    Full opening of school 02.09.20
    Dear Parents/Carers Please find attached an important letter re the full opening of school from Wednesday 2 September 2020. It is crucial that you read this letter carefully so that you are fully informed re our plans. Within this letter, I have also mentioned the school risk assessment. This will be available to view on our website from tomorrow. I have also attached a provisional dates letter for the first half of the Autumn term. Because of Covid-19, these dates are of course provisional and are subject to change. Finally, we say goodbye to our wonderful year 6 pupils. Whilst this year has been an incredibly unusual one for year 6, they have still left a lasting impression- I wish them the very best at high school. Sadly, we also have to say goodbye to Mr Hickey. He has been a tremendous teacher and I know all of the St Peter's community will miss him greatly. I hope that you have a wonderful summer! Mr Wilson

    Important - Wider school opening update
    Dear Parents & Carers, We hope that you are enjoying your half term with your child/children. As of 3:47pm this afternoon, we have been made aware of the changing situation in the North West’s R number which, as of 2pm today, is above 1. Despite our hard work and efforts to ensure our school site is as safe as it could be during this time, we have been advised by Tameside’s Dr Jeanelle de Gruchy, Director of Population Health to delay our increase in numbers until at least the 22nd June. A copy of this letter from Dr de Gruchy will be available on our Twitter feed and on Tameside Council platforms. Acting on this advice, we have decided to pause our increase in numbers until this date, however, those children who have been attending school during lockdown can continue to do so as of Monday 08th June 2020. We want to remind you that if your child has not been in school during lockdown they are to remain learning at home until you are notified by school closer to the 22nd of June 2020. Thank you for your continued support during this ever-changing time and for your understanding of the complexity of this situation. Kind regards, Mr Wilson

Headteacher's Welcome

Welcome to St Peter’s Church of England Primary School website. We hope that you find our website interesting and informative. If you cannot find what you are looking for or need any further information about our wonderful school, please do not hesitate to contact us.

St. Peter's provides a caring, learning environment underpinned by Christian faith, belief and values where everybody is given the opportunity to grow and fulfil their true potential, just like the Mustard Seed in the Parable of the Mustard Seed, Matthew 13:32.  “Although it is the smallest of all seeds, yet it grows into the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and nest in its branches.”

At St. Peter’s, we are ‘Growing and Learning together’ so we can become strong and dependable, just like the Mustard Seed, Matthew 13:32.  Our Christian Values underpin everything that we do here at St Peter’s.  These are: To show love and care to others, To respect other people's beliefs or cultures, To try your best, To be kind and helpful, To be honest in our relationships, To behave with patience and respect and To celebrate our achievements and hard work.

We support the Church of England Vision for Education by offering a broad curriculum that enables young people to flourish and to live "life in all its fullness" (John 10:10).  Our engaging curriculum recognises the skills and talents of all learners. We have a dedicated set of staff who work together as a team to ensure that each and every child enjoys their time with us. We provide all learners with lifelong experiences including: Forest School sessions, Science Shows, Author visits and sessions with our Artist in Residence - Gillian Parish.

Outside of the classroom, pupils will go on at least two school trips per year to exciting places such as Cadbury World, Blackpool and the Imperial War Museum. We also offer an array of extra-curricular activities including: Dance, Multi -- Sports, Science, Music, Spanish, Choir and Trinity Club. 

We have strong community and charity links. In 2019, we achieved the Christian Aid Global Neighbours Bronze Award. We work closely with St.Peter's Church and a number of global and national charities. We also fundraise and take part in community action throughout the academic year. Please see our charity section and Twitter Feed for more information. 

We will do all we can to ensure that the years that your child spends at our school are as happy and fruitful as possible and that the whole family will benefit from being members of the community of St Peter’s Church of England Primary School.

Mr John Wilson

Headteacher
