Welcome to Geoffrey Field Infant School

We 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 provide a broad curriculum whilst maintaining a particular focus on reading. This we believe is important both for its own sake in terms of enjoyment and developing imagination but also in accessing all subjects.
