About Us

St Peter's Catholic Primary School is a two-form entry primary school situated near the centre of Gloucester City and the only Catholic primary school in Gloucester. We are a multi-cultural school which celebrates pupil diversity in a warm, welcoming, enriching and spiritual learning environment.

Your child's spiritual and educational development are of great importance to us and this is reflected in our vision statement in which we aim to be a 'Learning in Faith Community in Constant Pursuit of Excellence and Enjoyment'. Through spiritual development we will help your children to understand the important role that God and Jesus play in our daily life and we will provide them with many opportunities to explore their spirituality. As our faith is at the centre of their learning we have an ongoing focus on the 'Core Virtues' that Jesus gave to us through the Beatitudes. These values help us to live our lives like Jesus. We also want your children to be successful learners and to leave St Peter's Primary School with the skills and confidence to follow and achieve their aspirations. Every child matters at St Peter's Primary School and to this end the teachers involve the children in planning learning experiences and ensure that the needs of every child are met through well planned work delivered in a safe, caring and engaging environment. Their social, moral, cultural and physical development and their general well-being is also of importance. These developmental needs are met through exciting, dynamic and motivating learning experiences across the curriculum.

At St Peter's we work in partnership with you, the parents. You are the first educators of your children and your support and involvement in your child's learning is crucial. We operate an open door policy because we want you to continue to be involved in your child's learning at school. Your thoughts and viewpoints are always important to us, so please do not hesitate to speak to your child's class teacher or myself at any time.

We look forward to getting to know both you and your child while you are part of St Peter's Catholic Primary School and hope you will soon experience the pride that myself, the staff, pupils and governors feel of belonging to this great school.
