A Welcome from Mrs Williams our Head Teacher:
On behalf of the staff, governors, and children, welcome to our school website.
Here you will find everything you need, whether you have children at the school already, whether you are a pupil or maybe you are considering joining us at St Greg’s.
Please browse the site, our parent zone has a wealth of information; discover term dates, newsletters, details of our school meals, and be sure to check out our vibrant PTFA’s page!
Our class pages are well worth a browse, you will discover what our wonderful children are up to and why we are so immensely proud of them.
St Greg’s is here for all to see, this website is a means of lifting the roof of the school and letting you peer in. You will see our classrooms, our swimming pool and much more besides. We have easily accessible information on safeguarding, pupil & sports premium, and other policies. You can even explore some of our history which dates to 1874!
You will find St Greg’s is a place of fun, laughter and of course learning. We want all our children to achieve, to be the absolute best they can be. We set about this by recognising that each child is uniquely different – each possessing different skills and abilities. Nurturing these talents is our mission, together we achieve great things.
Our learning has no limits!
We have pride in our Christian beliefs, the school values are LOVE, FAITH & HOPE – these encompass many other values and the team at St Gregory’s encourage and support our children to live these out in their daily lives. These are not just words, we invoke these into various facets of our learning and life at school.
The success of a school is down to its team, that consists not only of the staff, but of the children themselves, governors, parents, and carers. For it is only by working together that our children grow into confident, mature, and articulate young people who are ready for the next step in their education.
Our school SENDCO is Miss Louise Edwards – please see our SEN page for more information. Miss Edwards can be contacted via the school office e mail address.

Our Single Equality policy sets out our commitment to tackle discrimination whether direct or indirect, individual or institutional and promoting equality of opportunity and good relations across all areas of school activities, including our dealing with parents and the community.
At St Gregory’s we continuously strive to ensure that everyone in our school is treated with respect and dignity as reflected in our school vision, values, and theological underpinning. The guiding principles in our Single Equality Policy reflect that each person in our school will be given fair and equal opportunities to develop their full potential with positive regard to gender, ethnicity, cultural and religious background, age, sexuality or disability.

Our Governing Body has specific Governors whose special remit is to monitor Safeguarding, Inclusion and Data.
