Welcome to our website.  We hope you find it informative and interesting and a valuable insight into life here at Westleigh St Paul’s.

At St Paul’s we are passionate about learning and growing in a safe, nurturing and welcoming environment.

Our Christian ethos encompasses all aspects of school life shown in our mission statement.

We provide the children with lots of opportunities for first hand experiences to enhance their learning, and strive towards all children making progress according to their abilities.

Our learning challenge curriculum enables us to do this in a creative meaningful way.

Above all, we believe that learning should be fun and if you visit our school, that will be evident by the smiles you will see on the children’s faces.

Our motto is “Working Together, Playing Together” and this is something staff, children, parents and governors believe in, resulting in a happy school where children can reach their full potential!

I have really missed all your different characters and smiley faces over the last few months while this nasty virus has been about.

I am writing this letter to you all to let you know that I will not be joining you back at school in September for lots more learning, laughter and fun. After 30 years at St. Paul’s I have decided that it is time for my next exciting adventure, just as it is time for yours, changing classes, teachers, and schools.

It has been a joy and a pleasure to teach you all. Over many years, I have watched you work, learn, and grow so much and I am proud of your achievements. Every day with you all has been an adventure, and I will cherish those memories   forever.

As we all move forward, remember to make good choices in life, the world is yours, aim high, and reach for the stars.


Remember you have become like family to me, so when you see me out and about please come over and speak to me, tell me about your achievements, BUT don’t forget how bad I am with names, unless you want me to call you sweetheart or treasure, remind me of your name, should it slip my mind.

Wishing you all every happiness and success in the future.

Mrs Ann Caton
