I am delighted that you are considering St Paul's Church of England Primary School in Sunderland, for the first stage of your son or daughter’s education. The school is a “good” (Ofsted 2013) school for children aged 3-11 years and we are on a journey to become outstanding. Children are admitted to our nursery on a part or full time basis, which is part of our excellent Early Years provision. Children in Reception to Year 6 attend full time. We are very proud of our school and there are excellent facilities for our children.
The school is in the Wearmouth Deanery and we worship in our school every day. Our children feed into Venerable Bede Church of England Secondary Academy, so that a continuous pathway of Christian education is offered to all our children.
I hope that you find this website interesting and valuable as you make a decision about your child’s journey in education and that you take the opportunity to meet with me and discover what our family feel school is able to offer your child.
Our mission is to work continuously in partnership with the local community to ensure every child is valued as an individual child of God. We will promote a love of lifelong learning to prepare our children to be successful citizens of our ever changing world. We will encourage responsible risk taking, creativity and independence within a Christian ethos.
St Paul's may be the first experience which your child will have of school and we are all keen to see that this is a very positive experience which encourages a love of learning from the very first day.
We believe that we can achieve the best for your child by developing a close partnership between home and school. This website is intended to give you more information about the life of our school and the learning which ensues.
Throughout the primary years there are regular meetings with parents and opportunities for you to share in your child’s education within our wider community, which we strongly encourage you to be involved in.
We look forward to developing a partnership with you and welcoming you and your child into the St Paul's family.
