Information about the School

We are passionate about our school. Why? … you ask.

It’s simple really. St. George’s School is at the heart our community. Many of our children’s parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles were educated at St. George’s. The school has served four generations of the same families and we are very proud of our links with the community. St. George’s is a well-established school with a sense of pride, community spirit and values.

It is also a school which is proud to be pushing forward; trying to develop increasingly effective teaching and learning strategies that support all of our children … a truly inclusive place to be.

We are focused on improving many aspects of school life. We are developing excellent skills in assessment, are improving the way we skill children up as readers, writers and mathematicians, and supporting children effectively in both their learning and well-being. We also aim to improve the curriculum for all our young learners through improved breadth and depth, and are providing improved facilities, including state-of-the-art ICT resourcing. In recent years we have completed a new capital building programme which includes new classrooms, a new staff area, improved SEN areas and a new library. All our classrooms are newly refurbished … lovely places to teach and learn!

However, we still have much to do and believe that by working in partnership to achieve a common purpose we will establish a school that is at the cutting edge of educational practice.

So, as you can see, we really are passionate about our school and recognise that through enabling inspirational teaching, learning and leadership, we will set the school well on the way to improving further still.
