COVID-19 Lockdown

A reminder to parents: dropping off and collecting children from school

With lockdown measures coming into force from Thursday 5th November, it is now more important than ever for parents to follow social distancing rules when dropping off and collecting their children.

Social distancing is vitally important to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).

Please remember that when dropping off or collecting children, as parents you may choose whether or not to wear a mask whilst on site and should:

  • ensure your child(ren) wash their hands (20 seconds = a thorough wash) before leaving home;
  • keep as socially distanced as possible from other parents and staff;
  • ensure only one adult per family collects and drops off your child/children (to help reduce the number of people at the school gate;
  • wear a face covering if you need to enter the office;
  • leave the site as promptly as possible.

Thank you.


when we reduce our day-to-day contact with other people, we reduce the spread of the infection. That is why, from Thursday 5 November until Wednesday 2 December, you must:

  1. stay at home, except for specific purposes e.g. come to school;
  2. avoid meeting people you do not live with, except for specific purposes;
  3. close certain businesses and venues.

These new measures will reduce the growth rate of the virus, which will:

  • prevent the NHS from being overwhelmed;
  • ensure schools, colleges and universities can stay open;
  • ensure that as many people as possible can continue to work.

Thank you for helping to keep our St Peter’s family safe.

Remember - ‘Hands Face Space’

 Hands – wash your hands regularly and for 20 seconds.



 Face – wear a face covering in indoor settings where social distancing may be difficult, and where you will come into contact with people you do not normally meet.


  Space – stay 2 metres apart from people you do not live  with where possible, or 1 metre with extra precautions in place (such as wearing face coverings or increasing ventilation indoors).

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)

    Keeping warm!
    Dear parents Due to Covid-19 we are having to keep the school building well ventilated, which means doors are open all day. This is making the classrooms quite chilly. We would like to suggest that children wear a number of layers to school to help keep them warm. They will still need to be in uniform but we suggest for example to wear a vest or a roll neck top etc under their normal uniform, and we suggest girls wear warm tights rather than socks. Please can we also stress that ALL school jumpers MUST be name labelled. As children warm up at points of the day, they might remove their top layer and if the jumpers are un-named, it will be very tricky to re-unite your child with it. Thanks

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.
