A Letter from the Principal


Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s),

Choosing a school for your child can be such a challenging time. There are so many questions that race through your mind. However, there is one common goal that everyone wants for their child when they start school - that they will be happy, safe and well educated, no matter which school they attend.


We have a school of happy, safe and well educated children here at Greenhaw Primary and Nursery School. A warm and friendly atmosphere can be felt the moment you walk through the door. All the children know and look out for each other. The children and staff are courteous and respectful towards each other.

We aim for excellence for every child and we believe that together we can achieve this. Our school motto ‘Learn together, achieve together is instilled in all of our children and indeed staff members. We believe in preparing our children for an ever-changing, progressive and technologically advanced society. We aim to develop the concept of active and positive citizenship where our children can contribute to society in a meaningful way both now and in the future.

We place great emphasis on the good relationships between pupils, parents, staff, governors and community as well as the importance of everyone working together to provide the best opportunities for our children.

I am privileged to be principal of Greenhaw Primary and Nursery School. It is a joy and an honour for me to watch the children grow and excel from the minute they join the school until the day they leave.

On a final note, I look forward to working with you and your child in the future.

Kindest regards

Shaun McLaughlin
