Our school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. We expect all staff, visitors and volunteers to share this commitment.

If you have concerns regarding the safeguarding or welfare of any of our pupils, please contact Mrs G Smith (Designated Safeguarding Lead), or Mrs Wells (Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads) or Mr Fielding (Designated Safeguarding Leads reserve)

St Paul’s participates in Operation Encompass. Following the report of an incident of domestic abuse, school will be advised that the child has been involved. Please see school website for further details

The School Day

Breakfast Club

We operate a free breakfast club beginning at 8.20am each morning.  Children are provided with a nutritious breakfast and a calm environment, ready for a smooth transition to the beginning of the school day. Children attending Breakfast Club must be signed in by an adult and enter school through the main School Office Entrance.


Opening and closing times

The school gates open at 8.45am, and pupils are invited to come straight into school to settle themselves for the day.  Registration is from 8.55-9.00am.  The end of the school day is at 3.20pm (3.10pm for Reception Class)



Infant children have playtime in the morning from 10.20-10.35am.  Junior children have their morning break from 10.45-11.00am.  In the afternoon, Infant children have playtime from 2.05-2.20pm.  Junior children have 'brain break' times as needed in the afternoons.


Collective Worship

There is an act of collective worship each morning from 9.00-9.20am.  This is led by staff, clergy from St Paul's Church, or other visitors. On Fridays parents are invited to the school's Celebration Worship time at 9.00am. The children participate in a daily 'Worship Broadcast' which is led by children.  This takes place daily after lunch except for Friday when is is broadcast during Celebration Worship.
