At St. Peter’s C.E. Primary School we encourage our pupils to wear school uniform which we believe helps them to take pride in themselves by looking smart. The uniform also gives a sense of identity and the clothing is practical for school wear. We ask that every item of clothing is clearly and securely named, and that coats have loops to hang them from. Our school colour is royal blue. For more information about the specific items of clothing required for school, including PE Kit, please look at our School Uniform Policy.
Sussex Uniforms are our chosen supplier for our branded schoolwear. Locally based in Haywards Heath, they provide an easy solution for buying school uniform online. Please visit their website for further information
Explorers - Wrap-around Care Club
We are delighted to announce that from Monday 19th April, a new ‘wrap around care club’ will be available for pupils at St. Peter’s C.E. Primary School! In response to our parent survey of June 2020, and a subsequent growing demand amongst our current and future families, a governor working party was formed in order to explore viable options. We were therefore incredibly excited to be approached by Kiddie Capers who have only recently established themselves on our doorstep on the South of England showground. Offering both breakfast and an after-school club (with drop off and pick up to and from St. Peter’s) we expect that many families will embrace this unique opportunity. For more information, please see the attached flyer.
Hot School Meals
Chartwells are the chosen West Sussex contractor who provide hot school meals at St.Peter’s. The beauty of hot school meals at St. Peter's is that you do not need to sign your child up for the whole week. Parents who are in receipt of benefits may be eligible for free school meals. If you are not eligible for free school meals but your child is currently in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2 then they will automatically be entitled to Universal Infant Free School Meals and you need not apply. To find out what delicious food will be offered to your child as part of the 'Steamplicity' service, please follow the link below to the current menu.
