about the school - welcome
Welcome to St. Peter's CE Primary School website. St. Peter's is a Church of England Primary School where quality of learning is our priority, enabling every pupil to achieve their full potential within a caring Christian community.
Great history, great present, great future
The school was founded by the church to provide education according to the principles and practices of the Church of England. Being a Church Foundation we are grant aided by the Department for Education and Employment, and maintained by the Local Authority.
about the school - our ethos
As a Church School we foster a particular ethos which rests on:
At St. Peter?s class sizes are small enough to ensure sufficient attention for each pupil, whilst being large enough to foster good social and team skills.
about the school - mission & values
At St Peter's, through our unique and distinct Christian character, we aim to facilitate the broadest academic, spiritual, social and emotional growth possible for each child who passes through our school. At the core of our approach lie the Gospel values, with which we aim to permeate school life. Through a rich and broad child-centred array of experiences, we strive to develop happy, healthy and independent learners, well rounded and suitably equipped for the life ahead of them.
St Peter's School Values
Initiated through our daily collective acts of worship, children are encouraged to develop and display a range of values that the Bible paints in stories of Jesus' life. We aim to provide a rich and diverse experience for our children with the over-riding aim to guide them to understand the value of their education, in turn, allowing them to be effective, independent learners, equipped with core life skills and experiences. We aim to give our children the very best start in their learning journey, inspiring them to be inquisitive life-long learners.

National Society Statutory Inspection of Anglican Schools Report
The school was inspected in September 2009.
The school supports the creation of curricular targets for the whole school. Curricular targets are created by subject leaders for literacy, numeracy, science and ICT. They are created by analysing data available. Data and generic whole school issues are formulated. More specific areas relevant to specific year groups are specified to enable for focused teaching to take place to meet a cohort?s particular needs.
Aspirational targets are set for Year 6 pupils and also for Year 2 pupils.
Target Tracker data is used to support teachers in the September of each academic year. This information provides an accurate overview of each particular class and the pupils within it.
This information is supplied by the School?s Assessment Leader.
What the papers say.
St. Peter's scores are enviably high in all categories, which we feel reflects the standards and dedication of the staff as well as the atmosphere created in the school as a place of learning.
