INTRODUCTION ~ Miss V Thurstance
Head of School
Welcome to Greenleys Junior and thank you for showing an interest in our school.
My name is Vicki Thurstance and I am extremely proud to have joined Greenleys Junior School as Head of School in September 2018. Greenleys Junior School is a very special place with our amazing children at the core of everything we do.
Our latest Ofsted inspection (2015/16) graded the school as outstanding in all areas. This is a judgement that we are very proud of and we are continuing to work hard to maintain it!
Our carefully planned ‘G.I.V.E.R.S.’ curriculum (Global citizens, Independent, confident learners, Vocabulary immersed, Experience rich, Respectful & well equipped for being part of their community, Secondary ready) provides children with wonderful opportunities including the use of our Immersive Room which allows children to experience venturing into rainforests and travelling to the very edge of our solar system without leaving the school grounds! Reading for pleasure is also an area of focus here at Greenleys and our exciting reading areas (the garden shed being my particular favourite) provide children with an opportunity to get excited about books!
Greenleys Junior is a school where our exceptional staff challenge and guide our children to reach their full potential. Staff are creative in their teaching methods and have developed an enriching and engaging curriculum to suit the needs of our children. Here at Greenleys we truly believe in our mission statement “Learning for Life.” Our school has a diverse intake and we are proud to report that children of all abilities usually make more progress than their national peers.
Our very experienced Learning Mentor works alongside children, who, for a variety of different reasons, might be struggling with an area of school or home life. The children and families here at Greenleys really value this support. Our Learning Mentor also leads our free breakfast club.
Visits to our school are warmly welcomed. We have an amazing school with talented staff, a fully supportive governing body and, most importantly we have wonderful children and families. If you would like your child to be a part of our exciting school then please visit the ‘joining us’ section for further details.
I look forward to welcoming you to Greenleys Junior School,
