Mission Statement

Mission Statement

St Peter’s is a loving, Catholic Community, within which each person is helped to achieve full potential.

 

Aims

To create a Christian ethos of love, allowing each member of our school community to grow in their personal relationship with God and with each other.

 

  • The school provides a secure and caring community in which the Gospel Spirit of love, care and mutual respect permeates every aspect of school life
  • Religious Education lessons and Collective Worship, contribute to the Spiritual development of pupils
  • Through the “Come and See” programme, the children learn about the teachings, belief, values and way of life of Catholic Christianity and other faiths
  • Collective Worship and prayer are provided for every child daily in a variety of ways
  • A variety of systems are in place (school/class rules, award assemblies, certificates) to acknowledge and reward positive behaviour and help children distinguish right from wrong and develop a personal sense of morality
  • The school supports the  Parish in its preparation for Eucharist and Reconciliation and Confirmation

 

To establish a safe school community that encourages the development of Christian values, growth and a love of learning.

  • The curriculum will be rich, broad and balanced and provide an inclusive education based on high expectations for all
  • The learning will be an enjoyable and challenging experience where learning is matched to the needs of the learners
  • The curriculum will be delivered within a safe and supportive atmosphere where every child will be helped to succeed whatever their background or ability
  • The children will learn in many different ways – out of class, through play, in groups, through art, music and sport
  • We will make learning vivid and real so that children develop understanding through enquiry, creativity, e-learning and group problem solving
  • We will develop a strong partnership with parents by giving them useful information enabling them to support their children with their learning
  • Assessment will help us to set targets that reflect individual pupil skills, abilities and potential.  Children will be encouraged to think carefully about their own progress so they can be involved in the target setting process.

 

To nurture strong relationships built on respect and consideration between school, parents, Parish and the wider community encouraging faith to be a significant part in every person’s life.

  • A very good partnership exists between home, school and parents
  • The Parish Priest and Deacon visit the school to support the religious life and are involved in Come and See where appropriate
  • Masses are celebrated throughout the year, some as classes, some as a Key Stage and some whole school
  • Parishioners join the school community to celebrate Masses, assemblies and other celebrations and take part in a school life in a variety of ways
  • Pupils are given the opportunity to make links with the local and wider community, e.g. distribution of harvest gifts, fundraising for Nugent Care, CAFOD, St. Rocco’s Hospice
