Welcome to St Paul's

Church of England Primary School

Welcome Back to St Paul’s!

Welcome back every one, we hope you had a fantastic summer with your family and loved ones! School starts back for children in Year 1-6 on Monday 6th September 2021 at 8.45am.

If your child is in Nursery or Reception we have staggered starts so please call the office to find out your child’s start date if you do not have it. The office will be open from Wednesday 1st September, but please note that admin staff will be part of INSET training so may not be available immediately. Please leave a message on the answer phone and someone will get back to you.

All children in Year 1-6 will now be able to enter the school grounds via the main KS1 playground gate from 8.30am and collection at the end of the day will be at 3.15pm. The bell for the beginning of the school day will go promptly at 8.45am so please make sure your child is on time. From now on we will be using the KS1 playground as the drop off and collection of ALL children in Year 1-6, as we always used to. EYFS (Nursery and Reception classes) will continue to use the gate by the EYFS classrooms on Penrose Street.

A link to the revised Risk Assessment will be in our first newsletter and will also be on the Key info tab above. We are very much looking forward to the children being back and having a successful academic year.
