Keeping safe on school grounds

Changes to dropping off and collecting children

Over the first week, we have been monitoring how the morning and afternoon works with parents and children on site.  It is important to remember that the largest danger of spreading the virus is not from child to child, it is adult to adult - and on school grounds this means when collecting and picking up your child.  Therefore, we have amended our procedures to keep you and your families as safe as possible in line with government guidance.

From Monday 14th September we will be implementing the following:

Only 1 adult per family on the school site

Where possible, siblings to wait outside of the school 

Keep left when entering and leaving the school site by the main entrance following the yellow arrows – enter through the small gate – exit through the large gates

Remember you can wear a mask on site if you feel this is suitable for you

Keep at least 1m plus distance away from each other

Please wait along the path for collection at the end of the day.

 Doors Open - 8:40am

Register – 8:50am

Finish times:

Reception and Year 1 Classes- 2:45pm

Year 2 Classes - 2:50pm

Classroom doors are open from 8.40am for you to drop off your child. These eases congestion and helps those of you with other schools to drop off your other children. 

Please remember that any child that arrives from 9am is late. Classroom doors will close at 8.50am, so please go to the office after this time. 

Parents are not allowed to come right up to classroom doors for dropping off or collecting.


Our school day timings have been amended in line with DfE guidance for re-opening the school in September to all pupils.

Please remember that these changes are to keep you and your family safe during these ever changing times.  


Welcome from the Head Teacher, Mrs Allnutt

Welcome to the Greenvale Primary website. If you are a parent or carer or a visitor to our site, the website has everything you will need to know, from dates, to uniform rules, from class pages to galleries so that we can share the learning that goes on in Greenvale everyday.

Greenvale is a happy, friendly school in the heart of the local community. We believe that children need to play, explore, observe, investigate, repeat, copy, problem solve and represent in order to come to terms with themselves, other people and the world around.

We are lucky to have a staff of wonderfully inspiring and dedicated teachers and teaching assistants, who not only have high expectations in all areas of the curriculum, but are also supportive of every child's needs.

Greenvale values the first years in school and recognises them as some of the most important. We aim to ensure that our children have a 'can do' attitude towards learning, through an environment that enables them to feel happy, safe, valued and secure as they grow, learn and develop.

The most important message for our school is summed up in our vision and aims and our school values:

School should be lively and it should be a place where children and adults develop into amazing people through mutual support and challenge. We recognise that parents and carers are the children’s first educators, and strive to work in close partnership, building on the children’s own experiences. 

We believe that Greenvale Primary School offers every opportunity for your child as they begin their school career and education into life long learning.

If you would like more information, have any questions or wish to arrange a visit please contact us, or email us direct on office@greenvale.medway.sch.uk


Greenvale Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
