St.Peter's C.E. (VA) Junior School has been an established part of the community for over 150 years and has strong links with St. Peter's Church (situated opposite the school). The school has grown over the years from a 'village' school into a C of E Church School which serves a much wider community.
The school buildings comprise of four blocks, having expanded in line with the area growing from a village to a suburb.
As a Church School we aim to provide a Christian, caring, supportive, fun and successful learning environment, which is rooted in Christian values.
C.E. (VA) What does this mean?
This basically means that we are a church school. The C.E stands for 'Church of England,' The 'VA' stands for 'Voluntary Aided' which relates to the amount of control the school governors and Church have in running the school.
In practical terms it also means that we work very closely with our Church (St. Peter's) and Reverend Alicia.
At least twice a term the whole school attends Church. Children who want to, participate in a service, normally led by Reverend Alicia. Parents are invited back into school after this service. Reverend Alicia also visits school to take assemblies.
