Our School Vision

Equality and Excellence 

Our vision is to provide a happy, caring and stimulating environment where children will recognise and achieve their fullest potential, so that they can make their best contribution to society.

 St Paul’s School is a place where:

·         everybody is welcomed and you are not alone

·         we pray together

·         we respect and care for everyone and everything around us.

 St Paul’s School sets high standards of learning and celebrates the achievements of each child. St Paul’s School is a place where everyone is different and everyone is important.

  Aim high, enjoy the challenge and meet with success.

 In support of this we will:

·Meet personal and social needs by promoting spiritual and moral values within a Christian context.

Provide a balanced curriculum with a wide range of stimulating learning activities so that children enjoy school and achieve high standards.

Have high yet realistic expectations of the whole child, to nurture the vulnerable, encourage and challenge the majority and extend the most able.

In the spirit of respect and co-operation, build a school community in which everyone feels safe, happy and valued as individuals.

Promote health and well-being at school so that it becomes an integral part of personal lifestyle.

Give children opportunities to make a positive contribution to school life and in the wider community.

Teach the value of money and the importance of looking after resources well.
