'A good church school, with outstanding features.’ SIAS Report May 2012
We enjoy close links with our Church, St Michael and All Angels with St Catherine, which is situated on Liverpool Road in Peel Green. Although this is a short walk away we arrange lots of joint events each term, such as Assemblies, Messy Church sessions and special Family Services.
You can find out more about our Church by following these links:
As a Church of England school, Religious Education is a central part of the curriculum at GEMS. Here children learn more about aspects of Christianity and gain an understanding and appreciation of other religions too.
In addition, each day the children are involved in a collective act of worship, where moral and spiritual issues are considered. Parents have the right to withdraw their children from this programme and the daily act of collective worship, by arrangement with the Headteacher.
Our school is proud to be part of the Children's University Trust.
The Children's University (CU) Trust is a charitable trust that provides 7 to 14 year olds with exciting and innovative learning activities and experiences outside normal school hours. We celebrate achievement and reward participation through our certificates. Raising children's aspirations is important to us and we aim to develop the understanding that learning can be "...a satellite navigation system to better places in life…".
