Utkinton St. Paul's C of E Primary School


St Paul's Primary School and Nursery is a small Church of England primary school, set in idyllic grounds in the rolling Cheshire countryside, just outside the village of Tarporley.

Our school is celebrated for its friendly and nurturing qualities, with children growing up to become caring young people, who enjoy challenging themselves and achieving success. We want all children to 'learn to Soar, powered by God.'

Small class sizes allow us to offer children an individual, personalised education, built on their own needs. Through our exciting and creative approach to learning, we allow children to enjoy their experiences, whilst giving them the confidence to try new things and develop their understanding of life in modern Britain. We are proud to offer specialist sports, music and language lessons, as well as weekly Forest School sessions. Our curriculum is ambitious for all children and ensures children are well prepared for the next phase of their education; we are incredibly proud of our academic success, whilst also placing children's mental health and well-being at the heart of all we do.

School Vision

Learning to soar, powered by God.

Our vision is inspired by Isiah 40:31; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

Here at St Paul's, we want all of our pupils to grow, flourish and be able to fly when they leave us. All staff have high aspirations for every child and with our support and guidance, they can soar high.

School Mission Statement

Our school community is driven by the belief that all children are created in God’s image and are therefore unique, special and valued.Our Christian values underpin all that we do and enable us to nurture strong relationships with children, parents, staff, governors, the parish of St Helens and the local community.

It is our mission to provide children with the stimulating, safe environment, exciting curriculum, spiritual and moral guidance and physical and emotional well-being they need to flourish and become happy, confident, successful life-long learners who contribute thoughtfully to society in accordance with our values.

As educators, we strive to be ‘the best that we can be’ in order to inspire our children to become ‘the best that they can be.’ Values As professionals, we operate in an ever changing educational landscape. However, our pedagogical philosophy and values as a school remain constant and are embodied by our words, actions and passion every day.
