Greswold is an inclusive learning community where we believe every child really does matter. At Greswold we aspire to excellence. We want our pupils to be enthusiastic about their learning; be curious about the world around them and try their best in everything they do. Our ethos encourages children to embrace risks and follow their imagination. We expect our pupils to show respect for each other and take a pride in their school community. Our teaching staff work hard to ensure children enjoy their learning and make good progress. Together with our wider community, which includes the PTA, we believe that Greswold provides our pupils with a solid foundation.
Our site is located about half a mile from Solihull town centre. We are fortunate to have plenty of outdoor space for the children to learn within and enjoy at playtimes. Greswold’s grounds include large fields, a nature area, gardening area, outdoor classroom and a dedicated outdoor area for our Foundation Key Stage (FKS).
Children often start their time at Greswold in our Nursery which caters for up to 60 children in either a morning or afternoon session. Our childcare facility, Greswold Greyhounds Childcare, also offers additional wrap around provision for parents including 30 hours Nursery. Our school is currently undergoing the process of expanding from two forms of entry (60 children per year) to three forms of entry (90 children per year) to cater for growing demand. In September 2018 Greswold will be accepting an intake of 90 children into our Reception and we will have 90 in Years 1, 2, 3 and 4. In subsequent years we will be welcoming three new classes in Reception each September, with our school growing as the children work their way through the year groups until we are fully three form in 2021.
Children normally enter school at the beginning of the academic year in September, although if places allow, we are happy to welcome newcomers midway through the year. Please see our admission information for further details about places. More information about Greswold is available in the pages below.
