photoSt Peter's is a Church Aided School situated on the edge of the popular seaside town of Budleigh Salterton. The dramatic coastline, the beautiful Otter Valley and the rich wildlife habitat of Woodbury Common provide a wide variety of educational environments for our pupils to study.

The school has an extensive site which offers excellent recreational and educational facilities, both indoors and outdoors. We have a spacious Nursery which caters for 3 and 4 year old children. The buildings are on one level and all classrooms and teaching areas are easily accessible.

There is a large playing field, an all-weather playground, an environmental area and a covered swimming pool. A designated computer suite and library are located in separate buildings.


We regard social awareness as an important element of our children's education and therefore foster close links with the wider town community, including carousel childcare, youth and sporting organisations. We have a strong affiliation with the Anglican Church and regular contact with other Christian denominations.

Our premises are used extensively for Further Education classes and for two weeks in the summer we host the Imperial College Operatic Society's annual tour.

Swimming PoolICT Suite

Current community use of facilities include;

  • Swimming sessions, including Rookie Lifeguards, family swims, and Mother and Toddler sessions.
  • Evening ICT classes - aimed at those wishing to develop their skills and run in conjunction with Exmouth Community College
  • Line Dancing - the school hall is used each week for these events.


The Governing Body at St Peter's is made up Parents, Church Foundation reprentatives and staff. They visit the school regularly, help on trips and visitis.

Each Year staff and Governors spend a day together planning future developments of the school. Recently we spent a day looking at the schools vision for the future. You can view a powerpoint presentation of the School's vision here.

Last year we went to the Wembworthy Outdoor educction centre in North Devon and spent the day making scultupture, cooking outdoors and taking part in team building exercises!

The chair of the Governing Body is Rev R Charles.

Piece by the vicar:

This school began its life with a church foundation - that is why over half our governors are called Foundation Governors and are appointed by the local Parochial Church Council or the Diocese.Click here to enlarge

I have to say that we can count ourselves fortunate in this school for many reasons. It is a pleasent building. We might take it for granted sometimes but, when visitors come from the diocese for example, they will tell us that it is one of the best schools in the County, many schools being rather dilapidated as a result of years of neglect.

We are fortunate to have a comitted and loyal Headteacher and staff and not too many staff changes. Our children enjoy a stability that would be the envy of many schools in certain parts of the country.

There is great support from the parents. It is important that children see the influence of home as complementary to the work of the school. Where the school and the home are failing to work together it is all too easy for tensions to develop.

The school and local church have close ties - children attend services regularly as a whole school, particularly at Harvest, Christmas and Ascensiontide. A regular monthly family service gives families a chance to worship together in an informal setting.

Aclivities & Events

For the second year running the whole school took part in a special Healthy Living Week. We started each day with "Shake Awake", an aerobics session led by Miss Harrison, helping to get our blood pumping and our brains ready for action!

Shake AwakeShake Awake

Each class looked at healthy and unhealthy food, performing experiments like finding out the fat content of an average burger, the amount of salt in crisps and what ingredients go into chicken nuggets. We also looked at healthy food, making healthy burgers and barbecuing them, preparing fresh fruit salads and smoothies.

Those who walked to school had the opportunity of enjoying a free healthy breakfast, with fresh fruit, fresh orange juice, cereals and brown bread toast.

Some children performed fitness tests on the rest of the pupils, measuring pulse rates before and after exercise, using maths to work out heart rates and fitness levels.

We also had a guest fitness instructor who demonstrated daily exercises that are good for everyone – we all gathered on the field to have a go ourselves.

Timber TrailTimber Trail

It was during Healthy Living Week that our brand new timber trail was completed. Everyone was very excited to give it a go as it involves walking across moving planks, balancing on pods and the challenge of climbing a wall!
