Information about this school

St Peter's is smaller than the average sized primary school. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for the pupil premium (additional funding provided for children in local authority care, those from services families and those known to be eligible for free school meals) is low when compared to other schools in the country. Most pupils are of White British heritage.

The proportion of pupils supported through school action is well below average. The proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is also much lower than average. The school exceeds the government's current floor standards, which sets the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress.
