I would like to offer you a warm welcome to Gosfield Community Primary School, a small village school which serves the children of Gosfield and the surrounding area.
We hope that this website will give you a good insight into our school, its aims, vision and ethos. If you are already parents and carers of children at the school I am sure you will find the information extremely useful as well as being able to celebrate some of the work produced by your child and their class. If you are visitors we hope you will be able to see what a brilliant school this is and how much the children learn and enjoy their time with us.
We are very proud of our school, the staff, parents, governors and most importantly the children. I am a firm believer in children learning by experience, getting involved in their own learning and investigating for themselves. It is important that children learn to take risks and one of the most important things that we do for them is to give them confidence in their learning and their abilities and allow them to make mistakes in safe and secure surroundings. I believe that if children are happy in their environment then they will learn much more and much faster and they will be prepared to take their learning and understanding much further.
We are very lucky here to have wonderful grounds in which children can learn and grow. Combined with this we have a large network of support ranging from parents who give their time freely to the friends association (FRoGS) to governors and the wider community. This support allows us to take children’s learning experiences further and deeper and means that by the end of their time with us they are strong-minded, confident and independent learners. Gosfield provides a good standard of all-round education and I hope very much that you and your child will enjoy their time with us.
