‘’One family, belonging, believing and learning together’’.
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.
‘So in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others’
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, approx 5 miles east of Lancaster. Currently, we have 166 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, Christian atmosphere, where children are encouraged to love learning and achieve their goals. Children joining Caton St.Paul’s will grow 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. The latest Diocesan Inspection of December 2016 stated : `The sustained, outstanding achievement of all children is underpinned and nurtured by the transformative Christian ethos of the school`.
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 potential of all of our children to the full.
The Ofsted inspection of April 2017 noted : `The warm and friendly family ethos is a strong and distinguishable characteristic of the school’s culture`. Achievement information at all Key Stages remains above National and Lancashire averages.
We also run a successful wraparound care club, giving parents the opportunity to access excellent quality childcare between 7:45am – 8:50am 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!
