Gerrans is a small school with an emphasis on a strong community feel. We celebrate and capitalize on all the positive aspects of a small school.
Located on The Roseland Peninsula we try to use our beautiful local surroundings to enhance our curriculum as much as possible. We aim to encourage every individual to become an active, confident learner prepared to take risks and learn from mistakes. My colleagues and I are extremely proud of our School and the cheerful, happy atmosphere that exists.
Currently Gerrans consists of 28 pupils in Key Stage 2 working across three learning areas always with a qualified teacher and a part time teaching assistant. Key Stage 1 consists of 21 pupils learning within a bright and cheerful inside and outside learning areas with a qualified teacher and full time teaching assistant. Little Choughs Nursery currently with 11 pupils operates alongside Key Stage 1, again with stimulating indoor and outdoor learning spaces.
Our Golden Values were written and agreed by all the pupils and staff of Gerrans School. These very golden values reflect the learning atmosphere we wish to create within our school.
We are Gentle and Kind, We Encourage each other, We Respect others and property, We are Resilient learners, We are Always truthful and trustworthy, We are a Nurturing environment, We are Supersonic
Visitors to our school remark on the friendly polite children whom show respect for one another and adults. But don’t take our word for it come and visit and “feel” our school atmosphere and see why we all think this is a very special place to learn, grow and share. I look forward to welcoming you.
