Governors

The Governing Body of St Paul’s would like to express their thanks to the leadership and staff of the school for their extraordinary hard work and commitment during the restrictions of the Covid19 Pandemic. This could never have been the first year in post that Mrs Maltese and Ms Levison could have anticipated and we are very grateful to them for their Wisdom, Endurance and Compassion in handling the constant changes and challenges each week provided for them. There has been an enormous amount of work done behind the scenes to ensure education was delivered safely to the children, much of which will continue over and above the normal workload for staff as we move into the Autumn term and we know we speak for many when we express our gratitude for the sacrifices staff have made to keep the children’s wellbeing paramount in every decision.

The Governors would like to wish our whole school community a restful summer and we look forward to welcoming everybody back in September.

Message from the Chair of Governors

I have been a Governor at St Paul’s since 2004 and I was privileged to take on the responsibility of Chair in September 2016.

In all my time here, I have been consistently impressed by and proud of the behaviour and work ethic of the pupils and the welcome they give to anyone who visits. On outings, strangers frequently compliment staff on our lovely children!

We are extremely proud of the wonderful family atmosphere at St Paul’s and the Governing Body strives to nurture it in all the decisions we make.

We have a skilled and hard-working staff, many of whom have been with us for many years, who are dedicated to ensuring that St Paul’s children receive a broad and enriching curriculum in a stimulating and safe learning environment. By the time each child leaves us we aim for them to have succeeded to the best of their abilities. St Paul’s pupils are recognisable long after they have left us and many come back to visit or for work experience.

As Governors we have three core functions which support the school:

  • Setting the strategic direction of the school
  • Creating robust accounting systems and holding the school to account
  • Ensuring financial probity

All this is underpinned by our well-integrated and inclusive Christian ethos that quietly pervades everything we do.
