St Giles is part of the Valley Teaching Alliance and works with a group of local mainstream primary and secondary schools to share and develop good practice.
St Giles has a number of well-established links with Primary and Secondary schools in Croydon. Pupils from the school take part in events and activities specially planned to promote inclusion and raise self-esteem for all pupils involved. We are keen to promote disability awareness and challenge perceptions.
Events this year have included:
On Friday 17th November will be holding our own St Giles Children in Need Day to raise money for our own very special children. We need to raise £30,000 to resurface an area damaged by tree roots and create a brand new sensory garden and outdoor learning space. Please send your child in with £5. They can wear their favourite dressing up clothes, pyjamas or silly outfit. There will be games to play, a cake stall, Lucky Dip, a prize square game and lots of more fun.
Tickets are still available for our Quiz Night on Friday 24th November. Tickets are £10 each and include a meal (just bring your own drinks). Please send in your money in an envelope with your name and number on it. Come as a team of 6-8 people or join a team when you get here. We really hope that you can join us.
As always, please remember to use your child’s home/school book or Gilofax to tell us any news or let us know any concerns. A member of staff will always follow things up and get back to you.
Mrs V Marshall (Head Teacher)
