Schools Links

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:

  • Green class singing in the Primary Choir at Fairfield Halls with hundreds of mainstream pupils
  • The Brit School working with secondary pupils to prepare for their summer show
  • Inclusion sessions at Regina Coeli for a Year 1 pupil
  • John Fisher students helping with sports day
  • Pupils from Riddlesdown, St Giles and Priory working together to represent Croydon in the Panathlon competition
  • Pupils from Chipstead Valley invited to the primary Bollywood day

Dear Parents/Carers,

We have a very busy Summer Term ahead with lots of events taking place. We have our Open Morning on Thursday 23rd May 10:15—11:45am. This is a great chance to show friends and relatives the school and will also be an opportunity for prospective parents and professionals who work in other schools, colleges, nurseries and children’s centres to visit the school. Do come and join us.

Our Summer Fun Day will take place on Saturday 15th June. We are aiming to make this Fun Day a very special event with lots of activities such as games, crafts, face painting and the usual Tombola. This year we will be having a Pimms tent and our delicious barbecue. If you haven’t already sent in your Raffle tickets, please do so as we have lots of prizes being added every day. Extra tickets are available from the School reception. If any parents/grandparents/carers would like to help run a stall, bake cakes, help set up etc. please let Joni in the school office know.

We are also holding a BBQ on Thursday 20th June (12:10 onwards) which parents and carers are invited to, A leaflet has been sent home, so please return the reply slip asap.
