Church in School

At St. Peter’s we firmly believe that every child is an individual in the eyes of God and our new mission statement,  “ To give all the opportunity to be who God created them to be and have a fullness of life” reflects this. Theologically rooted in Genesis 1 verse 26 and John 10:10.


As our school has very close links to our local church, we like to offer the whole community a chance to worship with us at school. Canon Revd. Janet brings Church to our School regularly. Parents, carers and families along with pupils, staff, Governors and members of the community are all invited to attend these services after school whereby Revd. Janet explores faith and reflections in an interactive, engaging way.

We are honoured to have been part of the Annual Service of Remembrance for Road Crash Victims. This service is usually held at Durham Cathedral but was held virtually this year. Children from St Peter’s led the congregation of worshipers from Durham Cathedral and York Minster in the Lord’s Prayer as well as those nationally and internationally who accessed the service via the Archbishop of York’s social media channel. During a time of National Lockdown, it is a real privilege to be able to share in worship with the wider Christian community and hopefully provide some comfort to those in times of loss.

Young Leaders Awards

Young people have the power to change the world. We’re passionate about empowering our children which is why we are training our Big Fish group as Young Leaders, to help transform society and to inspire others to do the same. This award is run by The Archbishop of York Youth trust. Some of our KS2 pupils have already completed the training and within this term and Spring term the rest of the pupils in Big Fish will be fully trained Young Leaders.

Our children enjoy reflecting and sharing stories in our Forest Church
