Geoffrey Field are a large infant school, with ten classes, including a Nursery class. The school is set in extensive and attractive grounds, giving children plenty of space to learn and play. In fact, each year group has its own dedicated outdoor learning area. We are a 3 form entry school with 10 classes (including a Nursery class) and 42 staff.
We provide a broad curriculum whilst maintaining a particular focus on reading. This we believe is important both for its own sake in terns of enjoyment and developing imagination but also in accessing all subjects.
The school opened in 1949 and was later officially opened by Alderman Geoffrey Field, who had served as Vice-Chairman of the Education Committee.
The school is park of the Whitley Excellence Cluster (WEC) and supports ASPIRE 2.
We have close links with:
• ABC to Read – volunteers come into school weekly
• All Whitley schools and especially with Geoffrey Field Junior School
• Reading University
