Description of the school

St Peter’s is smaller than average in size and serves a mixed area of private and social housing in Romford town centre. The large majority of pupils are of white British heritage and others come from a range of backgrounds, the largest groups being of black African or Caribbean heritage. The proportion of pupils learning English as an additional language is low compared to most schools. The percentage of pupils with learning difficulties or disabilities (LDD) is below average, and most have moderate learning difficulties and need additional support with basic reading, writing and mathematics. There are well established links with other schools and organisations, including very close links with the local church and parish community. The school has many national and locally accredited awards that include the Active Mark, the Healthy Schools award and it is an Eco School.
