Our vision is create a learning environment that enables our children to ASPIRE, aiming high, and for our children to persevere with the challenges they face. We want to ensure 'life in all its fullness' for our learners. We are currently working on a St Peter's Passport which will highlight the various learning and enrichment opportunities we will provide for our children as they journey through the school.
These will include visits, visitors to the school, themed days and also through offering a wealth of after school clubs.
Below is a sample of some of the enrichment opportunities our children have experienced - many more can be seen within our passports!
Below is our Autumn Term Personal Development Newsletter:

Our St Peter's Passports track the enrichment experiences and opportunities for every cohort as they progress through the school - our dedication to ensuring 'life in all its fullness'
Our Year 6 leaver's show (Summer 2022) was Mary Poppins. The children worked tirelessly on their performance and created a show that the West End would be proud of.

The whole school enjoyed a street party to celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.
Our School Council helped to prepare the lunch and experienced what it was like to work in a kitchen.
