Welcome to St. Peter and St. Paul School

As a church school we believe that children grow in mind, body and spirit. Within a nurturing Christian environment we aim for each child to experience true fulfilment and to engage fully in the great adventure that is primary education.

The staff of St. Peter and St. Paul’s are very proud of the quality of education we provide for all our children. The team of teachers, teaching assistants, parent helpers and governors all work together to ensure each individual reaches his/her potential.
Partnership with parents, the local community, the church and outside agencies are very important to our success.

Over the last few years we have achieved Healthy Schools Status, Active Mark, Film Mark, the Bronze Eco School Award and Financial Management Standards in Schools status. The school is constantly striving for improvement and welcomes contributions from our children through the school council, parents and PTFA. Currently we are involved in some exciting initiatives to further enhance learning and widen opportunities for our children.

If you would like to find out more about our school please come and visit and see us in action.

Headteacher

Anyone who returns their sheet with any funds raised will go in a class draw to go to Lincoln to purchase some of the books the children have asked for. Over the half term holidays the design the children have developed is being installed in the new library space ready to receive the new books we hope to be able to buy.

Snowy Weather

If it has snowed and you are not sure whether the school will be open or not, listen to Lincs FM (102.2) or Radio Lincolnshire (94.9, 104.7FM & 1368AM). If there is no mention of the school being closed on the radio assume that it is open.

When the weather is snowy, please also remember to send your child to school with the appropriate clothing so that they can enjoy the experience of playing in the snow. If they do not have a coat and a change of footwear e.g. wellies, they will not be allowed to play outside at break or lunchtime.

Christmas Jumpers

The money raised from our Christmas Jumper Day was £311.41. This was paid into the Text Santa charity. Thank you and well done!

We would appreciate your support in helping your child to learn to spell the words in their Spelling Log and to develop rules or ideas to remember them. Examples can be found in the Spelling Log. Please could you ensure your child’s Spelling Log is in school everyday.
