At St Paul's C of E Primary School, we are educated for life with the love of God and Christian values at the heart of our school.

 

 Congratulations Muybridge House!

Well done to Muybridge House who were the overall winners on Sports Day.


 

Badges

Each child and member of staff is given a house badge when they first join St Paul’s which clearly identifies them as belonging to their given team. Badges should be worn each day. The team with the most house points will be awarded time on the grass and bark area on Friday break times. Only children who are wearing their badges will be allowed on these areas so please don’t forget to wear them! Replacement badges can be purchased for 10p from the school office at break time.

QUICK LINKS

Picton     Wilson     Muybridge     Wolsey

Each child and member of staff is allocated into a house team which they stay in throughout their time at St Paul’s. Siblings will be put into the same team. Our house system is based around famous figures with links to Kingston. House teams usually meet on a termly basis, at a meeting led by the Year 6 house captains and the teacher captain. In the autumn, new Year 6 captains (one boy and one girl) are chosen via an election.

House Captains:

Picton:  Mrs Ford, Thomas Foden (6B) and Henry Pidduck (6F)

Wilson: Mrs Randell, Jack Laurie (6R) and Bertie Read (6B)

Muybridge: Miss Harmsworth, Max Case (6B) and Bella McDonald (6B)

Picton

Cesar Picton (1755-1836)

Cesar was born in Sengal, Africa. When he was six years old, he came to work a servant in a grand house in Kingston. The family became very fond of him and when his employers died, they left him some money. He used the legacy to set himself up in business and became one of Kingston’s most respected merchants. He also bought a house on the high Street – Picton House – which still stands.

Wilson

Jacqueline Wilson (Born 1945)

Jacqueline Wilson is one of the nation’s favourite authors. She has written lots of chidlren’s books, including Girls in Love, The Story of Tracey Beaker and The Illustrated Mum. Her novels have won many awards and are the most borrowed from libraries. She was made a Dame in 2008 and lives in Kingston.

Muybridge

Edward Muybridge (1830-1904)

Edward Muybridge was born in Kingston and died in a house in Liverpool Road – you can see his plaque on the house wall. He travelled to the United States, where he became a renowned and respected photographer. He then went on to invent the zoopraxiscope, a device that projected motion pictures – movies. So one of the forefathers of film was a local man.

Wolsey

Thomas Wolsey (1471-1530)

Thomas Wolsey was an advisor to King Henry VIII. He became a Cardinal and the Lord Chancellor and was responsible for bringing about many changes in Tudor England. He also built Hampton Court Palace, where King Henry later lived. In Year 5, we learn about the Tudors and visit Hampton Court Palace.

 

House Points

House point are given out by all members of staff for pupils who show good work and behaviour. They are posted into a box in the entrance hall and counted at the end of each week. The winning house earn extra time on the grass and bark area on Fridays. A running total is also kept so that the winning team at the end of a half term have a MUFTI day. These results are displayed prominently in the hall.

House Sponsored Spellathon

A massive well done to everyone who took part in this year’s spellathon. The children had a fun filled afternoon spelling in the ‘spellathon arena’. In round 1, children had the choice of spelling out loud for two points or writing the word down for one point. Round 2’s, spelling backwards, was a challenge for all but we persevered! A big thank you to all the parents who gave up their afternoon to help. We couldn’t have done it without you.
