God is at the heart of our school

Chaplaincy team

Welcome to the St. Peter's Chaplaincy Team page, which is full of information, links and updates about the work that we do in our school.
As a Catholic school we maintain very strong links with our parish priest, Father Frank, and Deacon Robin Pollard. They regularly come into school to lead and/or support liturgies and Masses, school events and sometimes just to talk to the children. We also have a school Lay Chaplain, Mrs. Connor, who provides a link between the school and the church. Mrs. Connor has selected a group of children to assist her in her duties and these children form our Chaplaincy Team.

Each junior class is raising money to support the education of a pupil in India through a charity called the Nevett Fund.

The Chaplaincy Team will be running Prayer Groups over two weeks in November in order to give pupils opportunities to pray for the dead. 

Sal's Shoes

Sal's Shoes 1

At the end of last academic year, St. Peter's pupils were invited to donate any shoes they had grown out of to a charity, Sal's Shoes.  Here is a picture of the shoes we collected on the last day of term!


One of the aims of last year's Chaplaincy Team was to support the school in composing a whole-school prayer.  Please find a copy below.  Each class has a copy of the prayer on their class's Focus Table and classes are encouraged to say the prayer at least once a week.

All Saints Day, 2018

All Saints Day, 2018 1 All Saints Day Mass

Pope Francis canonised seven new saints in October, 2018.  We celebrated Saint Oscar Romero in our All Saints Day Mass with Fr. Frank, parishioners, parents, staff and pupils.

Pupils from Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Class brought pictures of the saints during Mass to put on our Focus Table.  They also brought up a picture of a poppy, to help us to remember the dead from the World Wars and a picture of a white rose to remind us to pray for peace in our world.
