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,

A huge thank you to everyone who joined us at our annual Fun Day! We all appreciate the time taken from your busy schedules to come along and support this event. I am sure you will all agree it was a huge success, not only did the children have a great time - but the staff did too and we raised £2069 for the school!

We are thrilled to announce that one of our school governors, Mr Ken Morcombe, has been awarded an MBE for his services to Children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. Mr Morcombe has been a governor at St Giles for 12 years and during that time he has supported and challenged the school to ensure that the provision has continued to be excellent and that all our very complex children make good and outstanding progress. Mr Morcombe is more than just a governor, he is a real friend of the school – fundraising for us though his walking group, helping out at our residential trips and supporting extracurricular events. Congratulations from all the staff, pupils, parents and carers.

Please keep an eye on the website and our newsletter for forthcoming events updates.
