About the School

In welcoming visitors to our school, we invite them to experience the warmth and friendliness of the children and the staff.

Sir Robert Geffery’s School has a fine modern building which was completed in 1998. It is built in a square around an open courtyard known as the Bible Garden and is set in grounds which, together with the school field and farm, cover an area of 31⁄2 acres.

The seven classrooms are bright, spacious and well resourced with lovely outlooks over the local countryside. They are complemented by a music room, two libraries and two ‘quiet rooms’ for smaller group work. The Bible Garden is sometimes used for teaching and other events in fine weather. The grounds form an exciting outside learning environment with a teaching area within the farm, a nature walk and two trim trails for break periods.

There is a large assembly hall which is attached to a well-equipped kitchen. The inside of the hall opens out onto a stage enabling it to be used as a theatre, whilst another side opens onto a small chapel. The hall is also fitted with PE equipment and can be used as a gymnasium.

We aim to provide an environment in which children can develop with confidence and imagination, and in which learning is a really enjoyable experience.

We also seek to stimulate and inspire children, to develop an enthusiasm which they can carry with them into their secondary education. With this enthusiasm they can also develop their good citizenship within society in general.

We aim to teach Christian values and beliefs which are expressed through a loving, caring and safe environment - and with a family atmosphere that encourages a sense of belonging.

In this fully inclusive school, each child is a highly valued individual, each with his or her own unique characteristics and abilities. With each one we seek to celebrate the achievement of his or her full potential.

Our vision is to develop a lasting love, enthusiasm and zest for learning. This is achieved within an exciting curriculum, which encourages the children to think critically and have the courage to question injustices. It also gives them a willingness to take the lead and look out for others.

We hope that our children will develop self-confidence and self-esteem, linked with respect for others and for the environment. We also hope that, by providing a wide range of experiences, we will equip them for sustainable living in the 21st Century.

The children are encouraged to be independent and are taught self-discipline, as well as the need to recognise interdependence and co-operation when working with others.

TO PROVIDE A SAFE, CARING, HAPPY AND STABLE SCHOOL IN WHICH TO GUIDE CHILDREN THROUGH THEIR PERSONAL, MORAL AND SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT.
