Welcome to Greet
Our old building – the upper phase – dates from 1892. Our new building – the middle phase dates from 2011.
Our lower phase building dates from 1989 – almost 100 years’ difference. The only three century school in Birmingham!
Welcome from Mr S Mason - Head of School
A warm welcome to Greet Primary School – an outstanding school in the heart of Sparkhill, Birmingham. Here you will find a dedicated and talented team of staff, hard-working and engaging pupils along with supportive and proud parents. Together we are a team – together we are Greet!
Greet nurtures inquisitive, determined, respectful and helpful individuals who are well-prepared for the future in an interconnected world. This is achieved through a range of rich and meaningful experiences and opportunities which reflect and benefit our community.
We have high expectations. Academic achievement is important and our pupils attain high standards against all national benchmarks.
Our Teaching School designation in 2011 enables us to bring together the best practice from our own school alongside those in the Teaching School Alliance to share with others beyond our school gates.
From September 2016 we converted to academy status and became a founding member of Create Partnership Trust. Together with our family of schools, Conway Primary, Hodge Hill Primary and Brookfields Primary we strive to be the best we can be with achievement for all.
This website is designed to give a flavour of our school as well as useful information. Please feel free to visit or get in touch.
Welcome message from Pat Smart, CEO/Executive Headteacher
Conway Primary School and Greet Primary School formed Create Partnership Trust in September 2016. We were joined in January 2017 by our sponsored school, Hodge Hill Primary School and Brookfields Primary in November 2018. Create is a multi-academy trust which is committed to achieving the best for all children across the three schools through a close collaborative partnership.
The three broad aims of the Trust are:
- To maintain current strengths and create secure and successful futures for all stakeholders in Create Partnership Trust schools, based on a collaborative culture with shared values and clear moral purpose.
- To ensure that all schools in Create Partnership Trust become forward thinking and dynamic centres of learning excellence.
- To develop strong working partnerships internally and externally, which have a positive impact on children's achievement, safety and well-being.
Greet, Conway, Hodge Hill and Brookfields Primary work closely together - developing policies, sharing good practice and supporting and challenging each other. We want to see every child receive a broad and balanced education, be happy and safe and well prepared for moving on to their secondary school.
We are also very committed to developing our high quality staff and leaders who work hard individually and in their teams. The Trust supports their skills development and helps them to identify a career path so that they can be even more effective in ensuring that the children make best progress personally, academically and socially.
I am the CEO/Executive Headteacher with responsibility for the whole of the Trust - the three schools and Greet Teaching School which has a special designation to be outward-facing in order to bring more teachers into the profession, to develop leaders and to provide support to other schools in Birmingham by working closely with external partners, such as the Birmingham Education Partnership.
We are building Create by focusing on trusting relationships as the root of all our work. We have high expectations of everyone and we are never complacent - constantly striving to improve on our previous best. We are creating futures for everyone - our staff, our families and communities and, of course, our children.
We look forward to a positive future, great collective achievement and working with our schools, families and communities in partnership. We are stronger together.
