Why Choose St Greg’s?

Our school is based on Christian principles and values

Our links to the Church are strong, we attend regular services at the church which is situated just next door.

Staff and children endeavour to live our lives underpinned by Christian values, staying happy and respectful to our whole community

 

 

Our SIAMS report

We are  proud of our most recent SIAMS report which rates us as Good

Children have a developing understanding of Christian values which they articulate with growing confidence, beginning to recognise the contribution these make to their lives and achievements”

Our school is one family

Such is the size of our school,  staff are very familiar with all of the children, not just those that they teach day to day!  This brings a real family feel to the whole school.  Each and every child knows each member of staff

Our class sizes are not too large

Our teacher/pupil ratio is high, so children receive more one-to-one teaching time and a highly-personalised learning experience.

Working with other age groups

Mixed age classes mean children are encouraged to care for and support each other – a skill which they learn for life. Having different year groups learning and playing together creates a wonderfully positive environment for all.

Our staff

Our team is passionate, experienced and highly committed to providing the very best for our children.   Most of our staff have been in post for many years and this brings with it an assured feel to the whole school.

The Village

Marnhull is a wonderful village, full of warmth towards the school.  Our rural location lends itself to outdoor activities – see our thriving Forest School and our santa walk.  We are very proud of our village and we hope we represent all that is great about Dorset.

Our Facilities

As mentioned, St Greg’s is situated in a lovely rural setting, we have a lush playing field with a wooden pirate ship to keep the children entertained.  Our biggest features have to be the cinder running track which allows our children to take part in the daily mile each day, and of course our outdoor heated swimming pool.  The pool is a huge asset, it enables us to get the youngest children learning to swim and our end of year Gala is always great fun.

Each of our classrooms have electronic whiteboards, these are an excellent learning tool keeping the children fully engaged.  We have a beautifully painted library that allows some quiet space for our children to read and our ICT suite is also fully equipped.
