Dear Parents and Carers
Welcome to Sir Robert Geffery’s School
We would like to extend a warm welcome to all the children, their families, friends, and members of the local community who are central to the life of Sir Robert Geffery’s School. At SRG we cherish and nurture every child, recognising their unique, individual interests, talents and strengths, which make our school a happy and exciting place to learn and work. Throughout their time here we ensure that they will have the opportunity to fulfil their potential academically, socially and spiritually. SRG has a ‘family’ atmosphere where we value the crucial partnership between parents and school and we are a true part of the Landrake community.
Our children learn and show our school values of creation, forgiveness, trust, love, peace, thankfulness, service and friendship as they go about their learning each day, inside and outside of the classroom. We aim to create a living Christian school environment where we strive for each child to develop a passion for learning and a sense of excitement in their own achievement and that of others. Children love the recognition that they or their peers get on a regular basis for a variety of things such as showing our values, for excellent effort and learning behaviours (e.g. resilience, collaboration).
We are a Primary Academy with a Christian ethos and have close links with St. Michael’s church in the village. Several members of The Worshipful Company of Ironmongers (who founded the school in 1704) are actively involved in the governance of the school and they have a wealth of experience in education and business. They work together with the local governors to oversee the strategic leadership and direction of the school. Please check our ‘governors’ page for more information.
If you are looking for a school place for your child, please give our office a call and see our admission arrangements which can be found in the Document Library under Policies. We would welcome your visit to our wonderful school where you can see our motto of ‘a school for enthusiasts’ in action.
Thank you for taking the time to browse our website and welcome to our school,
