INTRODUCTION ~ Miss Vicki 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 as Head of School in September 2018. Greenleys School is a very special place with our amazing children at the core of everything we do.
At Greenleys Junior School, we believe in celebrating every child as an individual. Our latest Ofsted inspection (2015/16) graded the school as outstanding in all areas. This is a judgement that we are all extremely delighted by.
Our curriculum provides our 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 has been 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 new books!
Greenleys is a school where our exceptional staff challenge and guide our children to reach their full potential. Staff here 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 “learning for life.” Our school has a diverse intake and we are proud to report that children of all abilities make more progress than their national peers. Progress at Greenleys is very strong for all groups of learners.
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,
