Our Mission And Core Values
Welcome to St Paulinus’ faith page. As a Catholic School, we believe that every person is created “in the image and likeness of God” (Genesis) to grow in grace and knowledge as they journey to the fullness of life in Christ. We believe that God made us all “unique and yet equal” (Colossians) and together in the world we live, learn and love in the light of Christ (John), whether at home, school, Church or work.
St Paulinus prides itself on being warm and welcoming. Every member of the community from child to staff to parent to parishioner is respected and seen as part of God’s family. Our high expectations and high standards are reflected in everything that we do and staff strive to give every child the best learning opportunities possible.
We aim to help children develop in their journey of faith in a positive learning environment and we believe that our school will make a valuable contribution to their development. We value diversity and respect people of other faiths –we are a fully inclusive Catholic Primary School. It is a secure and nurturing environment where children can develop their many gifts and talents, whatever they may be. We believe that Christ is at the centre of all that we do and therefore we offer every child a broad, balanced and relevant Curriculum in order to meet their spiritual, emotional, moral, intellectual and physical needs and to prepare them for the responsibilities of adult life. Academic excellence is one of our goals but we also value and nurture those special gifts that make each child unique.
Home/ School/ Parish links are vital. We value the contribution our parents make to school life and value the support offered by or local parish. Together, we ensure that St Paulinus remains a very special place for all.
We hope you find the information in these pages useful – I recommend sharing the online worships as a family at home and talking about our theme for the week through our statements to live by.
A great thank you to all the children, staff and parents who have contributed to the following pages and those who help keep them up and running.
