Our Learners!

Underpinned by our core Christian values of Community, Compassion, Truth, Trust, Friendship and Endurance, St Peters School Brafferton has an overall aim to nurture and develop enquiring, critical minds and creative imaginations, along with the self-esteem and disposition to use them to the full.

We aim to provide a broad and balanced curriculum through which high standards of learning and teaching play an integral part. Also, here at St Peters, we want to ensure though our curriculum that each child enjoys learning and achieves their potential. We want to create an attractive, stimulating and challenging learning environment which is has a secure and friendly atmosphere, where children feel safe and can develop a love of life long learning.

St Peters School feels it is paramount to ensure equality of access to all school resources and learning opportunities for everyone in the school community, whatever their ability, background, race, gender or particular need. Equally important, we strongly believe that it is through our varied and rich curriculum, that we help all children to develop and recognise the beliefs, values and understanding of the society in which they live and their responsibility towards it and we enable children to  appreciate diversity through developing an appreciation and understanding of other groups, races, religions, ways of life and points of view.
