Our Mission Prayer

We believe that we are all God’s work of art. We strive to respect and care for each other and to use our talents to do our best. By doing this, we are ‘Learning in the Light of Christ’

Welcome To Pope Paul Catholic Primary School.

I am delighted to welcome you to our school’s website. We are a small friendly school where the uniqueness of every individual is valued and relationships are based on respect.

Our Catholic ethos permeates all areas of school life and is at the heart of our philosophy of education. The Gospel values underpin our aim to provide an outstanding, inspiring education for all.

lhWe value our strong links with parents, our Parish of Our Lady and St Vincent and the wider community.

It is our vision for every child to

  • be happy, caring and responsible,
  • develop a lifelong passion for learning
  • achieve their potential
  • embrace the challenges of the 21st century, whilst holding on to their Christian values and duty to care for all in God’s world.

“The school’s work to promote pupils’ personal development and welfare is outstanding.  Pupils are very happy, courteous and friendly. They are very respectful of one another and offer the same level of respect to all their teachers and visitors. All pupils follow the values contained within the school’s mission prayer, which guides them to value, care for and respect all people so they can become their best.”    Ofsted Inspection Report June 2016

“The school mission statement, ‘Learning in the Light of Christ’ is actively lived by all members of the school community…..

Overall, teaching is good and often outstanding ensuring all pupils get the best quality lessons. Creativity in learning is enhanced by the outstanding outdoor learning environment.

Teachers have high expectations of pupils and behaviour for learning is outstanding across the school. The work in pupils’ books is well presented and of a high standard.” RE Inspection Report December 2019
