Our Faith at St Peter's Church of England School
At St. Peter's, our faith is central and used as a bedrock for the educational and spiritual journey that our children travel along. We explore our unique Christian ethos in a range of ways and we pride ourselves on being the best we can be. Our vision of, 'One Family, Aiming High, Learning Together with God' and the parable of The Lost Sheep links with our faith. Through the teachings of God, Jesus and the bible, our children are empathetic and show compassion. Through our love of our Christian faith, our children can reflect, meditate and draw on their knowledge that Christ loves them and will always be a guiding light.
Please explore the pages below to see how we live our school vision in our daily lives.

Below is our school prayer. Our school prayer is used daily as a part of our worship. We give thanks and reflect on the significant gift that God gave to us all. All prayer links with our school vision of, 'One Family, Aiming High, Learning Together with God,' as it states our commitment to take care of all living things on Earth and our neighbours.
Our School Prayer
When we put our hands together we think about God,
Everyday we will do our best to take care of each other and all the living things on earth,
Help us to respect each other and trust one another,
Show me how to be an even better person today than I was yesterday,
Thank you God for guiding us today, tomorrow and always
Our School Parable
This parable shows our school vision in action and is used as a part of our daily lives at St. Peter's.
Then Jesus told them this parable:
4 “Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Doesn’t he leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it? 5 And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders 6 and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.’
Our Linked Work With St. Peter's Church
At St. Peter's, we have a strong and intrinsically relationship with our school church. Through our close working we have established many links and we support one another's work within the community. We have supported one another in food collection for food banks, chaplaincy from Fr Simon for staff, support for the elderly during COVID-19, Christmas fairs, support for Rainbows and even happy couples getting married and using our school field! At St. Peter's, our school vision of, "One Family, Aiming High, Learning Together with God," is lived with our work with our school church.
Below is a sample of our individual sheep showing our school parable of 'The Lost Sheep'. This display was created as a whole school in which every child made their own sheep to show their uniqueness.
