We are well known
for our lively and caring atmosphere and we pride ourselves on the high
level of education we provide whilst providing a personal and individual
environment where children have the ability to develop and thrive.
All our staff understand how young children learn and ensure that both the
learning environment and the content of their lessons are stimulating,
creative, fun and educational. We truly believe that every child
matters, it is important that all our children are happy and healthy, which
are fundamental before successful learning can take place.
Our school has well developed links with the community and external
agencies. These links help to ensure that we are not just addressing
the children’s academic needs but also their personal, social and emotional
We have excellent relationships with our parents and work together to
improve our provision for the children in our care. We are continually
seeking to improve the partnership which must exist between school and home
for our children to succeed.
We strongly believe that our school is a busy, well organised and successful
school in which you can be confident your child will thrive.
Our extensive Air Raid Shelters
offer a truly historic insight into Portslade life in the war. We offer an
exciting "Child in the War" experience to local Junior schools and open our
Air Raid Shelters to the public at our Summer Fayre in June each year.

St. Peter's was built
in 1906 and was originally a primary school for 170 children. There
are air raid shelters underneath our canteen and our log books from the
Second World War tell us how children spent time there on a daily basis
during the air raid warnings. We celebrated our 100th birthday here at
St. Peter's in 2006 and we are looking forward to a successful future
providing excellent primary education.
