Welcome to St Paul's CofE Primary School and Nursery

Dear Parents and Carers,

It is a pleasure to welcome you to our website and we hope you enjoy finding out about our school. Our motto is “Foundations for the Future” and we feel this embraces everything we do at St. Paul’s, whether your child is starting in our independent nursery “Wagtails” or you are enrolling your child into reception. There will be a warm welcome, as our Christian ethos gives a real community feel, to the school. We have strong links to our founder church of St. Paul’s in West Street and its benefice St. Michael’s. Our parish church St. Nicholas is next to the school and we have strong links to all three. We hold assembly every day and each Thursday the clergy come and conduct collective worship with the children.

St. Paul’s Primary is judged as a good school under the Ofsted framework (November 2017.) This has been consistent under my leadership over the last 13 years, with outstanding, in our Ofsted in 2009 . In the SIAMS Section 48 inspection of church schools (October 2015) we are good with outstanding for Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural education.

We are a recognised International School, being reaccredited for the fourth time with this important national award, with link schools in Uganda and Spain. We are nationally recognised for our teaching of Spanish, where the children leave the school with a high proportion of our year six class, reaching the equivalent of a pass at GCSE. In 2018/2019 St. Paul’s was the top school in Brighton and Hove for key stage two standards and third in Sussex.

We have an excellent, experienced staff, who work extremely hard, to offer a broad, balanced and exciting curriculum for the children. We are very creative in our approach and enhance topics with visits and visitors. Twice in the last 13 years we have been in the top 200 schools in the country for our standards.

We are very proud of all we achieve at St. Paul’s and our parents support the school community so well, with our fantastic 'Parents and Friends' events across the year.

I am always pleased to talk to parents when they are being shown around the school and if you are interested in finding out more please do not hesitate to email or ring the school to make an appointment to visit.

We look forward to welcoming you. Linda Dupret, Headteacher.




As I am sure you will appreciate things are a bit different in schools at the current time and we are having to do things slightly different from normal.

That sadly is the case for our popular NEW PARENT VISITS/TOURS.

Normally we would hold a number of visits with large numbers of parents touring the school during the working day to see all of the amazing learning taking place.

With the current situation and the safety of the children and staff paramount what we are proposing is something slightly different for those parents who are wanting to look around and visit St Paul's now with a view to sending their child to St Paul's in September 2021.

We are aware that some parents may still be very concerned about the ongoing Covid situation. I therefore feel we can offer small group chats and visits which should allow everyone to feel and be safe. These can take place in one place with limited numbers away from the rest of the school or in the school but not when children are present for their safety. 

This small group (maximum of 6 parents - only one parent from each family group) will take place every Thursday at 2.00 - 2.45pm.  This will not involve moving around the school.

During the short presentation and chat you will be told key information about the school and have the chance to ask any questions.

Sign up here for a small group (6 people in total) chat with the Headteacher by clicking on your preferred date it will take you to a form link to complete your details.  You will receive a confirmation email back.  The form will no longer be accessible once it is full up. 

To attend one of these meetings we would ask that you read and agree to the information before signing up.

  • You should not attend if you or any member of your household has any signs/symptoms of Covid.
  • You should not attend if you are currently isolating or quarantining.
  • It would be preferable if only one parent attend.
  • Wearing Facemasks is optional - it is up to you.
  • You will be asked to socially distance where possible and adhere to safe practise (hand sanitising) on entry and exit. 
  • Please keep other items with you to a minimum - bags, etc. 
  • You will be asked to sign in to attend when you arrive using a track and trace system and this information will be kept for 21 days after your meeting. 
  • We will require some basic contact details when you apply to attend. 

If you have any further questions or comments then please do not hesitate to contact the school office.
