Thank You!

We are blown away by the generosity and thoughtfulness of our Y6 parents, who have given staff this beautiful artwork and hamper, along with a very touching card. We were already feeling pretty emotional sending our fab Snowy Owls on their way so this tipped a few of us over the edge! What a thoughtful gesture; thank you all so much.

Merry Christmas from all the staff at Anston Greenlands!

The Great Greenlands Conker Championships 2018!

The inaugural Great Greenlands Conker Championships were a huge success! We had some strict rules (soaking in vinegar or baking them was allowed, but varnishing was a definite no!) and the competition was fierce. In the end, one champion emerged from each class. Congratulations to the winners!

Admissions Consultation

Periodically, we are required to review our admissions procedures in consultation with the school community. We do not intend to make any changes to admissions procedures. Please note, all admissions are handled by Rotherham Local Authority.

If you wish to discuss admissions, please contact us in school.

Many thanks.


We’re delighted to finally be able to share our Ofsted letter with you! As you’ll see, we’ve been judged as “good”; we’re extremely pleased with the letter, which reflects some of the very positive feedback we received on the day and offers practical next steps. We feel that it celebrates many of the strengths of our school, and every member of the Greenlands community – children, parents, carers, staff and governors – should feel proud. Thank you for being part of our team!

The Year in Pictures

What a year it’s been! Thank you to all of our children and families. This video should give you an idea of the things we got up to in 2016-17…

Have a fantastic summer. See you on the other side!

Letter Formation

Have you ever wanted to know how we teach letter formation in school? Mrs. Forbes and Mrs. Taylor have created a handy guide to show you exactly how we do it! Click here to visit the Letter Formation page, or find it under Learning Links in the menu bar.

Here’s an example of what you’ll find there:

We hope you find this useful!

Update from Boggle Hole!

We’re all having a fantastic time here at Boggle Hole! We may only have been here for two days but we’ve already done so much: our cliff-top walk got us off to a great start on Monday and since then we’ve been rock pooling, learnt about smugglers in Robin Hood’s Bay and even toasted marshmallows on a campfire! The children have all settled in brilliantly and are having an exciting, memorable time. To cap things off, the food has been excellent!

This is just a small selection of photos to show you what we’ve been up to. There will be plenty more to come!
