Our very youngest pupils are also assessed and have made impressive progress in 4+

  • 89% of our pupils met the standard in reading

Lastly our year 1 pupils all undertook the National Phonic Screen Assessment with a staggering 100% meeting the expected standard and many significantly exceeding it!

Congratulations to all of our children and a huge thank you to the staff at St Paul’s and of course to our parents for all the support we know you give to your children.



The children each spent lots of time in their new classes to ensure a head start for them at the end of August. Our new 4+ children enjoyed two great sessions with us, including lunch with their parents. We are really looking forward to them starting at the end of August.



The summer BBQ was a great success again this year. We had a huge crowd and a fabulous time and weather! Non-stop sunshine – perfect! Huge thanks go to the PTA for organising this lovely event.

The money raised will go towards extras for your children. Thank you to everyone who helped and everyone who came to enjoy the evening.

At the end of another successful year, we say goodbye and farewell to some very valued staff. Mrs Blackwell leaves us after 9 years teaching across KS2 and looking our KS2 curriculum. She is going on to a new school as a Nurture Teacher and we wish her all the luck in the world. Thank you for everything. We miss you already.

Mr Wood leaves us at the end of his temporary maternity leave cover post. We wish him well in his new school and the next phase of his career.

Mrs Jordan also finishes her temporary post where she became a main part of the team instantly and shared her skills in every year group from 4+ to Year 6. She also looked after our children at Forest School which was an added bonus!

Good luck to you both and we will hopefully see Mrs Jordan again in the Autumn if we need any additional cover teacher time.



Thank you to all of our parents who joined their child/ren for a delightful Afternoon Tea, which was our thank you for all their help over the last year. Thanks also go to Mrs Schofield and her lovely Grandson, Henry, for providing all the yummy cakes and endless supplies of tea and juice for the children.



Our key dates for events during the next academic year will be posted on our website ready for the new academic year. PLEASE MAKE A NOTE OF THE DATES THAT ARE RELEVANT TO YOUR CHILD IN YOUR OWN PERSONAL DIARIES. As much as we would love to we can’t promise to remind you of everything that goes on in our busy school. This means that you will need to regularly check the website. Key dates are also in the partnership book.

Have a great summer and see you again at the end of August.

Yours sincerely



Mrs C Hurst BA(Hons) PGCE NPQH NLE
