Hello, welcome to our school

Welcome to St Peter's & Clifton CE Primary School. The education we aim to provide at St Peters & Clifton is based upon committed teamwork involving teachers, staff, parents, children and governors. This teamwork is based upon mutual respect, support and understanding.

We want our children to be happy, to have high self-esteem and to develop confidence in themselves and their abilities, so that they can learn to handle new situations and accept the challenges that life has to offer.

Part of the value of school is experiencing and learning to cope with a wider social environment, learning to relate well to other people and beginning to see things from another's point of view, learning to share, to be tolerant and to care for others, to be honest, reliable and show concern for each other and their property, to value other cultures and other people's rights to their beliefs.

We want our children to enjoy school, to develop enthusiasm, perseverance and a questioning approach to life that will prepare them for the future stages in their education. We see children as individuals with differing needs and strengths. Our aim is to extend and support all children and help them to achieve their full potential. We have high but realistic expectations. We want children to give of their best, appreciate what they can do well and what they could make better. We work to give children a thorough grounding in basic skills, to develop a lively interest and curiosity about the world in which they live, to experience a wide curriculum that includes the creative arts and physical activities and to develop a love of learning that will stay with them throughout their life.
