‘I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full’ John 10v10
Welcome to St Peter’s School.
Here at St. Peter’s, with Christ at our centre, we are about learning.
Learning through our Faith.
We are extremely proud of all our children. We recognise each child as a unique gift from God. Our children are all at different points in their faith journey; yet they all try to live the Gospel in their behaviour and in their care of one another, by what they say and what they do. As a school, we are able to express our faith openly and ask some BIG, searching questions.
Learning through our Ethos
We have chosen the words of Bishop Oscar Romero ‘Aspire not to have more but to be more’. In a world where things can sometimes feel commercialised and trivial, we ask our children to look through the words of the Gospel and strive to become the best person they can possibly be. Romero’s words live as our Mission Statement, and they are given breath through our children and staff in our behaviour and learning policies.
Learning through our Environment and Curriculum
Children feel happy and safe at St. Peter’s. We are blessed with wonderful buildings and extensive grounds; every space is utilised for learning. Teachers recognise each child’s ability and talents and provide each of them with support and challenge. Children are encouraged to be active participants in their learning and are given opportunities to debate, speculate, experiment, enquire, present and review.
Our standards are consistently high in English and Mathematics. However we also pride ourselves with developing well rounded, thoughtful and spiritual individuals and talented performers in music, drama and sport.
Learning through our family
Our strength as a school is our unity as community; children, parents, staff and governors working together in partnership. We all work hard to ensure ‘that our children may have life and have it to the full.’
