Welcome to our website! St Peter's Church of England First School is a small, but ambitious school located in beautiful West Somerset. We cater for babies to 3 year olds in our nursery and children aged 4-9 years in the main school. There are five classes and each class is assigned a class teacher responsible for the education and pastoral needs of the child for one year.
We are very proud of our school and are delighted to welcome visitors. If you visit us, you will notice the calm, purposeful learning in every area of the school. We have a wide ranging curriculum which fully promotes a well-rounded approach and ensures children have access to a wide variety of topics and curriculum areas.
At St Peter's Church of England First School we seek to help children achieve their full potential. We are fortunate to have a hardworking and dedicated team of staff who hold high shared expectations for all of the children we teach. We encourage a love of learning, the development of self-esteem and strive to make our curriculum fun, exciting and relevant.
No doubt you will meet our Year 4 ambassadors who will be able to show you around and answer any questions you have about our school. They take responsibility for a variety of issues, such as playground support, sharing pupil voice and even decorating the Christmas tree!
The children and staff will be especially pleased to show off our wonderful outdoor provision. Every child has access to Forest School where they wear suitable clothes and participate in a variety of activities such as making food, creating shelters, managing the site in a sustainable fashion and woodcraft. In addition, the outdoor areas are used to support our delivery of high quality PE, to provide backdrops for history re-enactments and space for science experiments.
We have seven values which we focus on throughout the school year: respect, friendship, responsibility, perseverance, wisdom, trust and love. These are reflected on throughout the day and during collective acts of worship and the children are able to articulate their understanding well.
We always show parents around personally and encourage potential parents to come and have a look at our school when we are at our best; in lessons and during the school day. If you are interested in joining our school community, please get in touch with the school office as we may be able to offer Covid-secure visits.
