Mr S. Jordan - Headteacher
We are a Church of England School founded to serve the local community. Our purpose is to provide quality education, in partnership with parents and with the Church.
We aim to:
- Develop each child's full potential in all areas; whether academic, artistic, physical, social or spiritual.
- Celebrate children's particular talents and actively encourage achievement.
- Build a caring and supportive community in which all, adults and children, participate with a common sense of purpose and shared responsibility.
We believe that our School, true to its Christian ethos, provides an environment in which our children can grow as self-confident, responsible and valued members of this community.
Street Child World Cup
Street Child World Cup Summit Delegates at St Paul's
Members of St Paul's congregation John Wroe and Chris Rose were founders of the Street Child World Cup. In September 2013, the leaders of the street-connected children's projects from around the world gathered at St Paul's for a week-long Summit to prepare for the Rio tournament. Then, in March, 2014 over 20 volunteers from St Paul's worked with the teams in Rio de Janeiro for two weeks. The work goes from strength to strength and plans are underway for events around the Olympics in Rio in 2016 and the next Street Child World Cup in Russia in 2018.
Street Child World Cup in association with Save the Children provides a global platform for street children to be heard so that they receive the safety, support and opportunities that all children deserve. We use the power of sport and the arts to challenge the negative perceptions and treatment of street children transforming lives across the world.
In April 2014 over 230 former street children from 19 countries joined us in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil for a unique football tournament. These children stand united for the rights of street children across the world and they are not alone. Street Child World Cup received the support of Pope Francis, Prince William Duke of Cambridge, World Cup winners Gilberto Silva and Bebeto and football legend Zico. No child should have to live on the streets.
