MISSION STATEMENT

St. Peter’s Catholic School Mission is that pupils, parents staff, governors and parish build together a learning community which develops love, concern for each other and forgiveness, by living out the Gospel.

This means our school will be a place which:

- encourages children to live as children

- welcomes, values and respects the innocence of childhood and the individual’s strengths and weaknesses

- encourages each to use his/her gifts and talents for self fulfilment and the good of all

- fosters knowledge, experience and understanding

- celebrates that we are each made in the image and likeness of God

- fosters prayer, trust in God and an understanding of His love through the Gospel of Jesus Christ, encouraging our respect for all His people
