Our mission is to provide a caring, healthy and enjoyable Christian environment in which all children feel nurtured and protected, and are encouraged to achieve their full potential in learning and in life.
"Whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me."
(Jesus, in Matthew chapter 18, verse 5)
At St. Peter's C of E Primary School, we believe that the primary phase of education is the most important in a child's learning journey; which is why we aim to nurture in all our children, a lifelong love of learning and enable our pupils to become confident, well-rounded, empathetic and thoughtful individuals.
strives to achieve these aims by ensuring that every one of our pupils thrives in a caring, friendly and happy environment; providing high quality teaching and learning experiences through an inspiring, broad, balanced and child-centred curriculum. We believe that all of our children will become equipped with the skills to achieve their very best and have the opportunity to reach their full potential.
We encourage our pupils to become self-motivated, aspirational learners who thrive on challenge and meet those challenges with positivity, perseverance and determination. We promote a ‘have-a-go’ approach in all areas of the curriculum and help the pupils to appreciate that the best successes in life, often have their foundations in failed attempts.
We actively encourage the children at St. Peter’s to take responsibility for their own learning; ask questions about the world in which they live and develop life-long learning skills.We encourage children to think for themselves, placing emphasis on problem solving, decision making and becoming independent learners.
We believe in the development of the whole child: educationally, socially, emotionally, physically, morally & spiritually.
St. Peter's 5 Golden Virtues underpin the life of the school.
‘Virtues’ is a word we don’t really use any more but refers to moral excellence, a definition that goes deeper than rules, values that are genuinely lived.
These virtues have been reviewed by the children during the past academic year and whilst the previous virtues have been replaced, appreciation of their importance remains.
