Welcome to Gorsefield. We are a GOOD school!

Why is Gorsefield so special?

I am very proud to be the Principal of Gorsefield Primary School, working in partnership with Forward as One CE Academy and supported by a highly skilled and dedicated team of teachers and support staff. Gorsefield Primary School is a two-form entry primary school with an integrated nursery and pre-school. Gorsefield is a thriving school situated in the heart of the very community to which it serves.

Gorsefield Primary School cannot only offer the very best standard of education to all of our children but a positive, safe and welcoming learning environment to all. We aspire to fulfill the Gorsefield mission to INSPIRE and CHALLENGE all children and adults to EXCEL in everything they do, now and well-beyond their primary schooling.

At Gorsefield Primary School, we believe that there is no limit to what our children (and adults!) can achieve; we strongly believe in providing all children with exciting, creative and meaningful learning experiences, which inspire hope, ignite the imagination and instill a love of learning.

At Gorsefield, we believe it is crucial to involve the children, their families and the wider community as partners in education. Children learn best when there are strong links between home and school and so here, at Gorsefield we encourage families to work in partnership with us to successfully help each child to achieve their full potential in order ensure success.

At Gorsefield, we are also dedicated to building a whole school community, which thrives on mutual respect, values and positive relationships. All members of the Gorsefield Team ensure to provide a calm and stimulating environment where ‘green’ behaviour and mutual respect is modelled by everyone and where everyone is valued, always.

I hope you enjoy finding out more about our school by browsing our website. Visits to school are encouraged and welcomed: we would be delighted to show you around our school. We also pride ourselves on open communications, so if you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact school or visit the Gorsefield online Guestbook via the school website.

I look forward to meeting you.
