The biblical roots bind the school community, driving ambitious leaders at every level to enable transformational outcomes for every pupil to flourish. Governors are passionate about ensuring everyone aims high and as a result, re highly effective.
  • The inspirational headteacher skillfully shepherds a community-centred approach that ensures no one is left behind. Pupils and adults watch over each other in love, which is unprompted and strikingly normal at St Peter’s. Pupils achieve highly as everyone is resolute to aim high. A secure understanding of spirituality is developing within the curriculum.
  • St Peter’s exceptional provision for every pupil, particularly the most vulnerable, transforms lives for the better. Pupil behaviour is exemplary.
  • Sustained support for the mental health and wellbeing of pupils and adults ensures that all are enabled to aim high and flourish. The vision unites the community within the context of the decidedly inclusive, welcoming, and loving school.
  • Excellent collective worship is the heartbeat of St Peter’s. Innovative and inspirational worship enables everyone to have a deep and lasting understanding of the vision. Prayer and reflection are integral to the rich worship life. A strong and mutually beneficial relationship has been reignited between the school and church communities.
  • Effective religious education (RE) leadership and good teaching ensure that pupils flourish in RE. Whilst good, the RE curriculum does not fully reflect the school’s vision and is not sufficiently ambitious or dynamic enough to be judged Excellent.

Areas to Develop


  • Further develop an ambitious, creative and dynamic RE curriculum, so that it fully expresses the school’s Christian vision.
  • Embed a secure and consistent understanding of and approach to spirituality, so that the spiritual growth of all pupils and adults is enhanced.
