Petersfield Church of England (Aided) Primary School is a small, rural school serving families from within the parish boundaries of Orwell, Arrington, Croydon, Tadlow, Whaddon and Wimpole and from many other locations outside of our school catchment. We are committed to providing a high quality education within a Christian context and we work hard to create a caring environment, both inside the classroom and out. Motivated by our Christian values of friendship, trust, creativity, peace and love, we provide a rich and diverse education focusing on excellence, enjoyment, perseverance and building relationships to support and inspire our pupils throughout this stage of their lifelong learning journey.

We are proud of our 2020 Ofsted inspection where we have been graded GOOD in all areas. The report states that 'Pupils and staff live by the school's motto of, 'together everyone achieves more''. Children enjoy their learning and work hard and are very proud of their achievements. Pupils behave well. Relationships throughout the school are very strong and 'staff care deeply and are vigilant about all aspects of pupils' safety'. Our staff have worked tirelessly to make the school what it is and we could not have received this outcome without their amazing effort. We are also very pleased that Leadership and Management was identified as a particular strength. The Inspector commented that leaders dramatically improve the quality of education, with strong and clear educational justification for all actions taken. He also identified that there is genuine teamwork throughout all the leadership teams.

Our February 2016 SIAMS report also highlighted that 'the distinctiveness and effectiveness of Petersfield Primary as a Church of England school'. Identifying we are good because of the clear vision and ambition, the exemplary relationships, high expectations, community links, strong SMSC and open-minded engagement of pupils.

We very much look forward to welcoming you to Petersfield where, as partners in learning together, we strive to provide the very best for each individual.

Laura Penrose and Rachel Peachey, Co-Headteachers.
