A MESSAGE FROM OUR PRINCIPAL
I am delighted to have been recently appointed as Principal of St Gerard’s School and Support Services. Having spent 20 years in the teaching profession teaching children and young adults in primary, secondary and at university level, I now feel privileged to have worked with inspirational professionals for the last year in St Gerard’s. There is much to celebrate and be proud of at St Gerard’s and I am excited by the opportunity to lead our school and our surrounding community into its next phase of development. It is within our ethos that every child has a happy, fulfilling and successful life, not just while they are with us, but continuing well into adulthood.
A major strength, evident during my year as Vice Principal, is the commitment and hard work of all staff within the school. They promote a caring, supportive and happy environment that allows children to build self-esteem and a sense of personal well-being. This allows for your child's educational needs to be effectively met. My aim is to continue to develop the highly skilled staff in St Gerard’s to ensure understanding of how our pupils learn best, thus ensuring every child reaches their full potential.
Engagement between the school, parents, carers and other professionals is key to establishing productive partnerships that work creatively to develop the skills necessary for everyday life. We will strive to support this vision through our approach to learning and teaching. We deliver a structured curriculum, have a modern and stimulating school environment, and have a focus on doing what is best for our pupils. However we as a staff do not underestimate the impact and importance of the encouragement that comes from home. I hope that this gives you a flavour of our school vision and how we will strive to develop a model of working together; always with your children at the centre of what we achieve now and for their future.
