Governors

On behalf of the Governing Body, I would like to offer you a warm welcome to St. Peter's Church of England Junior School. 
 
We aim to create an environment where our teachers want to teach and our children want to learn.
 
The school is very well led by Mrs. Stacey Kendall who is supported by a very strong team who are professional, well-motivated and committed to improvement, offer support and care whilst challenging each individual to achieve well beyond their expectations.
 
St. Peter’s is an exciting place to be and has grown from strength to strength recently. This has been reflected in the Ofsted report (November 2013) which states that:
 
‘‘Pupils’ behaviour has improved. They are courteous around school and in the dining hall. The excellent range of opportunities in the school grounds helps lunchtimes to be calm and orderly. Pupils enjoy being able to play games and also have quiet time in the carefully developed quiet areas.’’
 
‘‘The curriculum has been improved significantly. The outdoor environment has been
improved considerably and provides many opportunities for outdoor learning for all pupils.
Some of the additional funding for primary sport is being used to improve facilities.’’
 
The school has gained many national and local awards and recognition. 

St. Peter’s has a strong and committed Governing Body, which fulfils its role through meetings and committees. The Governors support the school by helping develop strategic planning and policy development and aims to be a “critical friend” to challenge and encourage accountability for overall performance.
I share with my fellow Governors a great deal of pride in the school’s many achievements and look forward to many exciting years for St. Peter’s. 

The Governors are also proud that St. Peter’s has a clearly defined Christian ethos and we shall endeavour to encourage Christian standards and understanding in all our pupils.
