We are a Voluntary Aided school supported by the Diocese of Southwark and so, in addition to inspection by Ofsted, we also have a Church School’s inspection.
St Peter’s was judged as ‘Outstanding’ in our recent inspection completed in May 2018.
“Together, church and school are a beacon of Christian witness to the community which they serve.” SIAMS Report May 2018
The inspector noted the following:
“The distinctiveness and effectiveness of St Peter’s as a Church of England school are outstanding”
“The headteacher, governors and incumbent share and live out an ambitious Christian vision that extends beyond the walls of the school to the whole village”
“There is a highly developed understanding of spirituality that is shared across the school community so that, from the time they join the school, children learn to value life, ask increasingly deep questions about meaning and purpose and develop skills of quiet reflection.”
“Every opportunity is taken to promote pupils’ broad understanding of diversity so that, inspired by the school’s Christian character, they acquire positive attitudes of tolerance and respect towards others.”
As we are a Church of England School, our Christian faith lies at the heart of our ethos, creating and fostering a considerate community whilst providing a stimulating and creative learning environment where children come together to develop skills and values for life.
Our school has a strong Christian ethos which permeates throughout school life. Pupils are aware that: ‘everyone is your neighbour and there is always someone to help you’ and feel their voices are always heard. We strive for our pupils to develop morally, socially and personally as well as academically.
Driven by our Christian ethos, St Peter’s is actively involved in a wide range of charities. We are proud to sponsor the work of the Angel Kindergarten in Kibera through the Lunchbowl Network, as well as regularly supporting, amongst others, Macmillan, NSPCC, Comic Relief, Sport Relief and Children in Need.
