Engage-Inspire-Achieve. The Christian Family of St Paul’s, moving forward together, an exciting, caring and happy school, where everyone succeeds.
Our Vision is theologically centered on the words of St Paul in 1 Thessalonians 5:11
‘Therefore encourage one another and build each other up’.
Our Vision of ‘Engage-Inspire-Achieve: The Christian Family of St Paul’s, moving forward together, an exciting, caring and happy school, where everyone succeeds’ ensures we aim to create a caring and happy school by showing (in words and actions) our encouragement to everyone in our school family. We aim to ‘build each other up’, recognising each other’s role in the family of St Paul’s and recognising all the hopes and plans God has for us as we move forward together.
Our values show how our vision can be shared. At St Paul’s, we believe it is important to develop our understanding of values by which to live and which help to develop a moral and spiritual awareness. We seek to explore the meanings of the values and their significance through daily acts of worship. Whilst these values are inclusive of human values, we try to anchor them in the Christian faith by relating them to the Bible through stories and readings. We attend services at St Paul’s church to celebrate Harvest, Christingle, Christmas, Easter and our Welcome and Leavers Services. Families and the local community are warmly invited to join us on all of these occasions.
We follow a value each half term:
Autumn 1- Trust
Autumn 2- Peace
Spring 1- Respect
Spring 2- Service
Summer 1- Truthfulness
Summer 2- Friendship
Year 2 –
Autumn 1- Generosity

Our Worship Values
All of our children in Year Two and Year Six receive their own Bible, thanks to St Paul’s Church and the charity Bibles for Children.
27th November – Today we visited Church for the Christingle service. We celebrated Jesus as the light of the world. The children shared songs and the Year 2’s and 6’s had their christingles lit.
