Executive Headteacher's Welcome

Welcome to St. Peter’s Elwick C of E Primary School

Welcome to our website that gives you an insight into our school. You can find out lots of information about our school and get a brief overview of what our school is like, but we would welcome you to visit us to get a deeper insight into our schools and our team. We aim to give parents, carers and families a wider view of the learning opportunities and wider curricular activities that take place here at St. Peter’s Elwick CofE Primary School. We understand that many of our parents can find it difficult to get into school so we aim to share as much learning on the website as possible. We are incredibly proud of our school, the curriculum it provides, the achievements our pupils attain and the way our school forms a strong part of our local community both in Elwick village and in Hartlepool. In our school we hold high expectations and say that everything is ‘Always our best’. We aim to develop the whole child, ensuring pupils have a wide range of opportunities to succeed in academic work as well as music, sport and the Arts. We also firmly believe in respect and kindness towards others, which helps make sure our school is a vibrant, caring learning environment. The pupils in our school experience education in a small, village school situated in the countryside. We personalise our curriculum to ensure that pupils are educated about the world around them, including local wildlife, farming and using the local outdoor environment to learn. We are a small family environment who offer the widest opportunities, not limited by size. As one of our pupils aptly put it, ‘We may be a small school but we have a big personality.’ As a Church of England school we are clear in our aims that link to our Christian foundation and work closely with Reverend Canon Janet, Durham Diocese and our partner Church of England schools. We are proud to be part of Northern Lights Learning Trust. Our Trust website can be accessed here As part of the Trust we are able to share excellent practice across the Trust, learning together and provide our pupils with even more opportunities. If you would like to visit our school then please get in touch with our school office. Mrs. Jo Heaton Executive Headteacher
