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 and Carers,

We have had a busy term and are now preparing for Christmas which is obviously going to be quite different this year. We are committed to making Christmas as enjoyable as possible for all our pupils and making sure that it remains a special time for them.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you again for your constant support through these extremely challenging times. We continue to be overwhelmed by how well the children have settled back into school life.

I would also like to thank our staff and governors - they have worked tirelessly this term to make sure the children feel happy and safe.

Best wishes,

Kathy Lewis - Headteacher
