At St. Peter's spirituality is about the development of a sense of self, of soul, personality and character.
Our Vision and Values supports the development of spirituality as a school community and for individuals.
Love - The greatest gift we receive through Jesus Christ is to know that we are loved and in return can show love to others. The caring nature of the school promotes this in our daily lives.
Our first golden rule is to care, the compassion we show towards each other develops a sense of soul.
Learn - Every day we learn something new about ourselves that we treasure. Every experience, good or bad, leaves a mark and makes us unique in the eyes of God. The wealth of opportunities for all members of the community to learn promotes the importance of self-growth.
Our second golden rule is to share these experiences with others which develops a sense of self.
Live – We try to live our lives to the full every day, always trying our best, using the understanding of love and our learnt experiences to guide us. St Peter’s provides a safe secure place for us to live, make mistakes, experiment, reflect, and find ways to make a difference to flourish in the eyes of God.
Our third golden rule is to be truthful to ourselves and others which helps us to develop our personality and character and be proud of who we are.
Christians believe that; Everyone is a valued creation, individually and uniquely made by God, in his own image.
Read the story of the Kintsugi story - Kintsugi is a Japanese word meaning ‘golden joinery’. Artists use golden glue to repair cracks bringing unexpected beauty and, in some cases, allowing the light to shine through.
Christians believe that this unexpected beauty from repairing the cracks of life is their own unique spiritual journey which builds their relationships with others, the environment and with God.
We help each other to recognise these moments in life and to reflect on events that make us who we are.
Everyone one will respond differently to WOW, OW and NOW moments, therefore making each crack unique to us as individuals.
This is how we develop our very own sense of self, soul, personality and character.
Our Own Unique Spiritual Journey.

We continue to develop Spirituality with our children and staff at St Peter's. We have created a new quiet area where both children and adults are invited to spend a little bit of time taking note of being in the moment. There is often quiet music playing in this area and there will always be a mindful activity available for anyone to complete and add to our tree.
