Welcome from the Headteacher
I am so very proud and honoured to welcome you on behalf of all the team at St Paul’s First School. We are an inclusive Church of England School where every child is valued and supported to achieve their very best. We are proud of our pupils, our staff and the positive atmosphere we create through our focus on Christian values.
We believe that children have just one childhood; we want their earliest school experience to be an exciting, magical journey, packed with inspirational and unforgettable learning experiences. We encourage our children to explore, to invent and to create. By steering their natural curiosity we develop children who are confident, bold and prepared to be challenged. Our children learn about, and have confidence in, themselves as learners. They set themselves goals and have high aspirations for their future. We aspire to build individual learning powers and enjoy an ethos that builds high levels of self-esteem; instils a strong determination to succeed and promotes a thirst for life-long learning.
The supportive ethos within the school enables pupils of all abilities to thrive as they grow and develop. We recognise the importance of achieving high standards as well as developing well rounded individuals. The school’s provision allows pupils to recognise the joy of achievement and our aim is to equip our pupils with the skills to become global citizens of the future, who are able to make a positive contribution to society.
We firmly believe that for this to be best achieved, we must establish a genuine partnership between home and school. We pride ourselves on open communication, so if you have any questions or comments regarding the web site or any other matter, please do not hesitate to contact either your child’s class teacher or me.
