Aspiring, believing and achieving together!

It gives me great pleasure, as the new Head Teacher to join this hugely committed team of staff and governors here at St Peter's

St Peter's Brafferton is a small, friendly village school, also providing before and afterschool care from 8am until 6pm. Working in close partnership with our church, parents, pupils and our wider community, we work extremely hard and have high expectations of one another, to provide the best possible leaning environment for our children.

Here at St Peter's we strive to create a warm, caring and inspirational learning experience, where our core Christian values permeates through out our school community and enables our pupils to grow in compassion, truth, trust, friendship and endurance. Our supportive pastoral systems, combined with our school ethos and vision, contributes positively to our overall aim of helping  pupils to achieve to their best of their ability and developing a strong sense of responsibility for themselves, their peers and in the wider world. 

We offer a broad, well balanced and exciting curriculum, through which high standards of learning and teaching play an integral part – achieved through a combination of challenge, support, encouragement and praise – to ensure that all pupils fulfil their potential. We also take great pride in our physical education, which inspires our pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and physically demanding activities.


"The quality of teaching is good with examples of outstanding practice and pupils engage well with their learning".
