Welcome from Headteacher

On behalf of the children, staff, and governors, I welcome you to St Peter’s Church of England Primary School. 


We are a welcoming, inclusive family school with a strong Christian ethos, a sense of community and a commitment to excellence for all children in our care.  We aim to ensure that each one of our children feels safe, and is enthusiastic, secure and confident.  We do this by nurturing each child’s uniqueness and responding to individual needs.  We want each child to be successful in their learning and to make a meaningful contribution to the world.


We are extremely proud of our school and the achievements of all of our children.  In our last OFSTED inspection we were graded as a good school with many outstanding features.  Many of our children achieve very highly and we ensure that every child makes good progress in their learning.  We were inspected as a Church School in March 2015 and were graded as Outstanding in all areas of that report.  We think very carefully about the learning we offer to each child and you can find out more about this by watching our Excellence as Standard film below.


We are the largest primary school in Portishead and as such gain offer resources, and expertise in Primary Education.  In September 2014 St Peter's became a 630 place primary school.  In September 2016 we will offer 570 spaces and we will grow over the next two years until the school reaches capacity.  As part of the expansion we have benefitted from  a 4.3 million development and have many state of the art facilities.


We are a Church of England Primary school and have very close links with Portishead Church of England and in particular with St Peter’s Parish Church.  We aim to value and introduce faith but we welcome all regardless of their faith or belief.


We are very proud of our school and I hope that through this website, you get a taste of what we offer and how we work.   Whether you are a parent, a pupil or a friend of the school, I hope you enjoy finding out about St Peter’s. If you are a prospective parent, then I would be very happy to meet you and show you around.   


We look forward to meeting you and to a productive partnership with you as parents.
