Equality at Greenfields
At Greenfields Community Primary School, we are committed to ensuring equality of education and opportunity for all pupils, staff, parents and carers receiving services from the school, irrespective of race, gender, disability, faith or religion or socio-economic background. We aim to develop a culture of inclusion and diversity in which all those connected to the school feel proud of their identity and able to participate fully in school life.
The achievement of pupils will be monitored by race, gender and special educational need/disability and we will use this data to support pupils, raise standards and ensure inclusive teaching. We will tackle discrimination by the positive promotion of equality, challenging bullying and stereotypes and creating an environment which champions respect for all. At Greenfields Community Primary School, we believe that diversity is a strength, which should be respected and celebrated by all those who learn, teach and visit here.

Our first Learning Experience across the school this academic year was based around preparing for and celebrating the Macmillan Coffee Morning. We decided to link it with the European Day of Languages, with each class preparing treats for the Coffee Morning from different countries and cultures. Take a look at the photographs below for a taster of our fantastic learning across these four weeks!
