a Local Authority Preference form before the closing date. The school deals with in-year admissions, so if your child is already at school and you are interested in moving them mid-year, please contact the school office for further details.
At Green Meadow, we have an aspirational, dedicated staff team who are all committed to developing the knowledge, skills and understanding which will enable your child to enjoy learning and achieve success. We work closely with families to enable this to happen and offer whatever support is necessary.
We are lucky to have a large school site. The children from Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 each have their own playgrounds. Our large school field, wooded wildlife area, outdoor classroom and fire pit and class allotment plots enable children to take part in outdoor learning where they find out first hand about nature and caring for the environment, as well as develop self- confidence, problem-solving skills, risk assessment skills and high self-esteem.
We are developing a STEM area in the annexe which houses our brand new lending library, newly equipped Maths classroom, The Studio (a purpose built art and DT studio) and Computer suite.
Our broad and balanced curriculum is creative and fun and is taught through exciting projects both inside and outside of the classroom. We regularly have visitors into school to liven up the learning and parents join in with a variety of workshops.
