Welcome to St Paul's

St Paul’s is a very special school, filled with warmth and welcome. Our children are keen to learn and eager to be the best they can be. They behave with respect and play a key role in creating an environment which celebrates individuality. They make a positive, tangible contribution to the life of the school. Staff, children, families and parishioners alike are proud of our school and are committed to the community we have formed with Christ at its centre. I am privileged to lead a dedicated team of staff who keep the children’s best interests at the heart of everything they do. ‘We work together, learn together and pray together - we are one’.  


It is an honour to be leading St Paul’s to further success. Our key areas of focus this academic year are:

  • Metacognition

  • SEND

  • Mental well-being

  • Early writing

  • Number fluency

We are excited to continue our curriculum development, embedding our curriculum intent and implementation securely and consistently across the school, ensuring that all have a firm and common understanding of our curriculum intent and what it means for our practice. 


This website will provide you with a wealth of information about our school as well as providing downloadable material and useful internet links.  It also provides information about the varied opportunities we offer pupils. Take a look and celebrate their learning with us.

We welcome visits to our school - our pupil ambassadors would be delighted to show you around.  Please contact the school office to make an appointment. 

With very best wishes

Our Philosophy

Striving for excellence

St Paul’s Catholic Primary School Mission Statement is to live in faith, walk in hope and grow in love.  Through these actions we can then, work together, learn together, pray together, we are one.

Be guided by God in all actions; in loving, in learning, in living.
