Our expanding School is a happy, vibrant learning community situated in Southend-on-Sea.
Greenways Primary School is situated
only 300m from the beach. We are blessed to have a large site with some
fantastic facilities including our own swimming pool, Forest Schools area, environmental
area and pond as well as two large playing fields.
Our community is a place of learning and
friendship. We provide a happy and nurturing environment, so that as well as
maturing into well-rounded, healthy young people, our children develop a
passion for learning.
Our ethos and values were formed from deep
discussion with all stakeholders: pupils, staff and parents, plus other members
of the Greenways community. These values form the basis of everyday life at
A community where everyone is inclusive, where there is equality of opportunity, a sense of fairness and justice and where everyone acts with integrity and honesty.
A thoughtful and reflective community where everyone takes responsibility for and trusts in one another, where all learners demonstrate hope, empathy and compassion; Where relationships are strong and there is a secure and safe learning environment.
An innovative community where, through encouragement and positivity, everyone can develop their skills independently and collaboratively, and where learners are encouraged to take risks.
A thriving community where we have high expectations of ourselves and each other, where there is a belief that we can all achieve through persistence, determination, resilience and humour.
The Learning in Harmony Trust was formed in September 2014 by Sheringham Primary School and JFK Special School. In 2015, we were joined by two other Newham schools, Upton Cross Primary School and Hartley Primary School, and three further schools joined us in the first term of the 2016-17 school year - Blenheim Primary School and Greenways Primary School, all of which are located in Southend. Drew Primary School, also in Newham, joined us in January 2017. The latest school to join the trust is Temple Sutton Primary and Early Years School March 2018. We do expect to further increase our number of schools and expand our geographical range in the near future, but there is no intention to outgrow our capacity. We want to be big enough to sustainably do all the amazing things we want to do, but small enough to still know each other very well. For us, learning in harmony doesn't mean all schools have to be the same. We are bound together by our belief that by working in partnership as one organisation we can make a significant difference to the children and young people in our schools. We are proud to have both similarities and differences as schools, and see this diversity as a strength. Our shared values unite us.
With 8 schools situated in East London and in coastal Essex, staff working within our Trust have the opportunity to embrace a diverse range of experiences, from inner city multi-ethnic Newham down to Southend on Sea, only a 45 minute train journey away. Our range of schools provide a number of rich experiences for staff and students alike. With a number of good and outstanding Infant, Junior and Primary Schools, as well as a fantastic split-site Special School, our staff need look no further when it comes to career development.
