Welcome to Our School

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

Our school community is a strong vibrant one where children are well supported by a dedicated, strong team of teachers, teaching assistants, parents, our local Parish and by the surrounding community.

Children are very happy in our school and enjoy learning. We have a strong focus on values and as such treat everyone in our school community, and beyond, with kindness and respect. This reflects our school motto ‘It’s nice to be nice’.  Children learn in a positive climate that fosters self-esteem, where all children are valued and where learning is fun, with expectations high.
