St. Peter’s Primary School

Mission Statement

The teaching and learning experience at St. Peter’s inspires all of our children to question, to reflect and to understand in a happy, secure and inclusive environment.
We aim to provide an education that will maximise each child’s potential and promote
his / her personal development.
We will achieve this in partnership with the parents and the local and wider community.
St. Peter’s Primary School is committed to the promotion of Catholic values as guiding principles for life and learning.

For our children, we aim to:

  • Fully develop their academic potential
  • Promote high achievement through recognising and developing their physical, creative, social, cultural and spiritual skills
  • Enable them to become independent thinkers, problem solvers and decision makers
  • Develop self-confidence and self esteem
  • Equip them with knowledge and skills to use in the world in which they live and work
  • Encourage a healthy lifestyle
  • Develop a caring, compassionate and tolerant attitude compatible with our Catholic ethos
  • Encourage respect for others, irrespective of race, colour, religion, gender or ability
