From September 2014 our school will have its first intake of 60 reception age pupils in 2 classes…
Our first intake will be accommodated in a self-contained block at the Iford site, which has been specially redesigned to create wonderful internal and external environments appropriate to support teaching and learning in the Foundation Stage. Although they will be segregated from the older students, the primary pupils will be able to access the specialist facilities, the hall and the outdoor spaces. Parents will be able to take their children to the primary area of the school just like any other primary school.
St Peter’s will eventually move the Year 7 and 8 students to the Southbourne site, allowing the Primary Phase to occupy the entire Iford site. The buildings will be re-developed, transforming the vast campus, the classroom areas and facilities into an exciting and superbly equipped primary school.
Kathy North has been appointed as ‘Head of School’ and is leading the school’s development. We have also appointed two classroom teachers and will be appointing two teaching assistants after half term so that we have a team of staff with dynamism and vision at the opening of the reception classes in September 2014. We aim to create a curriculum and style of teaching that ensures rapid progress and engagement from the start. We want a school that works closely with families since educating young children is a joint enterprise between the school, the home and the church community.
