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,

We are in the final week of the Summer term. It has been extremely busy with the Prom, the Secondary Show and Leavers’ Assembly which is taking place on Friday 20th (invitation only). Thanks to all the staff for making these events so special for our pupils.

With great sadness, we say goodbye to five members of staff who are leaving at the end of this term: Andy (Class AF), Hannah (Red Class) and Cara (Orange Class), Angela (Social Care Team) and Anna (Class SRD) are all leaving for pastures new. We wish them all every success in the future. We would also like to thank Tom our PE assistant for all of his help this year. Tom is going to University in September.

School transport will run as normal on the last day of term, however, if parents wish to collect their child earlier, between 1pm and 3pm, they are welcome to do so. Please let your class teacher know in advance.

We wish everyone a very happy holiday and look forward to seeing you all on Wednesday 5th September.

Have a great holiday. !

Virginia Marshall - Headteacher
