At St Peter’s Academy, the Local Board Members and Senior Leadership Team want the whole school community to join with us in raising the standards of education for our children. We are raising the achievement and accelerating the progress of our pupils. The behaviour of our children is very good in the classroom and around the school and we work hard together to value good manners and respect for others.
The academy staff, the pupils and their parents and carers are all working hard to become an outstanding school and to set off in the direction of outstanding. This is not an easy journey but an exciting and rewarding one. We must all ensure we keep the creative and broad curriculum that gives our children such enjoyable educational experiences and good knowledge of the world and the arts.
The academy encompasses everything within its Christian ethos of caring for each other, sharing within our community and globally, respecting all and forgiveness leading to hope for all. This self-evaluation tells where we are and how we are getting to where we want to be.
We value the arts and have many art projects around the academy and music opportunities. We have a garden for growing vegetables and a wild area and have the Bronze Eco Schools award.
We teach French to every class. We are twinned with Ecole Christophe Plantain in St Avertin near Tours. We are also linked to Mukono School in Uganda so that our children can experience the experiences of other children around the world.
We offer many clubs including football, netball, recorders, guitars, dance and drama. Different clubs run during the year, organised by teachers, parents and outside specialists.
We have an enthusiastic parents committee, called FOSPA (Friends of St Peter’s Academy), which holds events to raise money for school.
