At St Peter's we value and are committed to building positive partnerships with parents and welcome all children and families into our school community.


The Curriculum

The Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum is split into 7 areas, 3 prime and 4 specific.


Prime Areas:

  • Communication and Language
  • Physical Development
  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development

Specific Areas:

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Art and Design


The Characteristics of Effective Learning (CoEL) are a vital part of the EYFS curriculum. The CoEL cover the different ways in which children learn. 


In class we link each of the 9 CoEL styles of learning to a Mr Men or Little Miss character. When we have observed a child showing a particular style of learning we give them a sticker with the corresponding character and they move their face on our CoEL board in the classroom. We do this to support the children in understanding how they each individually learn.


Each of the 9 styles of learning fall under three main categories, below the CoEL's are listed with their corresponding Mr Men or Little Miss Character.


Playing and Exploring

  • Finding out and exploring (Mr Nosey)
  • Playing with what they know (Little Miss Curious)
  • Being willing to 'have a go' (Mr Brave)

Active Learning

  • Being involved and concentrating (Mr Busy)
  • Keeping on trying (Mr Bump)
  • Enjoying achieving what they set out to do (Mr Happy)

Creating and Thinking Critically

  • Having their own ideas (Mr Clever)
  • Making links (Little Miss Brainy)
  • Choosing ways to do things (Mr Adventure)
Risk Assessments

Termly Information

On these pages you will find the planning for that term and exciting updates of what your child has been up to in school. Please click a flower to take you to the information for that term.

Key Person

Your child has been allocated a key person. This adult will be your main contact within school as well as the person who will keep you up to date with their progress.

We operate an open door policy and we are happy to speak to any parents that wish to speak to us. This is better after school, but if it is something that may affect your child during the school day, then we will be happy to listen in the mornings.

Uniform Reminder

Children are expected to wear: 

  • Yellow Polo Shirt
  • Blue Jumper or Cardigan (Preferably with The School Logo)
  • Black Skirt or Trousers
  • Black Shoes (Please No Trainers) 
  • Yellow or Blue Gingham Summer Dresses


For PE it is an expectation that children are in full PE kit for PE lessons:

  • White T-shirt
  • Black Shorts
  • Velcro Pumps

For PE lessons children must not be wearing earrings. 


All our school uniform with the school logo on can be purchased at Moonline on Standish Street, Burnley.


Please make sure all Uniform and PE Kit are very clearly labelled with your child's full first name or initials.

Online Safety

This is a helpful article explaining how to keep your child safe online. Please have a read.


Also, 'childnet' have released some resources for online safety activities that can be done at home.

What to Expect, When?

This is a parent’s guide to the EYFS to help parents and carers find out more about how your child is learning and developing during their first five years, in relation to the EYFS.


We have two copies in school to loan out. If you would like to borrow this guide for a week and have a read at home, please speak to a member of the EYFS team. 


Click here to go to the guide.

Read Write Inc.

In Reception and KS1 we follow the RWI scheme for teaching Phonics, Reading and Writing. When the children start in Reception full time we will begin teaching the Set 1 Sounds, learning one new sound a day. 


Please use the link below to support your child with pure reading of phonics sounds.
