Welcome and Vision

Welcome and Vision

Welcome to St Peter’s Church of England Primary School.

We at St Peter’s, are committed to providing a quality learning environment where individuality is recognised and celebrated within the context of a caring community in which Christian beliefs, practice and values are at the centre.

We work towards each child reaching their full potential, developing academic achievement, nurturing talents and encouraging spiritual growth.

 We are two-form entry school with a total of fourteen classes. We aspire to maintain and enhance our school as a vibrant learning community, where children thrive in a supportive atmosphere of high expectation. We continually work hard to create a family-oriented community school; wherever you walk in our school you will see the same high quality teaching and learning environments for the children. We spend our budget wisely, consistently providing the children with fantastic resources and attracting a large, outstanding team of teaching, classroom support and administrative staff.

For a school to be successful, it must be happy, so we nurture a strong sense of partnership between the school and the family, and this lies at the heart of the children’s happiness and success. St Peter’s Primary is a fun place to be. There is always something happening to enhance an already exciting curriculum. It is not unusual to see the staff and children dressed up period costume, such as World War II evacuees. These events bring the curriculum to life and make learning fun for everyone.

Success is something we readily celebrate, both academic and personal. We know this helps the children develop their self-confidence and self-esteem, which in turn encourages them to continue to do their very best.

Our collective view is that schools are about growth, and inspiration. We take great pride in our teachers’ ability to inspire exploration and we all delight in the successful discoveries of our children. The mutual efforts of teachers and families required to support young people today demand everyone’s fullest attention. We are proud of all our pupils; of their courtesy, self-responsibility, progress, attainment and positive attitudes to learning. We are proud of the way they display an interest in and respect for different people’s faiths, feelings and values – essential for their roles as 21st Century citizens in Modern Britain. We trust all our pupils are proud to be members of our school.

We hope this website is a useful introduction to the school.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call us.
