Dear Parents and Carers,


 
 It gives me great pleasure to welcome you and your child to the St Gregory’s Catholic Academy website, which is part of the All Saints Catholic Collegiate.
 
Choosing your child’s school is one of the most important decisions you will ever make.  The purpose of this website is to inform you about our vision, values and ethos, curriculum standards and provision, including the wide range and high quality opportunities available to every child at St Gregorys.
 
As a Catholic school our fundamental mission is to promote positive values and virtues within our school community in which every person is respected as an individual, made in the image of Christ.  The promotion of the Gospel values  - which are reinforced through the curriculum - also reinforces the British Values which are mentioned explicitly in the Ofsted framework for inspection 2014.
 
We delight in the many comments from visitors about the learning environment, which highlighted the ethos; ‘Pupils’ learning and behaviour around the school is typically exemplary.’ (Ofsted 2012) This culture is firmly embedded , enabling children of all faiths, abilities and personalities to thrive and succeed. High expectations for good behaviour  are fundamental if our children are to develop positive long-term relationships and remain happy, safe and confident to work independently and alongside others, both in school and for future life in modern Britain and as global citizens.
 
Through an extensive and creative curriculum  children’s learning is enhanced by a wide variety of extra-curricular sporting activities and after-school clubs, for pupils in all key stages.  Our links with specialist music teachers, sports coaches and   subject specialists for modern foreign languages enable our children to access high quality teaching and learning whilst enabling pupils to participate and perform through instrumental teaching, competitive team sports, drama and performing arts.
 
We retain a high regard for the importance of  engaging with families  through regular communication and contact with parents.  Celebration assemblies are held every half-term, to share children’s achievements and successes; Induction evenings for parents are held in school, as children transfer between key stages; ‘Watch me Learn’ sessions provide opportunities for parents to participate in lessons alongside their children, whilst consultation evenings involve pupils in sharing and discussing their own progress in learning.  ‘Family Learning’ events  are also held regularly so that parents and children can access activities and learn together, which also assists parents and carers in supporting children’s learning at home.
 
Service Before Self,’ is at the heart of our leadership, which is nurtured from the earliest age, and we are extremely proud of the daily contribution made by our pupils, including the active School Council, peer mediators, sports champions and monitors.  This makes for a vibrant and dynamic learning community in which everyone celebrates achievements and success. 
 
Whilst I hope you find this brief introduction useful, there can be no substitute for a personal visit and you are warmly invited to visit, by prior arrangement
 
You can be assured of a warm and friendly welcome.
I look forward to meeting you and your child in the future.

Yours sincerely
 
Mrs M Yates
Executive Headteacher
