A message from our Interim Headteacher, Miss MacAlpine
Welcome to St George’s CE Primary School
Firstly, let me share how delighted I am to have been appointed as Interim Head for the Autumn 2020 Term at St George’s CE Primary School. It is a real privilege to have this role. I am very excited to welcome the children back to school this term, many of whom have been away from school since March 2020.
St George’s is a happy and vibrant school that has high ambitions for all of our pupils. I feel privileged to lead a team of professional, talented and committed staff who provide well-planned and well-organised lessons and activities. Wide ranges of curriculum enrichment activities are provided to enhance children’s learning. We have a supportive and hard working group of governors who are highly skilled in different areas. Governors and staff work together to provide our children with the very best learning opportunities.
We encourage our pupils to be responsible for their learning, to grow in confidence and become independent. Our aim is for your children to become independent life-long learners who are aspirational and positive about their futures lives.
Christian values and Learner Qualities underpin all that we do at St George’s Primary School. Children have the opportunity to reflect on each value and to develop an understanding of that value in action and how they behave. We are proud to be a Church School reflecting Christian values in the way we interact with each other and within the community. At St George’s we are also proud to be part of the Southwark Diocesan Board of Education Multi Academy Trust.
At the school’s last Ofsted Inspection in 2016 the school was judged to be overall Good with many outstanding features, the report found that ‘a passionate belief that all pupils can grow their capacity to think and learn is at the heart of the culture’ of the school.
The Southwark Diocesan Board of Education Inspection in July 2016 judged the school to be an Outstanding church school. The Inspector found that the school has a ‘relentless and unwavering mission to support and develop the wholeness of every pupil, guided by the recognition that all are precious and equal in the sight of God, ensure each pupil achieves their full potential.’
Our staff, coupled with supportive parents and governors, contribute greatly to the success of our school. We all work together with a common goal, to ensure that our children are happy and successful in their primary years.
I look forward to continuing to work in partnership with parents and families.
