Article 3 (best interests of the child)


  • instil the attitude of service and stewardship  that challenges social injustice, promotes equality and encourages an understanding of our world and the needs and wants of others.

            Article 29 (goals of education)



On behalf of the staff and governors of St Giles C.E. Primary, I want to welcome you and your family to our new school web site.


St Giles is a special place where the staff are dedicated to providing a stimulating, exciting environment where everyone feels valued and safe, ideas can flourish and pupils can realise their full potential.


By providing a well-structured and engaging curriculum, and by promoting good behaviour through our Christian ethos, we aim to enthuse in all children a love of learning as well as respect and care for each other. We aim to ensure your child thrives at St Giles C.E. Primary, feeling safe, having fun and enjoying success. We want our pupils' time in our school to be memorable, build on what they know and can do as well as help them become lifelong learners. We highly value the partnership between home, school and Church and encourage all parents to take an active part in the education of their children. The school cannot work in isolation.


The partnership between school staff, parents, governors and other stakeholders is an essential one. Together we can set challenges and our partners can help us ask ‘how can we do it even better’.


We look forward to welcoming you and your child to our school. If you would like any paper copies of information on our website, please contact the School Office. (All copies requested  will be provided free of charge.)
