Greenfields "Best School In The City"!
We are absolutely delighted that Greenfields has recently been judged to be the "Best School in the City of Nottingham" according to a recent report in the Nottingham Post.
The report is based on www.SchoolGuide.co.uk which compiles a list of schools based on various criteria (Free School Meals, Ofsted judgements, attendance, KS2 SATs results, etc) and is was great to see Greenfields listed in the top 5 schools and then as "best" school overall.

Greenfields Congratulated by David Laws MP
We were delighted to receive a letter last month from David Laws, MP and Misnister of State for Schools, congratulating us on our KS2 SATs results last year.
Mr Laws was particularly impressed with the improvements made in the KS2 results of 'disadvantaged' pupils.
Only around a hundred schools across the country per year are chosen for this recognition so we are obviously delighted that our hard work and the attainment of the children is recognised by the Government.
Please have a look at the letter below as well as a letter from Pat Fielding, Director of Education for Nottingham, congratulating us on our KS2 SATs success.
"Greenfields Live!" CD Released!
We are delighted to let you know that the new "Greenfields Live!" CD has now been released!
The CD, recorded last Summer and featuring all of the children in school at that time, features twelve songs.
To launch the CD, we held a special concert in school on Tuesday 11th November. At the concert, we performed many of the songs from the CD and a few extra ones too!
Copies of the CD are now from the Office for a bargain intorductory price of £3 - it will make a great Christmas present for family members and friends! But, do hurry as the price will go up to it's normal prce of £5 from December 1st!
I am incredibly grateful to Catrin Jones, our fantastic music teacher for helping us sing the songs so well and also to Benjamin McCourt who very kindly gave up his time to record the singing and for making the CD possible.
We are really proud of all of the hard work that has gone in to recording the songs and are sure that you will love hearing the children sing.
