St Pauls Church of England Gloucester

Head’s Report………

It is always in the last few weeks of term and the significant events (new intake meetings, SATs results, Sports Day and the Y6 Leaver’s Service) that I use the opportunity to reflect on our successes as a school and how important our pupils’ primary years are. Never has this been as poignant as this year when as a parent of a Y6 pupil, my oldest son moves on to the next chapter of his life.

Today, I am reminded of how blessed I am to be the Headteacher of such a wonderful community and what an impact we make on our children’s lives through working together. I would like to wish our     amazing children, supportive parents and governors and hardworking staff a very happy and safe summer holidays. We will look forward to seeing you refreshed and ready to do it all again in September.

Some Sad Farewells

This term we bid a very sad farewell to Mr Millington as he leaves us to take on his first headship at Hartpury C of E Primary School. We wish him every success with his new   adventure , and are sure he’ll be brilliant!! He would like to say thank you to all the   parents who have been so supportive over the 2½ years he has been at St Paul’s. We are also forlorn to say goodbye to Mr Parish and Miss Bham, who are both leaving us for a new life away from Gloucester (but not together!).  

and some new arrivals….

We are pleased to welcome some new faces to the St Paul’s team in September. Miss Hall joins as Year 2 teacher, Mrs Pickering joins us Teaching Partner in Year 5, and Mrs Bolton (who you may know as our Spanish teacher) joins us Teaching Partner in Year 6. Please join us in welcoming them to our team!
