Equality and Excellence


"I was struck by pupils' enthusiasm for learning."

"Their love of learning stems from the lively curriculum."

Our most recent inspection was in November 2017, it was a short Section 8,  1 day inspection and we maintained our rating 'good'.

Please find the Inspection Letter and Letter to parents from the acting headteacher below.

Inspection Letter

Acting Headteacher letter to parents



St Paul's  last full inspection was in January 2013 and given the rating 'good'.


"Pupils achieve well. Attainment is usually significantly above average in English and mathematics by the end of Year 6."

"Teaching is good. Lessons are well-organised and pupils are keen to learn. Outstanding leadership of teaching gives teachers expert guidance on how to improve their practice."

"Pupils behave extremely well both in lessons and around the school. Older pupils look after younger ones and playtimes are fun."

We always aim to improve so here are our most recent School Development Plan Outlines.

In March 2016 we asked our parents for their views of St Paul's School. The questions we asked were the same as those on Ofsted's "Parent View". All survey responses including comments are held in the Headteacher's office.
