Saint Peter's R.C. Primary School God is at the heart of our school

Religious education

Each Class has contributed to a whole-school prayer for our school.  You will see the prayer attached below.  There is a copy of the prayer for each class on or by the Class Focus Table.  One of the Chaplaincy Team took photos of the beautiful statue of St. Peter that local artist, Carmel Cauchie, sculpted for our school and each class has a photo of the statue on the copy of their class's whole-school prayer.

Current 'Come & See' Topics Parents Letter

 

Each term we look at 3 different topics as part of the 'Come & See' R.E. programme. We also look at 2 other world faiths during the year as part of the programme (Judaism in the Autumn Term, and another faith in the Summer Term).

Each term your child will bring home a 'Come & See' letter outlining the R.E. topics that they are looking at that term, and important liturgical dates during that term. You can also find a digital copy of that letter by clicking on the link below.

Religious Life At St Peter's Primary School

 

The school seeks to foster and encourage a Christian atmosphere and promote the Catholic Faith. Religious services and Masses are celebrated both at school and at Ss. Peter & Paul R.C. Church, Earl Shilton. Whole school assemblies are held on a weekly basis to which all parents are invited. At St. Peter’s we follow the ‘Come and See’ Catholic Primary Religious Education Programme. 'The programme has been developed to respond to the needs of children today in their faith journey, to enable them to grow in their religious literacy and understanding in a way that is coherent with current educational principles.’ (Rt. Rev. Peter Doyle, Bishop of Northampton, 2012) Father Frank Daly, our parish priest, visits the school regularly along with Father Daniel Palmer. Links are made between the school and church, particularly regarding the preparation for the Sacraments. Mrs Connor, our school chaplain, organises and manages the chaplaincy team on a

"The overall effectiveness of the Catholic life of the school and its provision for community cohesion are outstanding. St. Peter's is a welcoming inclusive school where everyone is valued as a creation of God formed in His own image and likeness. The Mission of the school is a lived reality where God is at the Heart of St. Peter's School."

(Section 48, Denominational Inspection Report, 2015)

 

Our Mission Statement is prominently displayed in our Welcome Area. It serves as a constant reminder that ’God is at the heart of our school’. 

The Mission Statement is displayed in every classroom. The children in each class have made a commitment to actively ‘live’ our Mission Statement throughout our school lives.

Each class has a prayer focus table. We display work from our current theme from "Come and See" and provide opportunities to explore Scripture and meaningful prayer in our daily lives.

We have a dedicated Prayer Room which the children can use as they wish. Mrs Connor, our school chaplain, is based in this room where she runs regular prayer groups. She also coordinates our 'student chaplaincy team' who plan and run whole school celebrations. There are religious artefacts in the Prayer Room for the children to take back to their classrooms. 

The "Come and See" topics are displayed in the Welcome Area. The children can identify that a common theme runs throughout the school. We display photographs of liturgies and celebration, alongside evaluations from those who took part. We celebrate our successes and constantly work towards improving Collective Worship within school.

Our amazing P.T.F.A has helped turn our dreams of a prayer garden into a reality. The Prayer Garden was officially opened and blessed in October 2015. Each class designed a stepping stone on a prayer theme, and these were added to the Prayer Garden throughout the opening day.

 

Our Prayer Garden is dedicated to the memory of our wonderful former school secretary, Mrs Saunt, who sadly passed away in 2014.
