St. Paul's Church of England Primary School

Our Ethos

St. Paul's Church of England Primary School is a school which seeks to develop each child's potential to the maximum through the provision of the best education, our faith in God and a strong partnership between children, parents, carers, staff, governors and the wider community.

We are a creative, forward thinking Church of England Primary School that aims for 'Excellence for all' throughout the school. We work in partnership with families; we nurture self-belief and inspire a love of learning, encouraging all to become able and successful, through empowerment, and being responsible members of the community.

We will preserve and develop the school's Christian character and maintain partnerships with our local church and with Rochester Diocese.

We adopt the following Christian Values as guiding principles that underpin the ethos of St. Paul's: Wisdom, Honesty and Courage. Our whole school community embodies these values in addition to our School Values: inquistive, forward-thinking and expressive. 

Children are at the heart of our school community and it is our aim to ensure they receive the very best education, academically, morally, socially and spiritually.

At St. Paul's Church of England Primary School pupils will be enthusiastic learners with a thirst for knowledge and a desire to challenge themselves, able to persevere and work together to achieve their aspirations in a safe, caring and secure learning environment. Each child is valued by the members of staff who work with them, nurturing, motivating, inspiring and empowering. We all recognise pupils' individuality and encourage them to become independent learners, make right choices, and fulfil their aspirations ensuring that they achieve their full potential, which will lead on to success in the future.

Our Vision, Mission, Christian Values and Aims are met through the whole school community, staff, governors, pupils, parents, carers and the wider community. We all work together to ensure high standards are met and maintained, ensuring that the children have a wealth of opportunities to succeed and flourish.
