We would like to share with you the thoughts of some of our parents

“I am so glad I chose St Peter’s for my little girl. As a 30th August baby, I was nervous about how she would settle but we had no problems and she is doing so well. It is such a nurturing place and feels like a village school in the middle of town! Even the head and deputy head knew her name within the first week, greeting us even now at the gates every day come rain or shine, and I feel so comfortable leaving her knowing she is so at home and cared for. She has loved her time there so far and is excited every day for what they have planned for her next. I have no doubt that this is the best start to her education that she could have had. Thank you St Peter’s!” (BH)

“St Peters is a fantastic school. It’s small and intimate and has some of the loveliest teachers. My daughter is thriving and I couldn’t recommend St Peters enough. My daughter loves going to St Peters every day.” (JH)

"St. Peters is a real gem! It’s a caring, nurturing environment with the loveliest of staff/teachers, who give so much attention to all the children."

"I was a nervous for my 4yr old bilingual daughter, starting school last year, but from the first days I realised that she is in the best possible hands! Year 1, now, she is thriving and simply adores her school!" (MM)

Please feel free to contact us

This is the largest ever survey of children in England, designed to find out what their concerns and aspirations about the future are. The Big Ask is now live at http://thebigask.uk/ A message from the Children's Commissioner: "The results from this survey will help me identify the barriers preventing children from reaching their potential, put forward solutions and set ambitious goals for the country to achieve. I need to reach as many children as possible through The Big Ask – the more I hear from, the stronger the results will be. Thank you in advance for helping me put children and young people at the heart of the country’s plans to rebuild for the future ."

About St Peter's Infants School

St Peter’s is a very friendly, supportive and nurturing school, where all members of the school community work as a team to make the time that the children spend with us positive and remembered fondly. We have high expectations for the children in our care, not only for academic success but in all aspects of their personal achievement. We firmly believe that children learn best and are most positive about their school experiences when they have high self-esteem, self worth and respect for others.

We aim to nurture the whole child and encourage them to work to the best of their ability in all aspects of school life - academically, socially and emotionally - thus equipping them to be valuable citizens of the future. St Peter’s aims to provide a broad, high quality education that helps the children develop into independent young people, able to apply their skills and knowledge to whatever lies ahead. We aim to develop in our children an enthusiasm for learning and positive attitudes that will enhance their self-esteem and that they will carry on with them into adulthood.

St. Peter’s has a strong philosophy of team work that is extended out to home. We seek to foster a strong home/school partnership that helps to build upon and consolidate the unique set of experiences that your child will bring to school.

We trust that you will find the information you require on our website and more.

St Peter’s is a GOOD School!

We are pleased to confirm that St Peter’s continues to be a GOOD school.
