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,

Thank you to all staff, pupils and parents who attended our Fun Day on Saturday 17th June. It was an enormous success and we have raised roughly £2500. This money will be used to fund much need equipment and will go towards trips for our very special children. I would like to thank all the staff, in particular Joni Campbell, and parents who helped organise such a wonderful day.

Please make a note in your diaries that we have a 70's WOW Day taking place on Friday 30th June. It will be a fun filled day with sports, parade and 70's disco. Don't forget to dig out your 70's clothes and come along if you can. Further details will be sent out in due course.

Our Parents' Evening will also be taking place on Wednesday 5th July from 4.30pm. Letters and reply slips have been sent home, so please return these as soon as possible.

Many thanks

Virginia Marshall - Headteacher
