St. Peter’s Elwick Faith Journey

‘Love your neighbour as yourself’ – Matthew 22:39. ‘This is my commandment: love each other’ – John 15:17.

At St. Peter’s, Church of England, Elwick, we firmly believe that every child is an individual in the eyes’ of God

“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.

‘Before God made you, He knew you… There is no one else like you’ Psalm 139

Our School was founded in 1850 and converted to St. Peter’s Elwick CofE Primary School to promote its close links to the local village church, St. Peter’s.

The sheaves of corn represent the farming community for which the school initially served.

The school is part of the parish of St. Peter and is named after St. Peter’s Church in the village of Elwick.

The crossed keys are the keys of St. Peter. It is said the St. Peter holds the keys to heaven and they represent Peter’s authority as leader of 12 apostles and head of the early church.


85% of a child’s experiences are beyond the realm of the standard primary school timetable year and it is crucial that we work alongside parents and the community to provide positive, motivational and aspirational experiences which will shape and mould them into unique individuals. It is from building on these foundational experiences.

We welcome all God’s children.

As individuals we grow together with God in our heart.

We have focused very clearly on 4 areas:

  • Prayer and Reflection
  • Collective Worship
  • Sacramental preparation /confirmation
  • Charities/ social action/ Courageous advocacy

Inseparable to these are the school values of:

  • Compassion
  • Thankfulness
  • Friendship and Trust
  • Service
