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,

I am happy to say that St Giles main school will be open tomorrow following work over the weekend and today on a blocked rainwater drain beneath the school. Power has been restored and the Special School Nursing Hub is therefore able to reopen. Further work will take place next weekend to make sure that this issue does not reoccur. ,

Once again we are sorry for the inconvenience on Friday and look forward to school resuming tomorrow.,

Kathy Lewis -
