Chaplaincy Team Interviews 2022


On Wednesday 21st September we had our Chaplaincy Team interveiws with Fr Clement. All the children were very thoughtful in their interviews and spoke about things they could support the Catholic Life of the School with. Well done to all the children who took part.

St Matthew Feast Day


50 year celebration

On Wednesday 28th September we celebrated our 50th Anniversary here at St Paul's. We were very blessed to have our special Mass led by Bishop Paul and Fr Clement. Bishop Paul also visited each classroom and the children shared with him what they had been learning about and presented him with a gift. At lunchtime we had a picnic lunch with friends, family and community members. We were joined by ex pupils, staff, Governors from the school throughout the day. In the afternoon each child planted a daffodil bulb and then we buried our own time capsule.


Year 5 Harvest Festival

Our Year 5 class led our Harvest Festival for us on Friday 7th October. We invited the local food bank to come and talk to us about the work they do. Thank you for all your kind donations. 


St Luke Feast Day

Our house captains for St Luke, Kieron and Phoebe led our feast day celebrations for St Luke house on Tuesday 19th October. They prepared a short service for their house which included prayers, a Gospel reading and then reflections. The children then celebrated together as a house and had cake! 


Rosary Breakfast Club

During the month of October, our chaplaincy team led Rosary breakfast for our community every Friday.


All Saints Day - 1st November 2022

We welcomed Fr Clement to celebrate our All Saints Day Mass with us. During our Mass, our House Captains led our reflections about our 4 house saints linked to the Gospel reading from our Mass. We pray that we can be more like the saints with the help of Jesus' love and guidance

Caritas - Imagining Futures Project led by the Chaplaincy Team

Imagining Futures is a new project for primary schools to celebrate Caritas Westminster’s tenth anniversary. This two-part project encourages students to have a positive, hopeful view of the future through collective imaginings, the creative arts, and social action.

Part 1: Imagining a Future gives students a space to exercise their collective imaginations and envision a hopeful view of their local community in ten years’ time. The students will express that vision through the creative arts, whether that be traditional artwork, sculpture, poetry, prose, playwriting, or any other medium that they and their teacher sees fit.

Part 2: Hope for the Here and Now allows students to take small, meaningful, impactful steps towards the vision they created in Part 1 by planning and enacting a social action project in their local community. In seeing the impact they can have, students will learn that the vision they imagined is not only possible but one they can (and should) have a hand in working towards. 

Created to enhance the Catholic life of the schools that take part, expand the students’ understanding of Catholic Social Teaching, and connect schools to their local communities, the Imagining Futures project will start in September 2022. 


Jesse Tree 2022

To help us with our advent journey each day we will be opening a baubal on our Jesse Tree. Behind each baubal is a picutre of the Bible reading by different children. 


Advent Mass


Christmas Jumper Day 2022

This year we celebrated Christmas Jumper Day on Thursday 8th Decemeber 2022.

In our whole school assembly, we learnt about the purpose of the day and how it links with our Catholic Social Teaching Principles of- Dignity, Solidarity, the Common Good, Option for the Poor, Peace and Creation and Environment.

We discussed how each of these principles are reflected in us supporting the day.

Parent and Parish Advent Service

Our Chaplaincy Team and Fr Clement led our parent/parish advent reflection service. They then provided refreshments and prayer cards. 

Racial Justice Sunday, 5th February

The theme for Racial Justice for this entire year is:

All are included in the mission of Christ and His Church. Let us walk together, pray together and work together

Each class took part in a difference activity to learn more about this. We have created a whole school display board to share our work with you.

Catholic Children Society Lent Day 2023

This year’s appeal is inspired by Pope Francis’s call to ‘build bridges, not walls’ and find ways to connect and help others in their time of need. Every penny raised by us will support the work of CCS with local disadvantaged children and families. Our Chaplaincy team arranged on some fun activities in the afternoon for the children to take part in and build bridges with each other by spending time working together in a range of different activities. Children brought in their Lent collection boxes and donations for the CCS. Thank you to all those who took part.

Chaplaincy Retreat Day 2023

St Paul's Chaplaincy team had a wonderful opportunity to attend St Edmunds College and Prep School along with other local primary schools for a Chaplaincy Retreat Day.

The children learnt more about the 6 principles of Catholic Social Teaching, Peace, Solidarity, Dignity, Creation, The Common Good and Care for the poor and vulnerable, along with having a wonderful experience working with other primary schools and sharing liturgy in the Chapel.

The Chaplaincy Team had a lovely day and the children were a credit to our school.

Crowning of Mary service

It was lovely to see so many children and their families make crowns to crown Mary with during our crowning of Mary service.

Our new school prayer area!

Thank you for all the hard work, care and dedication making Christ the center of all we do here at St Paul's Primary School!

Virtues Project - July 2023

This year's song theme for the Summer Music Event took place on Monday 10th July 2023 and linked with our Catholic Faith and Virtues.

Each song sung by the children at St Paul's School will link to our learning and celebration of the virtues of Faith, Hope, Love, Wisdom, Justice, Courage, Self-control and Joy.  

This theme has been a whole school RE Virtues project linking with Music and Art .  The work produced by the children and our updated Prayer Garden looks amazing!

Thank you to all children, staff and Fr Clement for his  blessing and everyone's dedication in helping myself - Mrs Costanzo and Mrs Worton-Geer in achieving this.
