Discussion St.Peters First School

Our
Local Church


I am Rev Brian Leathers, resident Vicar in the village of Alton. I have been a governor here for ten years and have been privileged to see many of the children born to couples I have married, come through the school.

The thing I love best about getting to know the children is their openness to questions, these are asked at our regular assemblies in school or church, or while I help in Maths lessons.

One of the distinctive parts of being a Christian school is that (with parental consent) children can do a course enabling them to take communion in the Church of England throughout the rest of their life. It is a sort of introduction to confirmation (which they are too young for at this school).

The school governors work throughout the three schools of the federation, and are a mix of church members, those who support our churches, and some who have no church background. We all work with the school to help the children to  grow to their fullest potential, through tailoring their education to their particular needs and abilities. I support the staff as well as the children as we all learn together, particularly looking at love, friendship and respect.

Every blessing

Rev Leathers
