At St Peter's, we pride ourselves on creating a nurturing environment where children learn about the world around them, humanity and develop a growing sense of self and their place in society.
We understand that children come from diverse family structures, cultures and backgrounds and we celebrate and promote this rich backdrop.
We have the 12 Christian values as our bedrock but do not make any distinction between people of Christian faith, other faiths and no faith. We are all one family.
Within our school, we have twelve Christian values and four school values. These values are used throughout our day to guide and develop our children. We have both Christian values and school values so that we represent all members of our schooling community.
Our Christian values
When visiting St. Peter's, you will see a beautiful painting of St. Peter. Please take time to view this painting as around the image are our school values. Not only this, when you look closely at the painting, you will notice subtle but significant objects of meaning.
Below are our Christian values:
Koinonia, thankfulness, truthfulness, compassion, service, hope, forgiveness, trust, wisdom, justice, peace and love.
We do not focus on all our Christian values in the same year, we have a rolling three year programme in which we select six values that will tie in with our focus for the year.
Our School Values
Within St. Peter's, we use values that underpin our philosophy of one family, aiming high, learning together with God. The values below are referenced year on year.
Our school values are:
perseverance, respect, enthusiasm and spirituality
Some of our school values cross over. We have chosen to do this so that we can always reference and use key values during our school day.
