A Voluntary Academy

Aspire not to have more but to be more – St Oscar Romero




At St Paul's Catholic Primary School we aim to inspire each child who joins our school, regardless of their starting point, to want to learn and discover in a secure and loving environment, by receiving an inspirational curriculum that is adapted to meet the needs of pupils, whilst being ambitious and challenging for all. This is underpinned by our Mission Statement, which is lived out each day, as we strive for excellence in all areas of our work and cherish each unique person in our care. Our curriculum aims to promote the well-being of children, support the disadvantaged, children with SEND and vulnerable pupils.  By nourishing the growth of knowledge, skills, faith and values, we want all our children to take their places in society eventually, as compassionate, contributing and thinking adults.
