At Greenhaugh First School we aim to provide a welcoming and supportive atmosphere where staff and children work together to create a happy, secure, caring and stimulating environment. This will be in partnership with parents, governors and the wider community. All children are given the opportunity to achieve their full potential, to develop responsibility, self-esteem, respect for others and their environment. This will be achieved through a broad and balanced curriculum in both an indoor and outdoor environment, with high quality teaching and learning experiences that will encourage curiosity, develop enquiring minds and promote their confidence to try new challenges.
This will be achieved in a well resourced school that encourages creativity and co-operation and where individual, group and whole school efforts are valued and celebrated.
