Welcome from the Head Teacher

Welcome to St George's Catholic Voluntary Academy


On behalf of the children, staff and governors, I would like to warmly welcome you to St George’s Catholic Voluntary Primary Academy.


My name is Mrs Rachael Snowdon-Poole and I am immensely proud to be the Headteacher of such a vibrant learning community. We are a larger than average sized academy situated in Littleover, Derby. We have approximately 350 children on roll and are part of the Holy Family Catholic Multi Academy Trust. It is our priority that the education your child receives here will enable them to achieve their academic potential and progress confidently into the next phase of their education. It is also part of our vision that your child’s time here at St George’s should be filled with positive experiences; that they are aware of the endless possibilities that await them and that they are nurtured in order to develop within themselves a confidence to embrace whatever comes their way.


As a Catholic academy, underpinning all of the above, is a relentless commitment to ensuring that the children of St George’s will undertake their learning within an authentic faith community, with Christ at its very centre. We also recognise that you, the parents, are the children’s primary educators and so we wish to work in partnership with you to ensure that your child is well supported throughout their entire learning journey.


If you would like to know more about our academy, you are very welcome to come and visit. The children of St George’s very much enjoy talking about their learning and sharing their achievements.


Mrs. Snowdon-Poole
