About the employer

St Peters R C Primary School

St. Peter's Roman Catholic Primary School has 200 pupils on roll, which predominantly serves the Parishes of Ss Peter and Paul, Earl Shilton. Our Lady and St. Gregory, Market Bosworth and St. Pius X, Narborough. We have a ninety square mile catchment area.

The school has a strong religious ethos. It is a purposeful and happy school with a determination to be successful and to give all learners the opportunity to develop fully, personally, academically and spiritually (see Mission Statement and Aims). Our Catholic ethos permeates everything we do. We would consider both Catholic and non-Catholic staff, who would uphold our Catholic ethos.

St. Peter’s is a very friendly place to work, staff get on well together and enjoy their work. We are very supportive of one another and strengths and difficulties are overcome by sharing and supporting one another. We have a mixture of long standing staff and teachers who have joined the school more recently. We like to think that the staff model the friendship and positive relationships between each other in order that the pupils can behave and support one another in the same way.

We give the pupils a lot of responsibility and this raises the bar with regard to our expectations of their behaviour. We do a considerable amount of work with our closest universities supporting training teachers. We get a lot of positive feedback from these students who visit and train here. We also pride ourselves with the amount of support we give to NQTs and other staff when they first start working here especially if they are starting their career here at St. Peter’s.

We are fortunate to have a big playing field where we have ample areas for play, PE lessons, growing plants and even pond dipping. In the summer the children are able to eat their packed lunches outside on the picnic benches provided, our PTA is currently looking at ways in which we can further enhance the outside play area for the pupils. All of our classrooms are large and well equipped.

Our school is inclusive. There are 13 children are on the school SEN register. The number of children with a Health Education Plan is 2. We have support staff whose role it is to support children with special educational needs.

Governors are very committed to the school and have a wide range of professional knowledge and experience which enables them to offer appropriate challenge and support. They are a friendly group and they are fully involved in school development planning, monitoring visits, reviewing policies, etc.

The successful candidate would be well supported by colleagues, we are all hard working and we all want the best for the pupils at this school. We know that by supporting new staff in their new role, the children will benefit.
