St. Peter’s is a small, delightful, village primary school with GOOD Ofsted (January 2015) and SIAMs (October 2014) ratings. In an age when schools are increasing in size and becoming more business focussed, St Peter’s remains a very traditional primary school. Our Published Admission Number (PAN) is just 24, and consequently our classes are far smaller than is the norm. We have no mixed age group classes – each year group remains as a separate class. With a total of no more than 170 pupils, we are a small family, where everyone knows everyone else and we can focus on the individual needs of the pupil.

Our curriculum and values are underpinned by a strong Christian ethos. Our links with St. Peter & St. Paul’s church, village setting and quirky buildings enable us to provide a unique, nurturing environment. We take pride in our caring and supportive attitude to everyone at the school and aim to provide a warm, inclusive and stimulating atmosphere in which the talents of each individual can flourish.

Our parents are integral to the children’s progress. We encourage close and regular contact with them and they value this relationship. We have our own onsite nursery which assists smooth transitions through the early years and also provides wrap around care (7:30am to 6pm) to children of both the nursery and school. If your child doesn’t already come to St. Peter’s, we would be proud to show you round our wonderful school.

Ofsted 2015

“Pupils have positive attitudes to learning. They work hard and want to do their best. Relationships between pupils and adults are strong.”

“Teachers have high expectations of what pupils can achieve. Lessons engage pupils in their learning because they are lively and take account of their interests.”

SIAMS 2014

“The school has clearly defined Christian values  … (which) model characteristics of an aspirational school that has high expectations and standards”

“The values of the school inspire pupils to think about their own identity and help them to understand the perspectives and needs of others.”
