We are proud to be part of CDAT (Chester Diocese Academies Trust). Our school, St Paul's, Stalybridge has been an Academy since March 1st 2017. We were the second school to join the trust and have had the joy of seeing the trust grow from strength to strength.
We are a Church of England school built on our Christian values and vision.
Our Vision Statement for St Paul's CE Primary is:
For all in our school to flourish in body, mind and spirit and to experience, 'life in all its fullness' (John 10:10) in a nurturing community, rooted in our Christian values.
Our Christian Values:
love, respect, compassion, forgiveness, courage, perseverance and truthfulness
St Paul's is a place with love at its centre. We aspire for our pupils to be happy, considerate, respectful and caring to all. To show compassion and forgiveness to others. We strive for our pupils to be confident, to be articulate, be true to themselves and others, to be independent, resilient and courageous, have high aspirations for themselves and others, and achieve their own potential.
For all in our school to flourish in body, mind and spirit and to experience, ‘life in all its fullness’ (John 10:10) in a nurturing community, rooted in our Christian values.
All aspects of our school life are guided by Christian values.
Our mission is to provide a Christian environment where:
We expect all children, parents and staff to work together so the needs of all children can be met in a calm and friendly atmosphere. All children are different but each child should be achieving their own potential in every area.
We consider education to be both the learning of academic skills and the development of a pupil as an individual.
