At St Giles, we believe that children will learn best if parents know, understand and are in broad agreement with the aims of the school.

Working together with parents and in keeping with the school’s Christian ethos, we want to help your child to develop a sense of responsibility towards him or herself, towards others and towards the community to which we belong.
