Sir Robert Geffery's is a Church of England Voluntary Aided primary school and as such we have a distinctly Christian ethos and vision
Children live and breathe our Christian values and know our mission statement that ‘With God’s help we can be the best we can be’. We integrate daily worship into each school day – this might be in class prayers, assemblies and songs and hymns. We find that children respond well to the values and guidance that this Christian ethos gives them and there is a nurturing, caring and family ‘feel’ to the school, about which all members of the school community are proud. Please read on to find out more.
At Sir Robert Geffery’s we value the various communities in which we live, work and learn each day. This includes the community within each class and the importance of the social and emotional side to learning that is so important to each child’s all round development.
Over the last decade, we have worked with our partner school in Uganda called Hillside School, Ikona. Staff have taken part in an exchange visit on different occasions and children communicate with each other between schools through sending letters describing their daily lives and hopes for the future
