St. Giles Church of England Primary School

Thank you for visiting our website. Whether you are visiting as a prospective pupil, parent, teacher or Governor, we hope to provide an insight into what’s on offer for our children here in the community of Killamarsh.

St Giles is a vibrant, thriving school with high academic standards, where a strong emphasis is placed on the individual child, within a Christian ethos of love and mutual respect. We are part of the Derby Diocesan Academy Trust (DDAT), having converted on 1st September 2017. We are constantly seeking to improve further, and have achieved higher standards in the last two years at KS2, and three-year rising trends at EYFS, Y1 phonics and KS1 Sats results. Since January 2019, we have achieved the Primary Science Quality Mark, Healthy Schools Community Award, RE Quality Mark Silver Award and Eco Schools Bronze Award (with the help of our pupil-led Eco Squad).  

Everybody Matters at St Giles. We have a  highly inclusive outlook, and place a fundamental importance on safeguarding and protecting our children from harm at all levels and in all forms. We encourage our children to make the most of the many opportunities we give them, so that they are highly motivated to learn and are prepared for the next exciting stages of their lives.

The partnership that the school develops with parents makes a profound contribution to the successful development and achievement enjoyed by our children. Parents have a vital part to play in what the school seeks to do and can help children come to school prepared, equipped and ready to play a full part in the caring, family atmosphere here.

We have high expectations in work, play and social behaviour so that each and every child will benefit from an inspirational experience at the start of their school lives, and where they can feel happy, secure, valued and loved.

Come and visit us – we look forward to seeing you in school!
