Thank you for visiting our school website.
The children, staff, governors and myself are all very proud of our school and we strive to ensure that Greengate is a happy, caring environment where everyone works hard and achieves to their best potential. Our aim is to give children the skills to become life long learners so that they can become the good citizens of the future. Here at Greengate we believe in offering children opportunities to develop individual skills and so we offer a creative curriculum and plenty of opportunities for children to develop their skills both during school and after school. From the moment your child enters the school they will become part of the school community.
At Greengate we are in a strong position to succeed in all aspects of education. We are a well resourced school; we have excellent premises and small class sizes.The school has an open door policy so that you can come and discuss anything you need to. The whole team is very dedicated and by working with you, the parent, we can build a team that will help your child.We are all extremely proud of our achievements no matter how big or small. We understand that if you are deciding on the next four years of your child’s education then you are making a very big decision. Therefore, please visit us and see what we do.

Local business Lumier, who specialise in LED lighting came in to talk to year six children and set them a business challenge. They are to design a new style of LED light fitting, and the winning design will be made up by the company in their workshop.
Mark and Sam gave a presentation about their company, and gave children some ideas about their designs….year six children have been working on them over half-term! Watch this space for what happens next…!
The school council met with Mrs. Jackson and Mr. Leigh this week to discuss issues arising in school, including bullying and new ideas for fund raising. The highlight was a lovely buffet lunch!! If children have any issues or ideas about school they can approach their class council rep who will feed back to the staff involved. Look out for the school council photos here soon!!
Our choir provided an entertaining afternoon of Christmas songs and carols in the Infirmary of Furness Abbey. It was atmospherically lit with candles, and in the dusky twighlight, Greengate gave their renditions of old favourites like Away in a Manger, as well as more modern carols like Starry Night. The children were accompanied by Mrs Sadler and Mrs Hillman on guitars, with Mrs Allen leading the singing. This was a first for Greengate, but a lovely end to two busy weeks of festive events!
Thanks to Fin from year four…he had an idea to raise some money for Save the Children at Christmas. We all wore a Christmas jumper, on what just happened to be the windiest, stormiest day we have had for some time! It was also Christmas dinner day, so we had some real fun!!
