At East Bridgford St Peter's CE Academy we strongly believe all children should feel safe, happy, inspired, supported and challenged to enjoy and achieve in and out of school.
Our ethos model for excellence: profound personal development at the heart of everything we do; ‘striving for life in all its fullness’ John10:10 – Our church school commitment; a culture of opportunity and ambition within a climate of participation; For children… for all. (see circle model below)
Our Beyond Expectation excellence model: identify and provide; enhance and enrich; offer challenge, feedback and intervention; meet and exceed the needs of all our pupils in an exciting, balanced and broad curriculum to enable children to achieve their full potential in their academic, creative, personal, physical, moral and spiritual development. (see triangle model below)
Within the context of Christian belief and practice, St Peter’s has developed a set of core (hand) values otherwise known as our ‘Take Care’ values which will continue to underpin all the work we do. In our firm opinion, they help to deepen your child’s (personal to them) positive principles and in doing so, help them consider the implications of their choices in relation to themselves, the communities from which they are part of and the wider world. As we join together in our school prayer: Oh Lord, bless our school, help us to ‘Take Care’ of ourselves, each other, the world and with our work. Amen. As we ask everyone to consider, ‘What does this mean to me?’ In turn, helping them to understand who they are but more importantly who they can become as they learn and grow. (see 'Hand Values' poster below)
We sincerely hope you will fully support our high expectations in all areas: excellent behaviour, punctuality, taking pride in our school and uniform, safeguarding, curriculum, home learning, enrichment activities, trips, enjoyment and achievement.
The school is always pleased to receive positive feedback. If you want a general chat about your child please contact the class teacher or me for an appointment on 01949 20226 or via the school email address firstname.lastname@example.org. Please don’t wait until an issue grows. Further information can be found here www.eastbridgfordstpeters.co.uk & our school twitter feed @StPetersEB
There is no doubt St Peter’s is a great place to be. There are happy and enthusiastic children, energetic and hardworking staff, a highly supportive community of parents and carers, church community and a committed Governing body.
‘Together in Achievement’
Regards & Take Care
