St Gregory the Great Catholic Primary School

We reopen for the children of key workers, Early Years, Year 1 & Year 6 from 1st June. See "news" below for details.

The Friends of St Greg’s Primary and The Pod

Welcome, to anyone over 18 interested in helping the school.

If you’re looking for the Primary school Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) then you’re in the right place, except that we follow a ‘friends’ of the school model instead. This model acknowledges all varieties of children’s home lives and seeks to integrate the wider community into our school community, including local businesses.

You are now entering a whole world of extra-curricular fun! We’ve got home-baked cake sales, raffles, tombolas, random prizes, bargain-priced toy sales, cheap school uniforms, kids’ cinema events, Saturday clubs, picnics, multi-cultural food festivals, Christmas hampers, and our popular 100 Club.
Of course, none of the above actually happens without a little help from our friends, BUT there’s no pressure on you personally. Maybe you could just join our mailing list for now and see how you feel.

Since 2017, we have been officially recognised by HMRC as a charity for tax purposes, so we claim an extra 25p on top of every £1 donated under the Gift Aid Scheme. Our work is to advance the education of all pupils at Foundation stage, Key Stage 1, and Key Stage 2. That means The Pod nursery, the reception class, Years 1 to 6, ages 1 to 11, Early Years, Infants, Juniors, or whatever you like to call them!
We aim to help as follows:

  1. Encouraging good relationships between staff, families, and the wider community.
  2. Engaging in activities and/or and providing facilities/equipment which support the school.

We would love you to get involved, even if you just join our mailing list to see what‘s going
