On behalf of the staff, governors and the diocese, I warmly welcome you to our school, St Peter’s CofE Primary School, where I have the great honour of being the headteacher.
There is a special feel to St Peter’s that is noticeable from the moment you step through the gates. Children sit at the heart of all we do; we strive every day to make a difference to each and every member of the school’s community, giving the children the tools they will need to be successful in life. St Peter’s is also a place of high expectation and achievement, where we aim to provide all our pupils with a friendly, supportive and vibrant learning environment to ensure they reach their full potential.
We are a one form entry school organised into nine year groups from a two year old nursery to our eleven year olds in Year Six. We have outstanding facilities within our large school grounds, including an all-weather sports pitch, an adventure playground, outdoor gym, extensive grassed areas and a wide range of extra-curricular activities.
Our caring and nurturing framework, supported by close links with the Church, develops, encourages and celebrates each child. Our 'family ethos' ensures everyone in our community is valued and respected as an individual and as an equal.
We believe enjoyment should be valued as highly as achievement. Our school is a purposeful place underpinned by shared Christian values and is a fun place to be. Pupils are surrounded by a rich engaging curriculum which installs a life-long love of learning. High quality teaching and the promotion of responsible behaviour prepares children for the future challenges they will face. Through the development of curiosity and independence in an inclusive setting, our children are supported in achieving their personal best, whilst learning to love and respect one another.
We value highly the partnership between home and school and encourage all parents to take an active part in the education of their children. The school cannot work in isolation. The partnership between school staff, parents, governors and other stakeholders is an essential one. Together we can set challenges and our partners can help us ask ‘How can we do this even better?'
I hope that you find this information useful but it can only give you a glimpse of our work. I am always happy to meet and speak with parents and carers and guarantee that a warm welcome will always await you!
