Welcome to St Peter's Catholic Primary School
Welcome to St Peter's Catholic Primary School. We are a Voluntary Aided (VA) school which means we are state-funded school and the Diocese of Arundel & Brighton contributes to building costs and has an influence in the running of the school. We hope that this website provides you with the information that you are looking for but if you have any further questions then please do not hesitate to contact us.
St Peter's is a small, friendly school with strong links to our local parish churches. Our school mission statement was written by pupils, parents, staff and governors and conveys a simple message - at St Peter's we are all equal and our aim is to have Christ at the centre of all that we do. In our mission to be able to "love and be loved" we work hard to develop the skills needed to be a messenger for God. We also work together to make sure that we make the right choices to do our very best and reach our full potential.
St Peter's is a happy school. We work hard to nurture a calm, friendly and caring family atmosphere. We endeavour to challenge our children and inspire them to reach their full potential. We teach a creative curriculum which is accessible for all. The children are able to access learning in a caring and supportive environment and know that we have high expectations of them all.
The school was rated "Good" by Ofsted in the summer of 2014. We have continued to grow and work closely in partnership with schools in our locality. We are always striving to improve and have a very dedicated staff. We have high expectations and seek to build on and improve our good results which, over the years, have largely been in line with, or above, National thresholds.
St Peter's enjoys themed weeks; some recent ones have included Adventures of the Brain Week, Bear Week, Pit Week (problem solving) and Creative Arts week. These weeks are very much enjoyed by everyone! We believe that the ability to apply skills learnt to problem solving or practical situations is crucial to the development of our children. We have responded to the challenges of the New Curriculum accordingly.
We operate an open door policy at St Peter's and are always happy to receive visitors. If you wish to come and visit then please get in touch.
Thank you for looking at our website!
