We have close connections with Scotforth St Paul’s Church of England Primary School, just up the road from the church. Clergy regularly take assemblies, participate in lessons and welcome the children and staff into church for worship. The vicar is a member of the governing body, together with other foundation members nominated by the PCC. St Paul’s also has contact and involvement with other schools in the local community.
Many of the children who worship at St Paul’s apply for a place at Scotforth St Paul’s Church of England Primary School and Ripley St Thomas Church of England Academy. The vicar or churchwarden is normally asked by the schools to countersign application forms confirming regularity of attendance at church. In order to make this process as accurate and as pastoral as possible, parents and guardians are asked to register with St Paul’s their intentions to apply to a church school as soon as they start attending church. Appointments can be made via the Parish Office.
