Our Christian Foundation


As a school, we are proud of our Christian foundation and delighted to be part of the St. Peter’s Church family, here in Hixon. Like our Church, St. Peter’s CE Primary School is a place of welcome and whoever you are and wherever you are on a journey of faith you are most welcome here.

Our school works closely with our Church partner to provide our learners with meaningful worship experiences which are rooted in the Christian faith. Throughout the school year , the Church’s ‘Open the Book’ worship team lead fun-filled worship in school and, as a school, we regularly visit the Church to take part in and to lead acts of collective worship.  


Collective Worship at St. Peter’s 


Collective worship plays a central part in the life of St. Peter’s. Our worship is values-based and is the means by which our school’s Christian vision is expressed and lived. Worship is invitational and inclusive at every point; it celebrates the cultures and beliefs of our whole-school family. Each week a new theme is explored through our daily acts of worship, celebrated as a whole-school, key stage or class.

Church of England Vision for Education


St. Peter’s believes in the Church of England’s vision for education and supports the principles encapsulated within this vision, as detailed below. 

Their vision for education is deeply Christian, with Jesus’ promise of ‘life in all its fullness’ at its heart.

  • Educating for wisdom, knowledge and skills: enabling discipline, confidence and delight in seeking wisdom and knowledge, and developing talents in all areas of life.
  • Educating for hope and aspiration: enabling healing, repair and renewal, coping wisely when things go wrong, opening horizons and guiding people into ways of fulfilling them.
  • Educating for community and living well together: a core focus on relationships, participation in communities and the qualities of character that enable people to flourish together.
  • Educating for dignity and respect: the basic principle of respect for the value and preciousness of each person, treating each person as a unique individual of inherent worth.
