Welcome to the St. Peter & St. Paul CE Primary School
“Striving for excellence together in a caring Christian community.”
RESPECT COMPASSION COURAGE
As a Church school, we believe that children grow in mind, body and spirit. Christian values are built into our teaching and ethos. Within this nurturing environment, we aim for each child to experience true fulfilment and to engage fully in the great adventure that is Primary education.
We are proud of the quality of education we provide for all our children. Our school’s curriculum provides memorable experiences and rich opportunities for high-quality learning and wider personal development and wellbeing. The team of teachers, teaching assistants, parent helpers and governors all work together to promote high quality education, enabling our children to become well-rounded individuals and lifelong learners as they reach their full potential.
Partnerships with our children (through, for example, the School Council) parents and our PFTA, the local community, the Church and outside agencies are very important to our success. Working together, we aim for all of our children to become:
- successful learners who enjoy learning, make progress and achieve;
- confident individuals who are able to live safe, healthy and fulfilling lives; and
- responsible citizens who make a positive contribution to society.
Do have a look at our website to get a feel for life at our school and please do not hesitate to contact us to find out more.

News and Reminders
Emergency Closures of School
On very rare occasions our school might have to close, either partially or completely. The most likely reason for this would be due to snow or problems associated with adverse weather. Any decision to close our school will be based first and foremost on the safety and welfare of our children and staff. Such decisions are taken with the upmost consideration for health and safety and the minimising of risk.
- If a full or partial closure is necessary, we will do the following:
- Notify the Local Authority, who should add the information to their website (www.lincolnshire.gov.uk/schoolclosures);
- Send a message via the TXTRound text-messaging system;
- Notify our two local radio stations, BBC Radio Lincolnshire and Lincs
FM, who will announce that we are closed
(it should also appear on their websites);
- Post a notice outside our school (if it is safe for someone to do so).

Reading – How You Can Help
Please could you ensure that you sign (and ideally comment in) your child’s Reading Record when you hear them read. The more you do this, the better your child will get – every day is best! Reading books are changed regularly in school, although not necessarily every day. You can, of course, read other things with your child too such as home books, library books, comics and magazines.
Strawberries and Nuts: We do have children and staff with severe allergies to strawberries and nuts. Please do not send children with any nuts, strawberries, strawberry flavoured products or products containing strawberries or nuts. Please remember this if children bring in birthday treats (e.g. cakes or sweets) for their classmates.
You can find more news stories and view our events Calendar on our News and Events page.
All parents, guardians and relatives of children at St Peter and St Paul’s are invited to become involved with the Parent, Friends and Teachers Association.
