A MESSAGE FROM OUR PRINCIPAL
I am very privileged to be Principal of St Gerard’s School and Support Services. St Gerard’s is a Catholic Co-educational Special School that caters for pupils from the ages of 3-19 with a range of additional needs.
There is much to celebrate and be proud of at St Gerard’s. 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. Our mission statement: Achieve, Believe and Celebrate encompasses everything we do in St Gerard’s in helping our pupils reach their full potential: physically, emotionally, academically and socially.
A major strength of St Gerard's 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, a sense of personal well-being and reach their full potential. This allows for your child's educational needs to be effectively met.
We provide small class settings with highly skilled and experienced Teachers and Learning Assistant staff. We work as part of a multidisciplinary team. Allied Health Professionals such as Speech and Language therapists and Occupational therapists are an integral part of our school team. Collaboration between health and educational professionals is vital to ensure each child reaches their full potential.
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 an insight for 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.
