Values and vision
The school’s motto is “All different, All equal” and it follows the Christian beliefs that the skills and interests of all the students should be developed, recognised and to value individual’s unique worth and God-given talents.
At Saint George’s they go by the belief that everyone is of equal worth to God and it is peoples’ differences which make a richer and more celebrated community. The school goes by five core values which spell Christ; Compassion, Hope, Respect, Services and Thankfulness.
“Students enter the school with attainment which is well below average then make good progress because they are well taught. The development of students’ literacy skills is strong across the curriculum. As a result, all groups of students progress in their learning. Teaching is good because teachers know their students very well. They plan interesting and enjoyable lessons and support individuals well so that they make good progress. Students’ behaviour is good. Students show good concentration in lessons. They show respect for staff, visitors and each other. Attendance has improved and exclusions have fallen.”
