On behalf of the Governing Body, staff and children, I would like to welcome you to SS Peter and Paul's Catholic Primary School. If your child is to join us soon, we hope that this will be the beginning of a very happy time for you and your child. We look forward to meeting you many times in the course of your child's career at the school. We welcome visitors and are very happy to show prospective parents around the school and answer any questions you might have.
The school aims to provide a secure and happy environment for your child. It seeks to be a community which compliments the home and the parish in attempting to live out the values of the Gospel and our Catholic faith. We work to ensure that children who attend SS Peter and Paul's Catholic Primary School receive both a balanced and thorough education, one which encourages all children to work to their full potential.
Mr J Johnson, Headteacher
SS Peter and Paul's is a two form entry Catholic Primary School which caters for boys and girls who are practising Roman Catholics, whose parents live in the parishes of SS Peter and Paul's and SS Mary and Erconwald's.
An all age school was built by Canon Palmer in 1903 in the High Road. A separate Infants School was established in 1932. The Senior Department in 1961 moved to form the nucleus of Canon Palmer RC Comprehensive School.
In 1985 the existing Infant and Junior Schools amalgamated and moved to a purpose built semi open plan building to become SS Peter and Paul's Primary School.
There are 15 classrooms, 2 halls (one specifically used for dining purposes, the other one for assemblies and PE) a playing field, library and two courtyards. School meals are cooked on the premises. The children have an excellent choice of food.
SS Peter and Paul's is first and foremost a place of learning. Great emphasis is placed upon creating a caring, happy environment, which is calm and ordered, and therefore conducive to hard work and achievement.
