A message to our pupils and their families from all staff at GFIS:
Documents to read linked to the wider reopening of GFIS: GFIS Behaviour Policy Appendix This document has been amended to reflect adjustments linked to the wider reopening of school. It details expectations linked to behaviour and safety.
This document may help parents to know more about plans for the wider reopening of school. This would also be a useful document to share with your child to help prepare them for returning to school and know more about what school will look like.
Nursery Admissions for September 2020:
Nursery admissions for September 2020 have now been allocated and all parents of children who have been allocated a space have been contacted. If you would like to apply for a Nursery place for admission in the future please contact the school office.
Welcome to Geoffrey Field Infant School
We are a large Infant school situated within a diverse community in the south of Reading. The school is set in extensive and attractive grounds, giving the pupils plenty of space to learn and play. Each year group benefits from its own dedicated outdoor teaching and learning area.
We have approximately 320 pupils on roll across 10 classes, including a Nursery class. Pupils in the Nursery attend for 15 hours each week for either a morning or an afternoon session.
