We pride ourselves on developing rounded, confident and aspirational children who are passionate about contributing to their much-loved school and community. We do this by giving children ownership and responsibility for many aspects of their school life.
The Values Committee provides children in school with a voice and a collective vision. Working with the Senior Leadership Team, the Values Committee are able to share and develop a new school vision for the future of St Paul's. The democratic process of forming a new Values Committee supports children in the understanding of the right to vote and the value of having an elected committee.
Head Boy and Head Girl
Our Head Boy and Head Girl are a very important part of the Values Committee.
The Role of Head Girl by Jess
To me, being Head Girl is a huge achievement because it is a once in a lifetime opportunity. I will put 100% effort into my jobs around school. I am looking forward to representing St Paul's and helping to organise the charity events. I will make the visitors feel welcome in our wonderful school. As a job in the playground, I will help children to make new friends if they feel left out or alone. As well as that, I will support the younger children throughout the whole year.
The Role of Head Boy by Toby
For me, being Head Boy is a great achievement and I think of myself as being very lucky as there are many people who applied. At first, I was a bit nervous but I stepped out of my comfort zone and here I am as Head Boy.
I will always jump into any activity I am asked to do. The thing that I am most looking forward to is the charity work because it makes me feel like the world is being helped.

Our Christmas Mission
Helping and serving our local families and young people who are in need is an important role and mission of our school. This provides children of our school the opportunity to see the impact and ability they have to create change at such a young age. Over the last four years the children and families of Hoddlesden St Paul’s CE Primary School and Uniplay have raised and contributed towards our Christmas Mission. Our school community has collected food and gifts over the years for in excess of 40 families. To know that there are children and families in need at any time of the year is hard to comprehend but especially hard at Christmas time.
We have had the pleasure of meeting some of the recipients of our Christmas Mission hampers over the years and have been overwhelmed by their gratitude and relief that they were able to make their childrens’ Christmas one to remember.
Families can be referred anonymously by schools in our cluster. If you can answer yes to any of the following questions, please get in touch.
- Do you know of a family who would benefit from food and presents being provided for their children over the Christmas period?
- Is the pressure of providing for your children over the holidays worrying you?
- Do you know a family who would benefit from an anonymous donation?
You can get in touch by:
- Returning the form below to our reception or through email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Speaking to staff in reception to make a referral
- Leaving the details on our online contact form: https://www.stpaulshoddlesden.org.uk/contact/
You can choose whether to make a named or anonymous request for a family.
We are lucky to have large donations over the festive period but this is not an endless supply and therefore requests will be processed on a first come first served basis. If you would like to make donations these will be warmly welcomed.
Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Values Committee Impact Statement 2018-19
This year in the School Council have organised many different fundraising events to help charities around the world.
Here are some of the events that we have taken part in this year:
- Rosemere Cake Sale
- Christmas Mission
- Children in Need
- Red Nose Day (Talent Show)
- Christian Aid
Here are some reasons why we help charities and people in need:
- It feels like we have made a difference in people’s lives when we fundraise, help people in need and support charities so that they can give the money to less fortunate people.
- We help people in need because they may be less fortunate than us
- It feels like we have made a difference in the world
- Everyone in the school enjoys taking part in fundraising events and helping people in need. We like to give and demonstrate our Christian Value of Service.
Without the support of our School Family, all of these events and the money that has been raised would not have possible.
We thank you for your continued support.
