A Vision for Our School

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

We ensure each child reaches their full potential, through developing academic achievement, providing emotional support, nurturing talents and encouraging spiritual growth.

We aspire to maintain our school as a vibrant learning community, where children thrive in a supportive atmosphere of high expectations. We continually and successfully strive 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. Our budget is spent wisely and consistently provides the children with fantastic resources and attracts a large, outstanding team of teachers, classroom support and administrative staff.

A successful school is a happy school, 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. For example, 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 and memorable 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. Our pupils are proud to be members of our school.
