“The overwhelming majority of parents who contributed to the school’s most recent survey and of those who spoke with inspectors said that their children enjoy school. They consider that their children are kept safe and the school makes sure behaviour is good and managed well by staff. Inspectors agree with this view.” Ofsted 2019
We want all children at St. Paul’s to feel safe and happy at school and we work hard to ensure a secure and welcoming environment.
We have two Mental Health First Aid trained members of staff – Miss Robinson and Miss Budsworth – who are able to offer support and signpost children and parents to any relevant agencies.
Our Learning Mentor, Miss Robinson, supports children in school, manages attendance and works with families.
She works with children who may need some extra support, either in class or in our Nurture room. This may be due to long or short term issues e.g a bereavement, anxiety, emotional or learning need.
School offers support for children through IReach, Play Therapy and Eco Therapy.
Each month whole school and class worship follow one of the Christian values as a theme e.g. friendship, courage, justice where all pupils are encouraged to listen to stories, discuss and develop their own understanding and practice of how to become a valued and tolerant member of our school.
Bullying is discussed regularly and children know that they are able to speak to any adult in school about problems they may have.
All children receive sex and relationships education appropriate to their age to prepare them adequately for the choices they may be called to make in the future.
We liaise closely with outside agencies to ensure that families are supported where necessary.
