About us

  • At St Giles Primary School we believe in equality of opportunity for all. We aim to eliminate discrimination, foster good relationships and promote equality. Click here to view Equality Statement

  •  

  • We aim to give our pupils a broad and balanced curriculum. We plan cross-curricular topics that provide exciting and interesting opportunities for children to practise the skills they learn.

 

  • We teach Literacy and Numeracy daily throughout the year groups and Science weekly but linked to the topic theme.

 

  • As a Church of England school our Christian ethos runs throughout the curriculum, the children take part in weekly RE lessons which teach about all faiths which are planned using the Derbyshire Agreed Religious Education syllabus. We also hold services at St Giles Church.

 

  • Opportunities are taken to provide outdoor learning in our wonderful school grounds and children visit locations linked to the topic or have workshops in school regularly.

 

  • Children  receive whole class music tuition through the Derbyshire Music Partnership’s wider opportunities scheme and pupils have thoroughly enjoyed learning Ukulele and Samba over the past two years.

 

  • The PE curriculum includes gymnastics, dance, football, tag rugby, netball, volleyball, hockey, orienteering and cross country. Children in Key Stage 2 have the opportunity to go swimming at The Arc Leisure Centre. We take part in Highfields Cluster primary school events which allow us access to their sports facilities and to compete against other local primary schools.
