School Uniform

At St. Peter’s C.E. Primary School we expect all our pupils to wear school uniform which we believe helps them to take pride in themselves by looking smart.  The uniform also plays a key role in: promoting the ethos of our school; giving a sense of belonging and identity; and setting an appropriate tone for education as it 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 and more information about the specific items of clothing required for school, including PE Kit, can be found in our School Uniform Policy.  Monkhouse Schoolwear are our chosen supplier for our branded school wear.  Locally based in Haywards Heath, they provide a cost-effective solution for buying school uniform online or in person for our families.  In line with Department for Education statutory guidance, the use of branded items is kept to a minimum and there is no expectation for these to be worn, despite a number being available for purchase.  Please visit their website for further information:

Second-hand uniform is also freely available for parents to acquire and a regular event is held every couple of months.  Please keep an eye on the school calendar for when the next second-hand uniform sale is taking place.  Alternatively, please contact the school office if an item of school uniform is required urgently.

Hot School Meals 

Chartwells are the chosen West Sussex contractor who provide hot school meals at St. Peter’s. Partnered with ParentPay, parents and carers may select, book and pay securely (if required) for the exact meal options for their child. 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. It is important to note that even if your child is in receipt of UIFSM (Universal Infant Free School Meals – Yrs. R,1&2) or FSM (Free School Meals), and you are not required to pay for your child’s meal, it is still necessary to select and book your child’s meals. 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.

Packed Lunches 

Some of our parents and carers prefer to send their child into school with a packed lunch on some days.  Both the NHS Change for Life and Livewell websites provide some great tips for preparing a healthier lunchbox:

Home Learning

At St. Peter’s, pupils have access to a range of online services which are used to support the curriculum.  The school currently has a subscription to Numbots and Timetables Rockstars which are online resources used worldwide to help children further develop their mathematical skills. To access these sites, children must be issued a unique username and password. If you do not have this information then please speak to your child’s class teacher.
