Vision & Values
“Unlocking the gates to a lifelong love of learning and faithfulness”
“Start children off in the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it” Proverbs 22:6
At St Peter’s C of E Primary School, the growth and development of children and adults is central to everything we do. As a church school, we aim to serve and take care of our community by providing an education which inspires every child to be the best they can be. This is within a framework which is rooted in distinctive Christian beliefs and values whilst embracing diversity, respecting other faiths and worshipping together. We encourage an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith and promote Christian values through the experiences we offer to all our school community.
All of St Peter’s school community work together and take care to provide an inspiring, inclusive and creative learning experience for all of our children. A welcoming and safe environment encourages all to be happy, hopeful and enthusiastic learners. This enables them to take risks in their learning to develop a lifelong love of learning and faithfulness and experience life in all its fullness. We aim to nurture the whole child and encourage them to be unique individuals preparing them for their life and go beyond expectations.
We value our partnership with parents, carers, governors, the Church and the wider community. We encourage everyone to take an active role in all aspects of school life, promoting a sense of pride and living together well. Together we develop a community of love and dignity in which everyone feels valued, cared for and supported, celebrating the uniqueness of each individual because they are made in the image of God.
We encourage all our school community to have hopes, aspirations and be independent learners who thrive on challenge: meeting those challenges with positivity, courage and perseverance. We inspire to have a lively and enquiring mind through a resilient approach in an enriched curriculum and help all our pupils to appreciate that the best successes in life often have the foundations of failed attempts.
Underpinned with the importance of emotional well-being, we believe in taking care of the development of the whole child: educationally, culturally, socially, emotionally, physically, morally and spiritually.
We promote the highest standards of achievement by all pupils regardless of ability, religion, ethnic origin or gender.
Our core purpose is for all our children to achieve profound personal development by taking care of themselves, others, the world and in their work. We aim for them to treasure their educational and spiritual journey gathering wisdom, knowledge and skills to experience life in all its fullness. As a community, we are unlocking the gates to a lifelong love of learning which will always remain open.
