We are delighted to announce that both Greenfield Arts and Greenfield Community College have been nominated for a national award.

Greenfield Arts have been recognised for their contributions to family focused arts activities, bringing creativity to local communities.  In this 20th birthday year they are reflecting upon the many activities, projects and events they have developed and led. This nomination is fantastic recognition for the work that has taken place and continues to be developed to support the wider community to be creative, explore ideas and express themselves.

The Fantastic for Families Awards are organised by Family Arts Campaign, an organisation that encourages engagement with the community and the arts.  Greenfield Arts are perfectly aligned with their ethos supporting young people and families to participate in arts with many free events and activities that support engagement without barriers.  Activities such as their free art club, free holiday activities, projects such as Storymakers and Creative Communities and the offer of regular high-quality live performances for all to enjoy.

Greenfield Community College have been recognised for their consistent and proactive approach to valuing the importance of student voice and the structure in place that has encouraged this to thrive and impact upon student learning and school improvement.

This award is organised by Votes for Schools an award-winning platform that gives students a voice on the issues that affect them the most.  Greenfield Community College are nominated for the Student Voice Awards that recognise and celebrate high quality and inspiring practice in schools.

The strength of student voice is an integral part of decision making and school life at Greenfield.  Student Leaders have a strong presence leading assemblies, facilitating whole school staff training and have even attended council meetings and have designed and led their own school student conference.  The student communications team, The Newshounds, have worked hard to keep issues and initiatives on top of agendas and have been an excellent conduit to involve the whole school in positive initiatives.

We wish nominees at both Greenfield Arts and Greenfield Community College every success with their award nominations. You can find out more by visiting our websites at Greenfieldschool.net and Greenfield-Arts.co.uk
