Description of the school

Greenhill Primary is a larger than average school that is increasing in size in response to local demand. All the pupils are from minority ethnic groups for whom English is not the first language at home. Very few pupils are able to speak English when they start school. There are slightly more pupils from Pakistani backgrounds than Bangladeshi heritages. The proportion of pupils with learning difficulties and/or disabilities is well above average as is the proportion of pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals. The school provides for the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) through morning and afternoon Nursery sessions and two Reception classes. The school has achieved many awards, including Investors in People, Basic Skills Agency Quality Mark, Eco Schools Green Flag, Healthy School’s Award, Artsmark and Sports Activemark.
