We are a caring and inclusive school that encourages and celebrates success – at every level. Our school is driven by an enthusiasm for learning and an ambition that every child can achieve success, exemplified by our motto:
"Together we hold the keys to success"
We aim to bring learning alive, making it exciting and stimulating, through providing meaningful, cross-curricular learning opportunities. We want to give our children a thirst for learning that continues with them throughout their future school experiences and adult lives, and we want to prepare them well for the ever-changing world in which they live.
We are a welcoming and supportive community that celebrates diversity, respects differences and values everyone for their individual qualities and needs. We are committed to developing each young person as an individual, meeting their individual needs and encouraging them to develop a positive image of themselves.
We want St Peter’s School pupils to feel happy and safe, so that they can be responsible members of their community, empowered with the skills and knowledge to enjoy an enriched and active life.
We have a positive behaviour policy that encourages "Bucket-filling" attitudes, and have four "Golden Bucket Rules."
We view education as a joint venture, involving everyone – children, parents, staff and the wider community, and encourage an ethos of open and honest communication between all stakeholders, with the belief that making mistakes is a natural part of learning, allowing areas for future development to be identified and actioned. This is why we operate an ‘Open Door’ policy. Parents are always welcome to discuss any issue with us so that we can find solutions to any problems.
