Welcome to East Bridgford St. Peter’s
"St. Peter’s is an outstanding school, providing excellence at every level." So said Ofsted about us and whilst this provides us with much encouragement, it also drives us on to both sustain and develop from this position. To this end St. Peter’s provides a stimulating and exciting high challenge, high standard environment where your child can receive quality education/learning opportunities and care.
It is a school where we understand the importance of teaching the foundation skills all children need, but only so that we can then build on these, taking your child beyond normal expectation to see what he or she may be capable of and just what kind of person they can become. It is a journey of commitment and confidence, of participation and hard work, of openness and honesty, of creativity and learning, of success and (failure) support, of attainment and value, of reflection and renewal, of tears and laughter, of encouragement, love and growth, set within a vibrant and evolving inclusive culture of opportunity and achievement. It is a journey which can only be successfully travelled together, but whilst it is one that staff, parents, Church and community will be willing partners in, we must never lose sight of its primary goal, that above all else what happens at St. Peter’s is and must be ‘for children’.
Our best efforts are no more than your child deserves. We know that when you hand your child over to us and say please help him/her learn and grow, you are entrusting us with your most precious possession, with all your hopes and aspirations attached. This is a responsibility we take very seriously and one which we will work extremely hard with you to fulfil.
This is about your child and everyone’s child, their spirit and yours, your dreams and each others, coming together to form the living, breathing, vital and rigorous community which is the St. Peter’s school family. It is a family worth being a part of and, like all families, it is first and foremost, ‘for children’.
