History of our School

The school was established originally in the nineteenth century. At various times there have been a boys’ school, girls’ school and infant school on site. These three schools have been amalgamated over time, so that now we are a through Primary school. The building reflects our long history, in that different sections of it are built in different styles and materials. The oldest part was built in 1856 as a Vicarage, and is actually a listed building.

Our Christian Ethos

The Christian faith acknowledges the value and uniqueness of every human being regardless of gender, age, ethnic origin or creed. It teaches the importance of love, respect, forgiveness and the need to work for peace and justice. We believe that true education must encourage the mental, physical and spiritual development of each pupil. Whilst the Christian faith is the majority faith with historical roots in Britain, we also acknowledge that we are a multi-faith society and honour those of others faith traditions and welcome the contribution that they bring to our school.

Our Values

We firmly believe that at every individual associated with St Peter’s C of E Primary Academy belongs to our whole school family; this family has the Christian Values of trust, mutual respect and honesty at its core and these form the foundations of everything we do. All who enter our school family have the right to be valued and treated with care and respect.

Our school is committed to quality education and the development of high self-esteem. It is a school where every child achieves more than is ever expected. We recognise and celebrate that each individual is unique and understand that everyone has an important contribution to make to the world in which we live.

At St Peter’s C of E Primary Academy we are dedicated to working in partnership with all pupils, parents, staff, governors and the wider community. We work together to provide an environment that encourages respect, tolerance and consideration of others, whilst helping everyone to build a positive self-image. We promote high expectations, maximum achievement and a lifelong love of learning.

It is our belief that education is most successful when home and school work together as partners.
