Headteacher's Welcome

http://museumsatnight.org.uk/luke-jerram/

My name is Mrs Carol Baron and I am the very proud Headteacher of this great school. First and foremost, we are a learning in faith community, where Jesus is at the centre of all we are, all we say and all we do. Our Catholic ethos brings all in our community together so that we are equal partners in educating our children spiritually, morally, socially and culturally.

Our success lies in our strong partnership with parents who are incredibly supportive of our school and in the fantastic staff and Governing Body teams who are fully committed to ensuring that all children receive quality first teaching and learning in an exciting and enriching learning environment.

I hope that you will enjoy looking at our website and that, in reading the wide range of material available and looking at the many wonderful images, you will get a good flavour of our happy and exciting school.

Rosh Hashanah

At St Peter's we learn about other faiths. We recently learnt about the Jewish celebration of Rosh Hashanah. Rosh Hashanah is the Jewish New Year festival. It lasts two days. It commemorates the creation of the world. Rosh Hashanah is also a judgement day, when Jews believe that God balances a person's good deeds over the last year against their bad deeds, and decides what the next year will be like for them. It's a time for people to think about their priorities in life and to reflect on what has been achieved in the past year. It's a time of asking for forgiveness for wrongdoings. It's a chance for Jews to ask questions about their actions throughout the year. This year Rosh Hashanah was celebrated this year on the 25th September.

 

We have recently invested in a new school reading scheme titled 'Bug Club' and we are all very excited about it!
