Time to Talk Meetings are scheduled for next week, and we still have a few slots available. If you have not yet made an appointment please come to the office. We are asking parents to arrive five minutes before their time in order to check and update your data collection sheet. It is vitally important that we have up-to-date contact information for you. Thank you for your cooperation.


Don’t forget to regularly check our school Facebook page (Parents of St Paul’s C of E Primary School Gloucester). Updates, reminders and news items are regularly shared on our page and   parents have the opportunity to ask questions. If you are new to our school and use Facebook please search for our page and request access to join our Facebook family.


If you are considering employing a private tutor for your child outside of school, please remember it is your responsibility to ensure they have a full DBS check, and are cleared to work with children. Thank you.


Could we please remind parents that all medical, dental and optician appointments should, whenever possible, be made outside of school hours? We appreciate this is not always       possible, but we are seeing a marked increase of children absent for these appointments. If your child has a hospital or clinic appointment please bring a copy of the appointment letter to the office where the absence can be recorded correctly. Thank you for your cooperation.


'Ello, ‘ello, ‘ello…., what have we here?!

Year 2 turned ‘street detectives’ this week and they went on a investigation walk to support this terms topic. The visited many different local areas including Gloucester Quays, the library and the docks to see how much has changed over they years. They also visited the cathedral where they saw the poppy waterfall that has been installed for this year’s remembrance service. Since their walk, they have created maps using Ordnance Survey symbols, and will soon be doing some interesting work on how buildings in Gloucester have changed from past to present.


In order to support Children in Need, we will be having a non-uniform day on Friday 16th November.  Children may choose to dress in spots or in Pudsey's colours of yellow/red/white/blue/purple/green or school uniform does remain a perfectly viable alternative.  (All children must still bring their coats to school, many thanks). As with all non-uniform days, we are suggesting a voluntary contribution of a minimum of £1.00.



Thank you to all our parents who were able to take the time to come and visit it us for our open day. As always, it was lovely to see so many familiar faces, and to have the opportunity to meet families who may be joining us next year!
