Welcome

On behalf of the children, staff and Governors I would like to welcome you to St Georges Lower School website.

I am very proud and privileged to work with a team of very talented teachers and support staff which makes St George’s a really special place to work, learn and play.

The ethos of the school is based on old fashioned values of good manners, respect, kindness and hard work. We have very high expectations of behaviour at St George’s. Visitors often comment on the ‘learning’ atmosphere and good relationships which are so important to us.

We work very hard at St George’s but we also believe that learning should be fun. Our iCurriculum offers all of our children an excellent education that is full of challenge, interest and fun. My colleagues and I work hard to create an environment, which provides children of all ages with opportunities to experience success and develop a life-long learning attitude, equipping them with the skills needed in todays world. In addition, children are encouraged to build their self-confidence, to develop self-reliance, to take risks without fear of failure and to make informed decisions about their own learning.

We also believe that we can only achieve the best for our children through developing a close relationship between home and school. There are many opportunities for parents to find out about and to share in the education of their children and I am always readily available to talk to parents about any aspect of their child’s development.

We are an inclusive school and we try to ensure that we know all our pupils really well. Every child matters at St George’s and we value children for all their different strengths and qualities.

By leaving your contact details with the school, invitations can be sent to you so that your child’s transition into lower school is supportive and smooth. I look forward in showing you around one of the best schools in Leighton Buzzard.
