We believe it is our responsibility to ‘nurture a life-long love of learning and develop creative individuals who will play a positive role in society.’
At St.Peter’s we believe that learning continues throughout life and that we should develop the skills that enable life-long learning to take place. Together with a broad and balanced curriculum, we believe that we should secure high standards in English and maths, and that children should be inspired and enthused by the challenges we present to them, and feel secure and supported so that they can try new and thought-provoking experiences. We aspire that through our teaching we equip children with the skills, knowledge and understanding necessary to be able to make informed choices about the important things in their lives.
In learning English and Maths we follow the objectives of the National Curriculum carefully, and then give children many cross curricular opportunities to apply their learning. We use the Edison Connected Curriculum to ensure that we are teaching to the rest of the National Curriculum. We then evaluate each unit annually.
We are learning all the time, both inside the classroom and out and about.
If you would like to find out more about our curriculum please see your child's class page or speak to your child's teacher.
Please see the link below for our aims in RE. These aims are set by the Nottinghamshire Agreed Syllabus.

The school is pleased to announce that they have been awarded approval from the Association of Sport and Activity Providers (ASAP) and are permitted to display their Kitemark in recognition of this award.
ASAP work with organisations and individuals across the UK to help deliver high quality and safe sports instruction. They work with people delivering sports instruction to help them understand and devise risk management and safe practise tools.
Their approval means that coaches working in a setting are suitably qualified, understand risk and how to manage it. Organisations are also investing in Continuing Professional Development for staff and that their PE curriculum is age appropriate and caters for all ability levels.
The ASAP award for schools means that they are thinking about every aspect of PE delivery in their school.
