Greythorn Primary School is housed in a modern building, constructed between 1988 and 2000. The accommodation has been completely remodelled in recent years to provide bright and attractive individual classrooms.

Greythorn Primary School is situated to the west of the Loughborough Road, West Bridgford, and provides education for children mainly from the “Compton Acres” estate and the neighbouring area. Some parents also choose to send their children to Greythorn from other local areas.

Greythorn Primary School has a strong positive ethos as a “Kind and Caring Learning Community” with a positive culture of respect. We are a rich multicultural community and celebrate the diversity of the many different cultures represented. We are committed to providing our children with an engaging, skills based, creative curriculum which engages and challenges children of all abilities.

 
On Tuesday afternoon Mrs Platts took a group of children to Ruddington to take part in the Rushcliffe Cross Country Relay competition. As always, they impressed her with not only their determination and sportsmanship, but also with their support for each other. They had a very strong wind and a nasty hill to do battle with, but all of the children attacked both with true grit. We are very proud of them all, well done! Mrs Platts would like to say a special thank you to the Grandads, Grandmas, Mums and Dads (and Isla our honorary mascot) who helped with transport and cheered the children on. We couldn’t do it without you.

On Friday 6th February 2015, two children from Greythorn went with Miss Pooley and Mr Campbell to the Pupil Parliament meeting. Rosie in Year 6 and Will in Year 5 had been voted in by their peers to represent Greythorn in the Pupil Parliament as part of the Rushcliffe Learning Alliance.

The pupils went into the Council Chambers at County Hall and asked Anthony May, the Chief Executive of Nottinghamshire County Council, questions about education in Rushcliffe. They then joined other pupils in a debate about education in Rushcliffe. Will was lucky to be selected as the speaker for the next meeting.

The whole of KS2 went to support Team GB at an International Speed Skating Competition on Friday 9th January. It was an amazing experience which included Mexican Waves, spot prizes for some of the children’s banners, amazing racing from the skaters and the loudest cheers from the children whenever a GB athlete got to the front of the line. We were so impressed with all of our children who were great ambassadors for Greythorn. We were rewarded in one of the last races of the day with a massive win by Elise Christie, who narrowly missed out on several medals at the Winter Olympics. Farrell Treacy, who sadly fell in his final, tweeted to thank all of Greythorn for their great support. It was certainly a day to remember, my ears are still ringing!

World Champion, Jonathan Eley, and British Champion, Farrell Treacy, very kindly took some time out of their very busy training schedules to deliver a talk to KS2 in December. They spoke about their experiences as skating stars, which included Jonathan being flag bearer for the GB team at the Sochi winter Olympics. One child had a go at holding the flag in one hand with a straight arm and everyone had a chance to hold a World Championship Gold medal! We were also presented with a signed photograph of Jonathan in action, which now has pride of place above the office window.

We are all really looking forward to Friday 9th January when KS2 are going to watch the skaters in action and, hopefully, cheer them on to victory.

Mrs Platts had the pleasure of taking Georgie and Ethan to represent Greythorn at a cross country competition at Rushcliffe Country Park in December. The first twelve finishers represent Rushcliffe area at the County Schools Championships in February. It was the day of the ‘weather bomb’, so not ideal running conditions, but this did not put either of them off. They both ran really well and should be proud of their achievements. Ethan finished mid field and Georgie battled away and was very happy to receive a medal for third place. Well done both of you and good luck to Georgie in the County Championships.

Thank you so much for your support in our recent festive events in school, we feel privileged to work with such a giving community. We had our Christmas jumper day on Friday which raised £229 for Save the Children. This was followed by our cake sale which was run by a group of Year 6 girls and raised £100 for Text Santa. Many thanks also to FOGSA who ran another successful Christmas Fair and raised over £1600!
