Since opening in September 2005, Greenfields has had two OFSTED inspections.
The first took place in February 2008. We were delighted that, after the school had only been open for a little over two and a half years, the school at that stage was judged to be a "Good" school. The Inspectors noted that :
"This is a good school, moving forward in all aspects of its work. Through good leadership and management, the pupils have adjusted well to their new learning environment. They are responding to the high expectations of staff and the good quality learning experiences available to them. Central to all that the school does is the celebration of its multi-ethnicity. Throughout the day, pupils of different cultures work harmoniously in an atmosphere of support and respect. From their first day at school, they feel safe and secure because care, guidance and support of pupils are good. The progress of pupils who find learning difficult is accelerated by prompt identification of their individual needs and the good support of teaching assistants."

Greenfields then had an "interim assessment" by Ofsted in April 2011 which concluded that the school's performance since the last inspection had been sustained and therefore an inspection would be deferred for a couple of years.
The interim assessment is available below.
The second OFSTED inspection took place in March 2013 and the school was judged to be "Outstanding" in all areas - Leadership and Management, Teaching and Learning, Behaviour and Safety and Achievement of Pupils.
