St Mary and St Peter Catholic Primary School

May is the month of Mary

The children have been enjoying a prayer trail in our Spiritual garden as part of our devotions to Mary this month. On the trail they have found out about different parts of Mary’s life and how they can relate this to their own lives.

Creative Togetherness Cafes

The Creative Togetherness Cafes are proving very popular.  So far Year 3, 5 and Reception have had their cafes. Check the school calendar, for the dates of the next ones, if your child has yet to have theirs yet.

World Book day

We had some amazing costumes today for World book day.



Gymnastics Team take part in Competition

On Wednesday 30th January the school gymnastic team attended a competition at Ormiston High School.  They enjoyed performing and demonstrated the school’s values representing the school excellently.  The team have really benefited from the after school club that gives them the chance to practice their skills and develop their routines.

Fantastic opportunity to be involved in mathematics in a fun way. Thank you.

Nice time for parents and children to interact and know how they do their lessons.

Really enjoyed working with my child and others in their school environment. Making maths fun was very encouraging.

Christmas Performances

We had a wonderful last day of the Autumn term.  We used our talents to perform a range of Christmas numbers to our friends and families.

Save The Children 14.12.18

We had a fantastic day on Friday all the children looked very festive in their Christmas Jumpers and we raised an amazing £110.35 for Save The Children.

Santa also visited us which made the day extra special.

We wish all our parents and pupils a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

NDHS Student Chaplaincy Team come and share Advent Faith 4.12.18

We had a wonderful morning with students from NDHS sharing their faith with our KS1 this morning.  First they lead us in a collective worship on the theme of Advent.  Then they lead two workshop sessions, helping us to make a personal response to getting ready to receive Jesus into our hearts at Christmas.

Christmas Fayre 22/11/18

Thank you for all the wonderful donations and support that all the friends and families of the school gave to make this event such a success. The total taken on the day was in excess of £1,400.00. Well done to everyone.

Pudsey Day

Thank you to all the children and families who collected “Pennies for Pudsey”.  The children had lots of fun adding them to the Pudsey Bear shape on the playground.  The amount raised for Children In Need was a staggering £332.49. Well done everyone!

Brighten up For Harvest

On Friday 5th October we all dressed in our brightest clothes and had a joyful Harvest Mass, thanking God for all the gifts he gives us and thinking about how we can share our gifts with others.  As a result of this event we raised £233.93 for CAFOD.  On the 12th of October we were visited by Clare from CAFOD.  Our Mini Vinnie team were able to present her with a cheque to support the work that CAFOD do.  Clare shared with the whole school some of work that CAFOD do on our behalf and how our money would help people all over the world.
