About the School

St Peter’s School is a caring community where your child can grow into a self-confident and motivated life long learner. We aim to ensure that your child enjoys being part of this caring and secure community and plays an active role in its development and that of the wider local community.

We are a big school with over 400 pupils, but we are known for our friendly and warm atmosphere. Every child is special here, and we get to know them as individuals and aim to meet all their social and academic needs.

At St Peter’s School, we aim high. Our motto is ‘Reach for the Sky’. We aim to provide excellent stimulating learning experiences, and we want every child to achieve the very best that they can in all aspects of their learning and development. Learning is seen as an exciting activity for both children and adults and we encourage children to engage in a broad range of experiences both in and out of school. I am a firm believer in enriching the curriculum through visits, visitors and special experiences. The school is literally next door to Cannock Chase, and we are able to use this wonderful resource in our science, geography and outdoor education curriculum. We are a church school, and have very close links with St Peter’s Church in Hednesford.

We understand that your child will be most successful and happy when the school works in close partnership with families and carers. We will keep you informed regularly of how your child is doing in school and invite you to a range of activities for both children and parents. These include class assemblies, school productions, open days, church services and fetes etc. All parents and carers are encouraged to come into school and discuss any issues you may be concerned about with your child’s teacher or a senior member of staff. Please contact the school office to make an appointment.
