Catholic schools are founded on the person of Jesus Christ and guided by Gospel values. At St Paul’s we witness to this by placing faith development in the context of everyday life. This provides the framework for the consideration of Pastoral Care in our school. Pastoral Care underpins the very concept of the Catholic identity, which is nurtured daily by all members of the community to establish an emotionally, socially and spiritually healthy environment to which children, staff and parents can belong, and where they can all grow and develop the potential which is their God-given gift.
