A Church of England Primary School in a small Essex Market town near Colchester. “Aspire – Care – Enjoy” are our keys to success.
As members of the St Peter’s School community we all aim to do our very best at all times. We encourage our children to be independent, whilst giving them a secure grounding in the key skills, to ensure they can make the most of the opportunities life has to offer.
We set high standards for attainment, rigorously tracking the progress of each child to ensure that they are supported and challenged. As a result every child will achieve and we will celebrate their achievements. All adults ensure that our vision is delivered through quality teaching and a positive learning environment.
Together we respect the lives and wishes of others at all times. Our Christian and British values underpin our vision. As a Church school we are supported by the local community in the nurturing and teaching of our values. Through our partnership with Buhumba Primary school in Uganda our children have a wider understanding of the key international themes of global citizenship through shared learning.
We communicate effectively with parents as a partnership ensuring a shared understanding of each child’s needs and a consistent approach to the support that they receive.
We enjoy a cross curricular approach using the local environment, first hand experiences and creative opportunities. Our holistic whole child approach starting from the child’s understanding, enables children to develop a joy and love of learning. Our learning journey approach encourages children to take responsibility for their learning and develop resilience. Our code of conduct is underpinned by the 3 main principles of respect, learning and safety, providing an environment where we can all learn together.
