Head Teacher's Welcome

Farington Moss St. Paul's is an inclusive school where every child in our care really does matter. We pride ourselves in having a hardworking and committed team of professionals who strive to achieve the highest standards possible within an environment of Christian love and care. This ensures that all our children are able to experience high levels of self-esteem.

We want your children to be happy, hardworking and achieve their full potential in all aspects of their development and we will challenge and encourage their learning during their time in school. Our philosophy is of a child centred approach to education. The staff are skilled at assessing each pupils individual level of development and then supporting them to moving, at their own pace, towards their full potential. This approach leads us to provide learning opportunities that start with what children already know, reproduce real-life experiences, and encourage children to think imaginatively and make choices intelligently.

We work hard to create a lively, stimulating and purposeful learning environment that ensures your children develop a love for learning and enjoy their school years.

We deliver a well planned curriculum and high priority is given to teaching reading, writing and language skills across all subjects as well as mathematical, scientific, technological and creative skills. In addition, your children will build confidence, develop self-reliance, learn to make decisions and develop the ability to articulate feelings and ideas.

As a church school, with close links to the church at St. Paul's, we believe that the Christian faith underpins all that we do in school and permeates all aspects of school life. We encourage the development of the children's social skills and seek to enable them to build relationships with other children and adults demonstrating courtesy, respect and sensitivity to the feelings and needs of others.

We want to work with parents to achieve success for every child in our care and recognise that the highest standards in both behaviour and all round achievement can only be reached with close co-operation between home and school. We look forward to working with you, parents and carers, as equal partners in your child's education so that together we can make your child's time with us both happy and successful.

You are welcome to arrange a visit to St. Paul's and see our children learning in a safe, stimulating and happy environment.
