About St Peter's
Our school is set in fabulous and spacious grounds in South Bristol. We have three playgrounds and two areas that are specially set up for our Early Years Children. We have allotments, climbing and adventure equipment, an arboretum, a secret garden, large playing fields and our very own cycle track. With two buildings we also have plenty of space inside. We have two halls, a fully fitted cookery room with four cooking station, a music room and a relaxing grassed courtyard. Children in the Foundation Stage and KS1 (Infants) are in one building and children in KS2 (Juniors) are in another building. Each building is fully accessible and adapted to meet the needs of the children in that age range. In 2017 we had our ‘Eco Pod’ built which is a new, fun and exciting space for children to learn in – it even has a slide inside!
We are confident that the years that your child spends at St.Peter’s CE VC Primary School will be happy, rewarding and memorable, providing a firm foundation for their future. With a great team of staff and a wonderful community, we know that this is a successful school that provides ‘A World of Opportunities’ for each of our children.
We have our own Nursery (Ducklings) and children attend our Nursery for 2 and 1/2 days a week. Part of the Nursery provision also includes free access to Forest School.
We set an exceptionally high standard for academic achievements and children at our school make good progress in all areas of the curriculum. Current Standards in English and Maths are available in Our Key Documents.
This year (2015) 95% of our children gained L4 + in reading and writing and 100% of our children gained L4+ in maths. 93% of our children gained L4+ in the GaPS test with 72% of those gaining a L5 or better.
Teaching is never less than good and a high proportion is outstanding. Teachers use their very good subject knowledge to motivate and inspire pupils. Good use of different media, such as information and communication technology, adds greatly to pupils’ enjoyment of learning, which is palpable. OFSTED Report, December 2012
St Peter’s is outstanding because high quality spiritual experiences underpinned by strong Christian values make an exceptional contribution to the children’s learning and personal development.
A set of core values rooted in Christian teaching have been identified, with friendship at its heart, and are integral to the whole life of the school. These values have a significant impact on children’s high academic achievement, personal development and well-being.
Children are very happy in school and show outstanding attitudes to learning. SIAS Report March, 2016
