Vision, Pillars and Ethos

Vision Statement

St. Peter was a close friend and follower of Jesus. Originally a fisherman, Peter’s name means “rock” and Jesus told Peter that he would be the rock upon which the church (referring to all people who followed Jesus) would be built. But Peter also made mistakes. He sometimes misunderstood Jesus and famously said he didn’t even know him three times after Jesus had been arrested. Yet, after Jesus’ resurrection, Peter was restored and appointed a leader in the early church.

Inspired by this story, it is our vision that St Peter’s Church of England Junior School will:

  • Be a place of safety and security for the families that we serve.
  • Meet the academic and spiritual needs of all, through a curriculum that inspires children to be naturally curious about God’s creation.
  • Be a place where all can flourish, regardless of background or ability.
  • Empower children to take responsibility and become courageous advocates for change.

St. Peter’s Pillars

Positivity – in faith, in each other, in ourselves

Perseverance – in aspiration and attitude

Passion - in learning, in Christ, in fellowship 

Presence – in prayer, in reflection, in behaviour

Aims

By the time a child leaves St. Peter’s they will have had the opportunity to:

  • Become a valued member of a community where they are loved and cared for
  • Experience a rich, varied and exciting curriculum
  • Be the best that they can be
  • Make the most of their God-given talents
  • Celebrate success and know what it feels like to be celebrated
  • Develop a curiosity for God’s creation
