“Everyone is kind and caring.”

“At school I feel happy and safe.”

Quotes from parents:

“Both my children adore school and are so happy there.”

“The work in school, the home learning and online lessons, the care shown not only to the children but to us is truly appreciated.”

“Words fail me when I try to express how grateful I am for the care and kindness with which you have all helped me raise my children. You have a wonderful school simply because you have incredible staff. My children have thrived with you and for that I will always be thankful.”

“We will always remember her best school days with you all at St Peter’s. You are her true heroes. Every child is lucky to be cared for by you. Your school is wonderful.”

From a grandparent: “As a grandma and retired teacher, I see different things to parents and can only say that moving my grandchildren to St Peter’s was the best thing they ever did. Great school, made by great staff.”
We know and understand that:

Love thy neighbour as thyself.   (Mark 12:31)
