Ethos and Values

We want to let our light shine!

SS. Peter & Paul Catholic Primary School provides a welcoming, safe, secure and caring environment for its children and staff, both teaching and non-teaching. Based upon Modern British Values and our Catholic faith, we aim to develop each and every child to their fullest possible potential.

The foundation of our aims, our teaching and learning are the words of Christ. We keep this in mind as we acknowledge the gap between our vision and reality and do our very best to bring these closer together.

We are OUTSTANDING: Our Section 48 Inspection which took place on 21st March 2018 confirms this:

MONITORING REPORT 123552 2018

 “Your light must shine before people, so that they will see the good things you do and praise your Father in heaven.” (Matt.5:16)

Our Catholic Vision

To provide a broad and balanced curriculum catering for each child’s spiritual, intellectual, physical and moral development.

To value all children and help them develop attitudes of love and tolerance, forgiveness and respect.

To offer equality of opportunity to all. To work closely with parents, our parish and local community.

To make prayer, worship and liturgy real educational experiences, and to contribute successfully to the development of the faith of each individual in the school community.

To create an interaction between home, parish and school which provides preparation for the pupil’s entry into the wider community. To achieve this aim the school will:

  1. ensure that parents feel welcome in the school and that they have a very real and valued part to play in their child’s education.
  2. positively encourage good relationships with the Parish and participation in school/parish celebrations.
  3. provide a Christian environment in which the children have the opportunity to develop faith in God and a good, strong relationship with Jesus Christ and love of their neighbour.

To create a community of love, care and concern, demonstrated in the daily lives of the children, staff, parents and governors.

To help the children to be strong and tolerant in appreciating other Christians and differing faiths.

Mission Statement

Jesus Christ said, “Your light must shine before people, so that they will see the good things you do and praise your Father in heaven.” (Matt.5:16)

We believe that Christ is the source of our authority and the reason for the distinctive nature of our Catholic school. Our school aims are based on our belief that each child is made in the image and likeness of God.   In educating our children, we are aware not only of our life here on earth but also of our eternal destiny.

Peter & Paul Catholic Primary School provides a welcoming, safe, secure and Christian environment for its children and staff, both teaching and non-teaching. Based upon Christian principles, and our Catholic faith, we aim to develop each and every child to their fullest possible potential.

The foundation of our aims, our teaching and learning are the words of Christ.  We keep this in mind as we acknowledge the gap between our vision and reality and endeavour to bring these closer together.

Bishop Mark’s Visit

In September 2019 we had a visit from Bishop Mark, he lead an assembly where the children had the chance to ask him many wonderful questions about his job.  The Bishop especially commented about how beautifully the children sang.  He enjoyed a hot drink and cakes with the staff afterwards and thanked everyone for their hard work and the welcome he received.

This was a brilliant opportunity for the children.
