Growing together in mind, body and spirit
Our motto captures our vision to continually improve ourselves utilising the power of collaboration in our community.
Some underlying aims and principles
We want our community to enjoy the St Peter’s learning experience through our unique curriculum. Everyone will reach their potential, staying active, fit and healthy. We want to achieve academic, sporting, musical and spiritual excellence.
Our Christian values permeate throughout our community, encouraging everyone to live life in all its fullness (John 10v10) as we demonstrate love (The Lost Son), compassion (The Good Samaritan), thankfulness (The Ten Lepers) and mutual respect for one another, enabling our pupils to become fantastic citizens for the future. At the moment we have passionate pupils who are aiming to change our school and community into a more sustainable eco-environment.
excellence – /n/ surpassing ordinary standards.
We are looking to develop a range of outstanding talents, outcomes and qualities in our community. But does this mean we will always be looking for success? Excellence can also be captured in effort. We will praise the attitude and process, not just the outcome, encouraging a passion for lifelong learning.
Aristotle says: “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.”
Aims and principles
We want our community to enjoy the St Peter’s learning experience through our unique curriculum. We believe that our curriculum should have high-quality outcomes. It should be embedded in our locality, be child centred and develop a lifelong love of reading. Most of all, we want it to be purposeful, playful and fun!
Everyone will reach their potential, staying active, fit and healthy. We believe that all members of our community can reach their potential, and will achieve it in different ways.
We want to achieve academic, sporting, musical and spiritual excellence. We believe that excellence can be achieved through perseverance and effort rather than through an innate gift.
