Living the St Peter's CE Academy values each day...

Morning: Enter through Kneeton Road  gate and exit through the alleyway St Peter's gate. Adults to stay on the path in a one way system, children to leave the path and enter school. 


Preschool and Reception parents may walk with their child (through the double gate, one side left open) to 'old building' entrance doors, then rejoin the path to exit.


Bus children will be met upon arrival between 8.30am-8.50am and enter school straight away through the double gate.


At the end of the day the children will be waiting in the playground and join the one way system on the path to exit the school with a parent/carer.


Covid control measures:

Bus children will gather in the playground at the end of the day at their bubble bus stops, supervised by members of staff until the bus is ready to depart.

If the weather is severe the children will remain/moved to the hall, whilst maintaining bubble groups.

Outside waiting is preferred as this reduces the risk of transmission.

If the bus is late parents will be informed via a school text message.

2021-2022 - Please note these dates are subject to Governor approval.

Urgent Messages for School

If you need to contact school regarding collection arrangements for your child ie; after school or any other urgent matters – please ring the school office, rather than sending an email (or if you have sent an email can you still ring to confirm that it has been seen).  There are occasions when emails are not picked up during the day.  Thank you for your assistance in this matter.


We would like to remind you of the need for consideration

To minimise congregation outside of the school, keep to the allocated time slots – thank you

When parking outside of school especially at the beginning and end of the school day (particularly avoiding parking on the zig zags outside of school, opposite school on the other side of the road, outside residents’ driveways, on Cuttle Hill & also the Pub Carpark).  For safety reasons can we ask that children refrain from riding scooters/cycling in the School Playground. In addition, please ensure children do not climb on wall at the front of school.


Can we kindly ask parents & carers not to bring dogs onto the school grounds.  We would also request that dogs are not left anywhere that might block access or risk frightening a child.


Use of Playground Outside of School Hours

Please can we request that you do not allow your children to use the playground out of school hours for games including cycling, skateboarding, scooters, etc..  This is in consideration of our neighbour whose house is at the end of the playground which forms her only access and driveway

Thank you for your assistance in the above matters


Medicines in School

If your child requires medicine during school time an electronic form will need to be completed which is available on the website.  Medicines will be administered at lunchtime only (before or after) and we would ask you to bear this in mind when planning the timings for your child’s medicine at home – thank you.

Return form to :-


Milk (KS1 & KS2)

If you would like your child to receive milk and they are not already registered, please ask the office for a ‘cool milk’ leaflet that will provide you with further information and how to apply online.


Request for Withdrawal from School-Based Learning

For known absences please complete the above form which is available on the website

Please note that the school cannot authorise any time off school unless it is for a one off / exceptional circumstance. e.g family wedding, funeral, armed forces time off. A family holiday is not deemed exceptional to authorise unless there are circumstances around this. Should you choose to take your child(ren) away from school in term time it will not be authorised unless it meets the recommended guidelines.  Children with poor attendance are monitored closely.  Persistent lateness or absence from school may result in Parents/Carers being required to attend an Attendance Meeting with the Head Teacher. Yearly Attendance Target is 97+% as set by school Governors.
