At St Gregory the Great we work in partnership with parents in supporting their child achieve both in their academic studies and in their development outside the classroom.  We pride ourselves on our close and positive relationships with parents and carers.

Our pastoral system is operated through four houses which in turn are divided into tutor groups.  Tutor groups are small and vertically arranged giving high levels of individual support to each pupil.

The Parent Staff Association (“PSA”) at St Gregory the Great is well established and active and plays an important part in School life.  Please come along to PSA meetings and get involved.

LEARNING PLATFORM

The main use of the learning platform was to communicate the latest information on pupils attendance, progress and targets for improvement online via the “students dashboard”.  However, the product was withdrawn from use and we intended replacing it with a bespoke designed and improved product, but the company has been unable to fulfil their commitments to us on its supply.

As a result, we shall be reporting to parents solely in the traditional manner for the rest of this term, ie via paper reports sent home.

We are trialling a replacement system that will give online access to a similar “student dashboard” as before, and expect to have this in place by January, and for it to include information about homework set.

The school continues to use a variety of e-Learning tools allowing students to use the internet for their learning, with individual packages being used by different departments. For instance, every student has access to Samlearning (https://www.samlearning.com/) which provides personalised learning in a variety of subjects, mymaths (http://www.mymaths.co.uk/) is used by the maths department, and Edmodo is used by ICT.
