Welcome to Caton St Paul’s C.E. Primary School


One family, belonging, believing and learning together’’.

‘So in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others’
Romans 12:5

We belong to a school that children and staff feel proud to be part of; where there is mutual support amongst families and the wider community, and where everyone feels valued.

We believe that God’s love is central to all that we do; that with His love, we grow in faith. We love and respect one another and we take care of the world in which we live.

We learn together in an inspiring and secure environment, where our children’s unique skills and abilities are recognised and nurtured, preparing them for life’s challenges and opportunities.

Our SIAMS inspection report has just arrived (21.12.23). We are very proud of this report and feel it sums up everything we represent as a school community. Please click here to read it.

Welcome to our school website and indeed our school, Caton St. Paul`s Church of England Primary School. Our school is situated in the beautiful Lune Valley, within the village of Brookhouse, approximately 5 miles east of Lancaster. Currently, we have 169 children on roll, aged 4 to 11. We also have a Pre-school on site, catering for 3-4 year olds.

The school prides itself on its caring, distinctively Christian culture, where children are encouraged to love learning and achieve their goals. Children joining Caton St. Paul’s will flourish together in a school that sets high standards and expectations for all its stakeholders. We aim to provide an environment, in which you and your family will feel confident and where your children will flourish.  `Everyone is treated with a high level of care and deep respect for the uniqueness of each individual. As a result, the school is a strong community with a culture of wellbeing in which adults and pupils thrive.’ SIAMS 

Our dedicated and professional staff team promote self-confidence, self-assurance and self-discipline, but take care to couple this with excellent teaching, continuous monitoring of progress and consultation between children, teachers and parents. This is why our school has a well-earned reputation for fulfilling the unique potential of all of our children to the full.

`Pupils enter this welcoming school with a buzz of excitement. Pupils, including children in the early years, are happy in school. They are polite and enthusiastic and behave well.  OFSTED

We also run a successful wraparound care club, giving parents the opportunity to access excellent quality childcare between 7:45am – 8:45am and 3:10pm – 5:30pm. The WAC club liaises closely with teachers to ensure children are accessing excellent development opportunities.

The desire of all Staff and Governors is to continue developing the most creative and exciting school that we can, so that all children are inspired to learn and develop a wide range of skills that will equip them for life after Primary School!
