At Greet we want our children to understand there are no limits to what they can achieve. We have high expectations of and for our pupils and are committed to delivering an exceptional education that sets them up for future success. We do this through our core values:
Achieving excellence - Pursue excellence in all areas of life.
Social intelligence - Have self-worth and act with confidence, empathy and integrity.
Ethical lives - Make decisions about daily life which take into account ethics and moral values.
Our school mission and values form the drumbeat of day to day life at Greet. They are the driving forces behind our curriculum design.
Our curriculum has the pupils of Greet at its heart. It is rooted in our school, our families and our local community whilst ensuring learners are also taught about national and global issues. We endeavour to give our pupils a strong sense of their own identity and their place in the world, and to respect the same for others. They will know the story of humankind, its place in history and how they can have a positive impact on the future, so they are fully prepared for the challenges of the 21st Century.
We take our pupils on an exciting voyage of discovery during their time with us. This journey starts as we learn together about themselves, their families, their homes and our school, before gradually travelling further afield: from Sparkhill, down the Stratford Road into Birmingham... and beyond! As the pupils grow and we travel further away from Greet in distance we also travel further away in time. Through the literature we read, our curriculum units and our trips and experiences, learners explore Britain and the wider world, finding out about significant people, places and events from the past and present. Pupils remember what they have learnt during their time with us because they have made a connection between their learning and their lives.
