Greenfields Community School is situated in the heart of the Meadows area of Nottingham. It is one of three primary schools which serve this area of the inner city. Almost 75% of the school comes from minority ethnic backgrounds, the main ethnic group being Pakistani Muslim children. The school is extremely fortunate to have children from such a large variety of backgrounds. Altogether, more than twenty-eight languages are spoken within the school. The number on role at present is 210. There are six classes in school which comprise single year-group classes. The Foundation Unit caters for Nursery and Reception children. In March 2020, Greenfields was again inspected by OFSTED. At this point, just a matter of months after the introduction of the new, revised OFSTED framework, Greenfields was judged to be a "Good school with many Outstanding Features". Of the five judgements, three were "Outstanding" (“Personal development," "Leadership and management" and "Early years provision") and two (“Overall effectiveness" and "Behaviour and attitudes") were judged to be "Good." The post is a great opportunity for somebody to help us further develop a great and inspirational school for the local Meadows community. We are delighted that Ofsted (March 2020) reported that Greenfields is a “good” school with three “Outstanding” judgements. Greenfields is proud to serve a rich multi-ethnic community and offers exciting challenges. It has also been awarded the Food for Life Gold Award for its commitment to outside and food education and also the Wellbeing for Schools Award. We have very high expectations of our pupils’ achievement, work together on developing the curriculum and value the support of parents and the local community.
