Prospectus

Welcome to St Paul’s

Headteacher: Mrs S Gordon

Dear Parents and Carers

Thank you for choosing St Paul’s. We are so pleased that you have entrusted us with the care of your child at this important stage of his/her education. We believe that education is a partnership between the child, the home and the school. We look forward, therefore, to what we hope will be a constructive and positive working relationship in order to ensure the very best for your child.

The purpose of this prospectus is to enable you to learn a little more about the school before your child joins us. We hope that it will also be a valuable aid during the coming year if you have a query about procedures and expectations at St Paul’s.

We trust that the coming years will be both happy and fulfilling for your child. Please feel free to contact the school if you have queries. A telephone call to arrange a mutually convenient time would be a help to us all.

Sheila Gordon

Headteacher
