Any worries?

At St Paul’s you don’t need to wait until a parents’ evening before reporting a concern. We think it is best to share any worries sooner rather than later so that small problems don’t become much larger issues.


The best way to get some meaningful time for proper discussion with any of the teachers is to arrange an appointment via the office. It is fine to use e-mail, telephone or to call in to request an appointment. If you have any worries please don’t hesitate to get in touch. 

School Office

For lots of things, the school office can be the best place to get the information you need. We have a very skilled team who will do their very best to help. They will also arrange appointments with other members of staff.

Class Teachers

Usually the best place to start to resolve a worry about anything concerned with learning, is by talking to the class teacher. We have a brilliant team of highly skilled professionals at St Paul’s. It is not necessary to wait for a parents evening. If you have a question or concern about any aspect of your child’s life in school, you can make an appointment to get things resolved quickly.

Pastoral Support Manager

We also have a dedicated and qualified Pastoral Support Manager, Mrs Millington-Jones who is often involved in all sorts of nurture and supportive care work, in partnership with class-teachers and parents, to help remove any barriers to learning, including issues with confidence, self-esteem or friendship difficulties. Mrs Millington-Jones often meets with parents during the school day.

Learning Support Assistants

We have a large team of learning support assistants, who are an essential part of our educational provision at St Paul’s. They assist teaching and learning in very varied ways and work with lots of children in all year groups.

School Business Manager

Ms Collins is our School Business Manager and is often the best person to talk if you have any financial concerns or questions. Arrangements for payments for trips and ‘ free-school-meals' are regular examples of the types of issues with which Ms Collins can provide assistance.

We do ask for voluntary contributions to make some special events possible. For example,  such the skiing trip to the Snowdome in Tamworth. No child will be restricted from taking part in activities at St Paul’s for financial reasons.

Assistant Headteachers

You can also speak to any of the Assistant Heads, who will also be very happy to help to resolve any difficulties. Our assistant heads and deputy headteacher are very experienced educationalists who regularly deal with the most complex and sensitive issues affecting children and families in school. 

Special Educational Needs or Disability

All children require an education which is carefully tailored to their individual needs. We are very proud of our skills in including everyone and make sure every child meets their full potential. Our coordinator in this work, working closely with classteachers is our assistant headteacher, Mrs McEnery.


Our headteacher Mr Teale is  also happy to meet with parents to address any worries or concerns. Mr Teale is a National Leader of Education and has worked in primary education for 22 years. He has been a primary school headteacher for 13 years.
