Choosing a School
Choosing the right school for your child is an important decision. We hope that the information on our website gives an insight into our small, friendly academy. Our aim is to create a stable, secure and supportive environment in which everyone feels that their opinions and actions are valued.
As a Church of England academy we uphold the values of the Christian faith and work closely with our local churches and the diocese, as well as the local community and local authority.
Although close to Norwich, St Peter’s retains the feel of a rural village school with a friendly community atmosphere. In this caring atmosphere we are able to cater for the needs of all children, providing exciting learning opportunities which enable them to make good progress and grow in confidence.
As a member of the Trinity Federation of Church Academies, we work together with Hockering and Great Witchingham Church Academies. We benefit from their additional skills, strengths and experiences, as well as being able to share resources, as well as our governing body and head teacher.

|Owl Class||Year 2|
|Nightingale Class||Year 3|
|Robin Class||Year 4|

Our class organisation as a small school has a number of advantages:
- Members of staff get to know each child extremely well
- Children are seen as individuals and work is adapted to suit each child’s ability
- There is a ‘family’ atmosphere, often lacking in larger schools
- Younger children look up to the older ones and raise their standard accordingly
- Older children take responsibility for the younger ones
