I am delighted as Principal to welcome you to the Green Gates Academy website. We hope that what you see and read will give you some insights into what makes Green Gates a happy school that is always looking “To do more and do it better”.
Our vision for Green Gates is that it is a happy, friendly, safe and encouraging place where everyone feels welcome and valued; a place where achievement is expected and is celebrated; a place where all members of the school community care about each other and are kind to each other; a place where behaviour is good and where success of all kinds is noticed so we can take pride in all the work we are doing.
We are very lucky to have an extremely dedicated and supportive staff team who work very hard to provide the best opportunities for all our pupils in a safe and happy school environment. We aim to build the skills, knowledge and positive attitudes necessary to help all our pupils become responsible, respectful and tolerant citizens of the future.
Many visitors to the school comment on the warm, welcome atmosphere that they receive and the friendly atmosphere that exists in school.We like to think that this is because we have lovely staff who value the special children that come to our school, and work very hard to give them a rich and fulfilling experience; helping them become the very best that they can be. We are a school where the child is at the heart of what we do and have the best interests of all our children when making decisions about the school.
The positive support of our parents and the wider community is very important to us all and we maintain an open and welcoming environment where we can work in partnership for the benefit of our pupils.
This website is an important link in the way we communicate all that we do here at Green Gates. It provides us with a wonderful opportunity to share and celebrate the life and work of our pupils.
If you have any suggestions, comments or questions, please do not hesitate to contact us or arrange a visit to our school to meet the staff and children; you will receive a very warm welcome.
Mrs Melanie Lyons
