A Warm Welcome…

I am sure you will join us in welcoming our new members of staff to St Paul’s.

Miss Williams has joined us as Lead Practitioner for Pastoral Support and Well Being, carrying on the exceptional work done by Mrs Geatches. Miss Andrews joins us as a Teaching Partner in Phase 1, and Miss Richards completes our Midday Supervisor team.


Exciting News!

On Friday June 8th, we are taking Year 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 to KidZania in West London.

KidZania is an indoor city, run by children, where children will get a fun and realistic insight into the adult world by taking part in a choice of ‘jobs’ which will earn them kidZos. They have the opportunity to independently choose from over 60 real-life activities and test their skills in a variety of   professions. There are also leisure activities such as the Climbing Building, where they will need to spend their kidZos. When your kids earn 75 kidZos they can open a bank account and receive their very own bank card, just like mum and dad! We will travel to London by coach, having a tour of some of our capital’s best known sites   before our visit to KidZania. The coach will leave school at approximately 7.45am and, traffic permitting, we hope to return to school by 7.45pm. More details will be provided closer to the time.

Please note that we consider this a compulsory trip, and we expect all children from Years 2 to 6 to take part. There is no charge at all to parents.


World Book Day

A huge thank you to everyone who made an exceptional effort for World Book Day,       despite the snow!! There were some amazing costumes on display as usual, but special congratulations go to our year group winners: Keira, Oliver, Coral, Reuben, Millie, Vanesa, Victoria and Natalia.



A reminder next week is Celebration of Sport week at St Paul’s! From Monday to Thursday, children must come into school wearing their PE kit (including house t-shirts) with daps or trainers. It is vital that your child has the appropriate footwear this week. Friday 23rd is “Sports Relief” and children can come to school in their own clothes or any sportswear of their choosing. However, they must bring their PE kits in with them as we are going to participate in the Sport Relief Mile (Yr 2-6 ), which involves running around the playground 22 times! Phase 1 will be running the Sport Relief half mile (11 ½ times around the playground). We are asking for a voluntary contribution of £1.00 for this worthwhile charity, raising money for people in need in the UK and around the world.


A Polite Reminder

Please could we remind all parents that bicycles and scooters should not be ridden in the playground, or anywhere on school premises, as this is against our Health and Safety policy. Scooters and bikes should be ‘walked’ to the bicycle sheds. If your child arrives late, they will not be able to access the sheds and will need to leave their bike or scooter at the entrance to school.

We must also ask all parents not to allow their children to play on the playground equipment before and after school as we are not covered by insurance at these times and cannot accept responsibility for any accidents that may occur. Thank you for your understanding.


A special mention to Leon in Year 4 who won the Eastgate Shopping   Centre’s Mothers’ Day Poetry Competition.

Well done Leon on composing a beautiful poem about your mum!
