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.

News and Reminders
Just a reminder that the PFTA Christmas Fair will be held this Friday, 4th December after school. Thank you for all the wonderful donations that have been sent in so far. Please keep them coming in. We need raffle prizes, chocolate, teddies and bottles/]ars of anything.
We are also asking for donations for our cake stall which will need to be brought in to school on the Friday morning. All children that make cakes or biscuits for the stall will be entered into a competition. Looking forward to seeing you all therei
If your child would like to send Christmas cards to friends at Burgh School the free post service has begun. Remind your child to write the name and class on the envelope. We can only make deliveries to children and adults in school.
On Wednesday 9th December the children who have hot school meals will be having their Christmas lunch. In order to make the lunchtime special for all the children we are asking if Parents could please make the packed lunches festive. Perhaps you could decorate the lunchbox with Christmas wrapping. Sandwiches could be cut into Christmas shapes, include a mince pie or yule log . You may wish to do the same on the Christmas Party days too, so instead of the meals listed on the menu it will be party food provided for those on school meals. No additional food is required if your child has school meals.
- Tuesday 15th December – Reception, Year 1 and Year 2
- Wednesday 16th December – Year 3, Year 4, Year 5 & Year 6
The children may come in suitable party clothes for the day but must have appropriate shoes and coats for going outside to play.
Don’t forget that Friday 11th December is our “Wear a Christmas Jumper Day” in school bringing £1 for the charity Save the Children.
Remember our term ends with the School Carol Service on Thursday 17th December at 2pm in Church.
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.
Young Journalists at Siren FM 24 November
I hope the YJA team had fun today with us at Siren FM. They all got to grips with the technical aspect of producing a radio show pretty quickly and also realised how much planning has to go into making even a short programme!
The shows will be scheduled this week for broadcast but I will let you know in plenty of time when that will be (you'll be able to listen online too).
A big thank you to everyone who supported our efforts for Children in Need. We raised a magnificent £360! Find out more.
We have a member of staff with a severe allergy. Please do not send your child with any strawberries, strawberry products or flavourings in snacks or lunchboxes.
You can find more news stories and view our events Calendar on our News and Events page.

The Bookfair will be in the school hall from Wednesday 2nd December until Monday 7th December straight after school!
