The school is situated on an avenue which is adjacent to St George's Church of England Church. The avenue of lime trees connects Bramhall Lane to Buxton Road, where the main entrance of the school is situated.
On behalf of the governors and staff, I would like to welcome you to our school. Starting school is a significant milestone in a child's life. At St. George's, we provide a happy, caring and stimulating environment for all the children, so that each may achieve, with your valued support, his/her potential. We hope that every child is able to feel that they are part of a community and that he/she may learn to uphold the values of Christianity.
In addition to providing a broad and balanced academic curriculum, we promote high standards of behaviour and encourage the children as they progress through the school, to be both independent and responsible. We also have a range of out of school activities and many links with St George's Church and its organisations.
We therefore provide a well-rounded education, delivered by a dedicated staff and we can assure you that every effort is made to allow each child to achieve the highest possible standards.
Our prospectus is available in school and this should answer many of your questions. If for any reason you require additional information, please do not hesitate to contact school.
We welcome parents on both a formal and informal basis and will be available to discuss your child's progress at any mutually convenient time.
|Our School, "A Beacon of Light"|
We are proud of our significant achievements in a number of areas. St George's was one of the first schools to receive the ICTmark in recognition of our success in using ICT to enhance learning and teaching. We were also awarded National Healthy School status for promoting a healthy, safe lifestyle.
After a successful OFSTED inspection in July 2004, we also celebrated an excellent Church School inspection, where we were described as 'a beacon of light' for the promotion of our Christian ethos.
St. George's is a Church of England Voluntary Aided School. We therefore have strong links with the church, which has representatives on the governing body and which contributes to the upkeep of the buildings.
The school occupies three characterful buildings on a compact site. There are approximately three hundred and seventy children, aged between four and eleven years old, on roll. The Infant Department has six classrooms. The Juniors currently occupy six rooms, with additional rooms available for use. There are two halls and two playgrounds. Each department has its own library. A tree-lined avenue provides access to both church and school.
Our mission is to provide the best possible education for the children of St. George's within a community that upholds the values of Christianity.
We will do this by:
Providing an environment where we share and explore together the Christian faith and feel a sense of belonging to the wider Christian community;
Fostering an awareness and sensitivity towards others whatever their personal beliefs;
Promoting values such as honesty, trust, mutual support and respect for others and of self, whilst adopting a caring attitude towards each other, our belongings and the place in which we live and work;
Providing equality of opportunity within a secure, positive, happy and stimulating environment where adults and children alike can share in the joy of teaching and learning;
Having high expectations of all in relation to both work and behaviour, encouraging perseverance and taking pride in the achievements of individuals and the school;
Providing a curriculum that meets all statutory requirements;
Working in partnership with parents for the good of the child.
