St Paul's is a co-educational, Catholic, DEIS, primary school which strives to provide a well-ordered caring, happy and secure atmosphere where the intellectual, spiritual, physical, moral and cultural needs of all pupils are identified and addressed.While St Paul's is a school with Catholic ethos, it also has due recognition for other religions.

Our school promotes environmental awareness among its pupils and their families and encourages waste reduction and recycling in all forms.

St Paul's will encourage the involvement of parents through home/school contacts and through their involvement with the St Paul's NS Parents Association. St Pauls will endeavour to enhance the self esteem of everyone in the school community, to imbue in the pupils respect for people and property and to encourage them the idea of being responsible
