Catholic Life

 Introduction -  Our Mission statement and The Catholic Pupil Profile 

Faith is our foundation and we live out this faith through the virtues and values of the Catholic Pupil Profile. The Catholic Ethos underpins all aspects of St Peter’s School life. 


Catholic Social Teaching 

There are seven key principes of Catholic Social Teaching, each of which are taught throughout the pastoral and academic curriculums. These principles are regularly mentioned during Assemblies including the formal terminology and an explanation of what this means in context. 

  • Human Dignity 
  • Common Good 
  • Subsidiarity
  • Solidarity
  • Participation
  • Stewardship
  • Preferential option for the poor 

Prayer and Liturgy 

A time to pray bell sounds at 8.35, 8.45 and 2.57 as a signal to say prayers at the beginning and end of the day. The particular tune is determined by the liturgical calendar. For example.

September – Gloria.

March – Jesus, remember me when you come into your Kingdom

October – As I kneel before you

April – Alleluia, Alleluia, Give thanks to the risen Lord 

November – I watch the sunrise 

May – Ave Maria 

December – When is he coming, the redeemer 

June – The Power of your love

January – Go tell it on the mountain 

July – I the Lord of Sea and Sky 

February – Christ be our light

Intentional in the way they live and use the resources of the earth, guided by conscience; and prophetic in the example they set to others

St Peter, our patron, is a source of great inspiration. ‘The rock’ of the church but equally somebody who didn’t always get everything right, makes him a perfect example.
