About Us

Thank you for showing an interest in our school. We hope our website gives you a flavour of our friendly and exciting environment.   Our motto is “all learning together”.  At Geoffrey Field we believe everyone – children and adults - are on a lifelong learning journey that should be challenging and enjoyable.  We are committed to ensuring that our children succeed and do well.

Alderman Geoffrey Field OBE officially opened Geoffrey Field Junior School in 1952.

The school is set in attractive grounds in South Reading. We cater for children aged between seven and eleven. There is an adjacent infant school that caters for children aged between five and seven. We aim to provide a stimulating and caring environment where children can grow into confident, responsible people equipped with the skills necessary for the next stage of their education. We know that the only way we can achieve the best for the children is by close co-operation between home and school. This is outlined in our home/school agreement. This makes clear what each of us can expect from the other – the child, the parent(s) and the school.

We place great emphasis on children conducting themselves responsibly, with due regard for others. We encourage children to achieve a high standard of personal behaviour. The phrase which best describes the atmosphere we try to create is “high expectation and low threat”. With your co-operation and in this atmosphere, we believe children have the best possible chance. We also believe that for a school to work at its best – all the people in it – adults, as well as children, need to see themselves as constantly learning. We can only guess at the world our children will grow up in, but we can be sure that these skills and attitudes will be essential to their success.
