A warm welcome to Gossops Green Primary; we provide a calm, purposeful learning environment that strives to provide exceptional education and the best learning opportunities possible for all. We have a talented and dedicated team of staff and governors who, along with expertise from The Collegiate Trust, all work together to make learning rich, exciting and purposeful. We are delighted that this has been recognised by Ofsted during our September 2019 inspection, where we were judged to be a GOOD school. We feel privileged that parents and carers have placed their trust in us to educate, nurture and develop your child.
Ofsted commented that Gossops Green ‘has a family atmosphere…and staff know their pupils well and look after them carefully’ and it is true that above all else, this is a happy school where children feel valued, listened to and safe. We all know that a happy child will go on to thrive in their education and so at Gossops Green we value the whole child and develop their emotional, physical and mental wellbeing, alongside their academic learning. In essence, we want the same things for your child as we would want for our own and your child becomes our child, with every lesson, experience, conversation and playtime having this ethos at its heart.
Our creative and challenging curriculum is planned around topics which spark children’s interest and make them excited to learn new skills and knowledge. We build in many memorable experiences to bring learning alive and meaningful for our children. Indeed, our fantastic Year 6’s reminisce fondly about the many experiences they have had during their time at Gossops Green when they leave us as confident, resilient, and fulfilled learners, ready for secondary school.
Central to our approach to learning at Gossops Green, is our belief in the importance of reading. There are no limits to what a child can achieve if they can read and we are proud that Ofsted described our teachers as ‘experts’ in this essential, life-enhancing skill. We work in partnership with our supportive parents and carers to ensure that every child is a confident and fluent reader, able to access all learning and achieve to their best potential.
We also teach our children to be considerate and care for their school, their community, and for one another. Gossops Green children learn that they have to power to make the world a fairer, kinder place and they are nurtured to develop confidence, to articulate their ideas and to be proud of who they are.
We look forward to meeting you and your child and working in partnership to ensure that your trust in us is rewarded with a happy, fulfilled child set firmly on the path to success as a life-long learner.

Our Ethos and Values
Excellent communication is at the heart of everything we do. At Gossops Green Primary School, we believe that communication is the KEY to unlocking the potential for every learner to be successful.
Our curriculum is driven by four key themes, which we believe unlock the potential that all children at Gossops Green possess:
On Wednesday, our Year 5 pupils endured a realistic day of Victorian life as part of their topic on the Victorians. Activities during the day involved nail inspection, handwriting practice, performing drills and singing the National Anthem. Pupils also learned about punishments that would have been given at the time and the types of jobs that Victorian children would have carried out if they were not…
