Every child of God matters. Every person in our school community has been made in the image of God (Gen 1:27) and is loved unconditionally by God. Everyone is equal in the sight of God. Therefore we seek to love one another and serve others as Jesus did. All in their unique difference are able to flourish.
Our St Peter's School Promise...
On Thursday 21st November we had our statutory inspection of our church school. We are delighted to share the attached inspectors findings . We received an excellent overall judgement, with two additional excellent judgements for the impact of collective worship and the effectiveness of Religious Education. Thank you to all parents and carers in the role you all play in making St Peter's a very special school.
Bethany Children's Choir|
On the 20th November 2019 we welcomed the Bethany Family into our school. The Bethany Project is a children's home and school in Tanzania. The children in the family were once either orphaned, abandoned or abused and many have suffered traumatic experiences.
The Bethany Children's Choir are currently travelling around locally to bring an awareness of living conditions, cultural difference and poverty in Tanzania. They have sung and danced for us, as well as talking about their experiences and answering our questions.
We loved that the children's moto, that they live by in the children's home is 'love one another' which is close to our hearts at St Peter's. We recognise that ever person in our school has been made in the image of God and is loved unconditionally by God which is why we love one another and serve others as Jesus did.
For the third year running we've done it again!|

On Monday the 11th November 2019 the children and the staff of St Peter's C of E Primary School commemorated Armistice Day with a service lead by Year 6 pupils in St Peter's Church grounds.

Speak Out, Stay Safe|
We enjoyed listening to the NSPCC Buddy's message to 'Speak Out and Stay Safe' on the 7th October 2019. We wore non uniform and helped to raise £165 for the NSPCC charity.
Speak out Stay safe is a session available to all primary schools in the UK. It aims to equip a generation of children with the knowledge and understanding they need to stay safe from abuse and neglect. Children are taught to speak out if they are worried, either to a trusted adult or Childline.
Well done to everybody for taking part in the Bunny Hop to raise money for Pendleside Hospice this week. We raised an amazing £992.81! Well done too to Hamza in Red Class for raising the most money and winning the Easter egg!
Thank you to everybody for their support.
Book Aid International|
Our fund raising on World Book Day raised a total of £120.50, thank you to all those who visited the cake sale in school and brought books in to swap. All money raised will be donated to Book Aid International, every £2 sends another book around the world to the thousands of people who don’t have the books they need.
We encourage our families to think about using more sustainable ways of travelling to and from school each day.
By walking, cycling, scooting and using public transport, you can help to keep yourself and your children, healthier and fitter, as well as making your journeys to school kinder to the environment. This will also help to reduce parking issues and help to make the area outside school a safer place to be.
On the map we have indicated the streets that are 5 minutes walk away from school, please have a look and see if you can park and walk.
We did it again!|
Burnley Football Club Manager & Player Visit|
We welcomed two very special visitors to our school. Burnley FC's Manager Sean Dyche and club Captain Jack Cork. The children participated in a PE lesson alongside both Jack Cork and Sean Dyche who joined them in the activities and offered the children expert advice. At the end of the session Laiqa (Year 6) was given a prize for demonstrating the value of fairness. She will be attending the last Burnely FC home game as the referees mascot!
It was a fantastic afternoon and one the children will never forget!
The Railway Project|
Year 6 participated in an Art Project in which they collaborated with the Community Railway to improve Burnley Central Station. The project aimed to make the station more colourful and bright and bring to life the dull station. Year 6 were project managed by Daisy , from the Community Railway and worked with artist Alistair. We visited Burnley Central Station and caught the train to Preston Station, learnt about languages and trains before putting all this together in some art work. Staff from Manchester University helped us with the project. The work was all put together in a digital art project which is displayed in Burnley Central Station.
