Our Values

We are proud to be a Church of England school and at the heart of our school are our values. Christian values are at the foundation of how we shape the attitudes of our students to learning and life in the wider community. As well as our Christian Values, we also have personal characteristics that we promote and that underpin everything we do at St Peter's Church of England Primary School.

At St Peter's Church of England School, we are:







Throughout the school day, staff will hand out 'Peter Points' when they notice a pupil demonstrating one of our values. Pupils can collect and spend their Peter Points on rewards. 


Throughout Lent, our children will do lots of work surrounding what lent is and why we are reflecting and preparing before Easter Sunday. In the run up to Easter Sunday, each class will also take part in many activities linked to Easter Sunday as well as a variety of collective worships focused on this. As we are not in school this year to do these activities, please find below some activities that can be done at home which are focused around Easter.
