God Save The King
As we head towards the big weekend, the children have being celebrating the King’s Coronation by dressing in their royal costumes and taking part in a special day of Coronation themed activities. There has been lots of learning around the Coronation, our country’s traditions, and symbols of our country as well as a special performance of “New King” written by Banji Alexander and a coronation anthem performed by St Peter’s School Choir.
Caterham, Oxted and Godstone Lions Club supporting St Peter’s
We were really lucky today to have a visit from the Caterham, Oxted & Godstone Lions Club president, Chris Frith and Rita Reissland who have very kindly donated logo’d hi-vis jackets for all the children and staff at St Peter’s School. This is a fantastic gift—we will be able to proudly show off our school when we are wearing them out and about and, at the same time, they will be helping to keep us all safe. Thank you so much to the Lions for this fantastic donation.

We are delighted with the results of our recent Ofsted inspection. OUTSTANDING for Behaviour and Attitudes; OUTSTANDING for Personal Development; OUTSTANDING for Leadership – and Good overall. You can read the Ofsted report here.
“It’s fantastic news for the School. Staff across the board, work really hard to ensure that all of our pupils benefit from high quality teaching, learning and assessment, in a supportive and safe place and one which provides them with the skills they need to succeed and progress. This inspection has been a long time coming and we are so incredibly proud and delighted to see the strengths of our school acknowledged by Ofsted” – Lenia Greenaway

A Prayer for Ukraine
A Message to the Future
The reinstatement works of the older part of the school are in full swing with new flooring being installed to replace that which was damaged by the flooding. We decided it would be a lovely idea for the children to send a message to future generations by creating a time capsule which we will hide under the new flooring in the classroom. The children have written messages and thought of objects to put into the capsule. Today, we held a special school gathering to safely hide it for future generations to discover one day.
“New is the year, new are the hopes, new is the resolution, new are the spirits”
Happy New Year from all at St Peter’s School!
St Peter’s School Staff & Governors would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy New Year! God bless.
Run, Run Rudolph!
We all got very wet and muddy but we had a great time on our Reindeer Run today! Well done everyone for taking part and raising money for the school. Special thanks to Friends for organising the event and for managing to secure a visit from a very special visitor too!
The Big, Red Fire Engine!
Busy Bees enjoyed a wonderful interactive morning of learning today. We welcomed members of the Fire Brigade into school and they spoke to us about the importance of fire safety. We learned about what to do in the event of a fire, the work that fire fighters do and we asked some very interesting questions. We even got to see the fire engine, the hoses and the special equipment they use!
Thank you to the team from Godstone Fire Station for their informative and exciting visit.

Thank you to everyone who was able to join us for our Harvest Celebration Service this morning. We were so happy to once again be able to come together and celebrate in St Peter’s Church as a whole community. The children, as always, made us so proud – well done all of you.

FITNESS FANATIC, AN EXTREME SPORTSMAN OR … JUST MAD?!!
Mark Gatty-Saunt (Leo and Eloise’s daddy) took on another crazy challenge and is fundraising for our school. On Wednesday this week, Mark climbed the equivalent height of Mont Blanc (4,808 m/15,777 ft) on Zig Zag Road, Box Hill, Surrey Hills (AONB), UK. To put this challenge into perspective, there wasn’t a single mountain stage in the 2021 Tour de France that had a total elevation close to (or above) this total climbing height. Box Hill is one of the most iconic cycle climbs in Britain and has been referred to as “The Alpe d’Huez of the South-East”. What an absolutely amazing thing to do for our school. Thank you so much Mark. We really hope your legs after feeling okay after this!
Mark has a crowdfunding page if you would like to show him you support:
