East Bridgford St Peter's Church of England Academy

Church School

Christian Distinctiveness

In line with the Church of England's role as the established Church, our vision is for the common good of the whole community.

Educating for wisdom, knowledge and skills: enabling discipline, confidence and delight in seeking wisdom and knowledge, and developing talents in all areas of life.

Educating for hope and aspiration: enabling healing, repair and renewal, coping wisely when things go wrong, opening horizons and guiding people into ways of fulfilling them.

Educating for community and living well together: a core focus on relationships, participation in communities and the qualities of character that enable people to flourish together.

Educating for dignity and respect: the basic principle of respect for the value and preciousness of each person, treating each person as a unique individual of inherent worth.

 

 

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.

 

Our behaviour policy is very much based on Christian values of forgiveness and having the oportunity to put things right. In essence, learning from our mistakes. Ultimately, if you are a Christian, a different faith or even do not belong to a faith, we want every child to leave St Peter's feeling capable in their future life choices and loved for who they are.
