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,

On Friday 17th November will be holding our own St Giles Children in Need Day to raise money for our own very special children. We need to raise £30,000 to resurface an area damaged by tree roots and create a brand new sensory garden and outdoor learning space. Please send your child in with £5. They can wear their favourite dressing up clothes, pyjamas or silly outfit. There will be games to play, a cake stall, Lucky Dip, a prize square game and lots of more fun.

Tickets are still available for our Quiz Night on Friday 24th November. Tickets are £10 each and include a meal (just bring your own drinks). Please send in your money in an envelope with your name and number on it. Come as a team of 6-8 people or join a team when you get here. We really hope that you can join us.

As always, please remember to use your child’s home/school book or Gilofax to tell us any news or let us know any concerns. A member of staff will always follow things up and get back to you.

Mrs V Marshall (Head Teacher)
