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,

What a busy start to 2019! After half term we are looking forward to World Book Day, Spring Disco and Comic Relief.

We are thrilled with both our Panathlon & Boccia teams who performed so well recently. The Panathlon team have now secured their place in the second round. Our Boccia B team came 4th and the Boccia A team came 1st. Winning this tournament means we now advance to the London Finals in March.
