A very warm welcome to St Peter’s CE Primary and Nursery School website which has been designed to give you a taste of our school and its community.
As a church school we aim to serve our community by providing an education of the highest quality within a strong framework of Christian belief and values. We encourage an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith, and promote Christian values through the experiences we offer to all our children. We aim to prepare children not just for tomorrow but for every tomorrow throughout their life. The children’s first day at school is as important as their last day and we ensure that the foundation to their learning is set from the minute they walk through the school gates.
Well-being and achievement go hand in hand. A key priority for St Peter’s is for every child to be happy both in and out of the classroom. We strongly believe that if a child is not happy they will not thrive academically or socially. We work closely with parents to ensure that every individual’s needs are met and that every child is confident and has a positive self-esteem, as this impacts on both their learning outcomes and their relationships.
Our enthusiastic, professional and dedicated teaching team ensure that every child develops into an exceptional individual with a love for learning and the capacity to reach academic excellence. Lessons are planned to meet all individual’s needs and are designed to capture the children’s interest. They also provide opportunities to take calculated risks and to attempt challenges pupils never imagined they would. Our curriculum is broad and encapsulates skills that children require now as well as skills that will prepare them for the future.
To enhance the children’s education we deliver a wide range of extra-curricular activities as we encourage children to participate in learning beyond the school day in order to follow their interests and talents. We believe that this has a positive impact on their day to day academic progress.
When children leave St Peter’s, not only have they reached their academic potential but they are also individuals with a true sense of what it is to be a responsible citizen in society. They have resilience and courage which allows them to attempt things that are seemingly out of their reach and they have the perseverance to keep trying when things don’t go their way. They have integrity in abundance, are reliable, honest and trustworthy members of our community and above all they are exceptionally kind.
I am extremely proud to be the Headteacher of such an exciting, innovative and thriving school.
