School of Sanctuary Service

Thank you to everyone who joined us for the School of Sanctuary assembly on last Friday. A school of     sanctuary is a school that is committed to being a safe and welcoming place for all, especially those seeking sanctuary; people whose lives may have been in danger in their own country, those who have trouble at home or who are just looking for a space of safety. It is a school that helps its pupils, staff and the wider community understand what it means to be seeking sanctuary, and which extends a warm welcome to everyone as equal, valued members of the school community. St Paul’s is a school which is proud to fully embrace all of these principles.


Office Hours

Please note the school office is open from 8.15am to 3.45pm, and we try and ensure someone is available at all times. However there may be occasions when the office staff are elsewhere so please do feel free to ring the doorbell is there is no one in the office. We also have an answer service for calls.

Mrs Reynolds will be absent from school from Wednesday 7th to Friday 9th February, so please bear with us as we may be slightly understrength for these 3 days. Thank you for your patience.


Breakfast Club

We are asking all parents who are drop off their child to breakfast club to escort them all the way into school. Breakfast Club is flexible and we do not ask for advance bookings. We therefore do not know in advance which children are expected each day. If they are free to make their own way into school and do not arrive safely, we may be unaware and therefore may not be in a position ta raise the alarm until registers are taken at 9.00am. Thank you for your understanding.


ParentPay Balances

Please could we remind all parents to regularly check and maintain their ParentPay balance for school lunches and breakfast club? We are unable to offer you child a school dinner if your outstanding debt exceeds £11.00, without prior agreement, (one week’s worth of meals) and a packed lunch will be required. Similarly, if your breakfast club debt exceeds £10.00 we will not be able to welcome your child to Breakfast Club. Thank you.


Football Success!

Our St Paul’s team have been on top form over the last couple of weeks! They played brilliantly at the GPSFA 5-a-side tournament on Wednesday 24th: they won 3 of their 4 matches, drew the 4th and only conceded 1 goal. This fantastic performance got them through to the finals, which were held on Friday 26th. Again, they put on a strong display, narrowly losing to Hempstead in the semi-final. Well done to Levi, Karl, Gabko, Sopuru, Aman and Enzo, plus a special mention to our Coach of the Week, Mr Gill!
