St Peter's CE Academy Christian Vision from the children's perspective:
We are proud that at St Peter’s we respect our Christian values. We feel safe because our friends are at school and it feels like home. We have amazing teachers who make lessons interesting and fun, this makes us so happy! We are a cheerful school who enjoy learning new and exciting things every day.
