“And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church.”

Matthew, Chapter 16, Verse 18

Peter was told by Jesus that he was the rock upon which the Church was built. At Yoxall St Peter’s , we believe that our children are also the rocks upon which our future church and society will be built.

We are a Church of England School and have close links with St Peter’s Church in Yoxall. Living a life following Christian values underpins all that we do here at Yoxall St Peter’s Primary School. We strongly believe that whether you are a Christian or not, the fundamentals of the teachings of Christ will lead you to become a fully rounded person who respects and values others no matter what their background.

At Yoxall St Peter’s Primary School we want our children to develop a love of learning. We want them to become resourceful, enquiring and independent people who believe in themselves and dream of what they can achieve. We want them to have a mutual respect, understanding and consideration for the ideas, attitudes, values and feelings of others. We want them to value and be valued as part of their local community and citizens of the world. We want our curriculum to enable them to apply their skills and knowledge to all aspects of their lives so that they have the cultural capital they need in order to  succeed.

Our school year is based around six values which are TRUST, COMMUNITY, COMPASSION, PERSEVERENCE, FORGIVENESS and HOPE. In conjunction with our vision that if every person in our school, dreams, believes and learns, they will achieve whatever they set out to do in life. 


At yoxall st peter’s we want all of our children to: 

Dream, Believe, Learn and Achieve

Through the vision of the leadership team, governors, teachers and stakeholders of this school, our children will:


Dream and fight for a global community that lives and works well together  in order that everyone can thrive.


Believe in steadfast character development, hope, aspiration and courageous advocacy. We believe in the unique gifts and potential of every person, the rights of every person to develop as an independent, confident human being who is not afraid to ask questions about the ‘bigger picture.’


Learn the wisdom, knowledge and skills they need for life. We learn how to work collaboratively with parents, church and community, developing and cherishing the whole person – mind, body, emotions and spirit.


Achieve a school and seek a global society in which dignity and respect can flourish. Through our growing understanding of our own rights and responsibilities, we are the custodians of the future and will achieve God’s plan, reading and interpreting with wisdom the many signposts laid out for us on the roads, ways and global highways of our life.
