St Peter’s is a one form entry, friendly, family orientated school and we are proud of how we work in partnership with parents/carers and the wider community. From what was originally an infant school, built in 1906, we have grown into an all-through primary and nursery school for children aged 3-11. Our admission numbers are 218 pupil spaces in the school as we became a full primary school in 2016. We also offer a choice of 15 or 30 hours a week in our nursery.
At St Peter’s we seek to nurture and develop our pupils into high achieving, confident and articulate young people whose primary education equips them to go confidently in to secondary education. We are ambitious for all our children, both academically and socially, and our aim as a school, just like as a parent, is based around what we believe is best for the children. We strive to provide the best quality that we can find or afford; the best teachers, the best facilities, the best visits and visitors and in essence the best education, so that our children love school and love learning.
Everyone here is committed to providing stimulating high quality learning opportunities both within and outside the classroom. We teach our children to be curious, to ask questions, and to be thinkers. We help them to understand that we all make mistakes and that we can learn from them. By creating an environment in which we can develop their confidence and self-belief, we hope to prepare them to take on challenge, and become confident, well rounded young people who see life as being a glass that is half full, not half empty.
At St Peter’s we believe that we should treat other people the way we wanted to be treated. We encourage the children here to grow up to be nice people: to be kind and generous; funny and thoughtful; and to be honest and truthful. Good behaviour and mutual respect is a whole school expectation. Through sport and learning activities we encourage our pupils to be team players and to bring out the best in each other by working together. As part of our curriculum and in our charitable events, we aim to encourage them to do good in the world, to think beyond just what is best for themselves, but what will make the world, in even a small way, a better place.
We hope our website will give you some insight into our happy school where our children and staff have a deep enthusiasm and love for learning.
