Welcome

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the Peatmoor Community Primary School website and to a school where the key to our mission statement is simply, ‘Enjoy Learning; Enjoy Life’. Every member of our school community is proud to contribute to the success of our school.  Children here are motivated by learning and offered the most diverse opportunities that we can provide.  Our environment encourages them to be respectful and well behaved individuals, who develop high self-esteem and independence.

Being at Peatmoor is very much about being part of an exciting school community.  We encourage the very best from our children and aim to help them realise their fullest potential so that they are ready to positively embrace each next stage and to recognise and celebrate their many talents.  We also believe in fostering confident and constructive attitudes, which encourage our children to understand their role, contribution and responsibility both as part of our school and in the wider world.  We nurture positive and friendly relationships with everyone whilst continuing to develop our links with the wider community.  This is apparent from the start of every day, where we welcome children to our Heron Breakfast Club, right through the school day to Heron After School Club. Peatmoor School also facilitates opportunities for the whole community throughout the evenings, weekends and school holidays.

My door is always open, so please feel free to contact me about any of the detail on this website which I hope meets all of your needs. Visits to the school are welcome.  Please call the office to make a convenient appointment time.

Dear Parents and Carers,
Thank you for all your continuing support. 

The school has been closed from Friday 20th March and we will notify you when it fully reopens. Until that point children must not come to school, apart from those children of keyworkers and vulnerable children. At this stage, no-one is still able to say exactly how long schools will stay closed for. The learning logs are available on this website under the Year Group tab. The weekly newsletter is also a source of information for you all. We have set up a Covid19 tab on this website and you will find information relating to the current situation there as well as useful links to support wellbeing and online safety.

Here is another Home Learning website with many different ideas for your children to use. This is all completely free and might help support you at home. https://www.integra.co.uk/home-learning/

Here is a link to a You Tube clip explaining how to use Purple Mash. Hope you find it helpful. It has been produced by another school but is clear to follow.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=buFE0HnWvQ0

We have been given a link to some fun PE challenges that you might like to try over the Easter break and beyond!

BBC Bitesize has also updated all its online learning into different subjects and ages groups. Hopefully you will find this a useful resource too. They are all completely free. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/primary

Remember to be realistic with the home learning and enjoy this time with your children too.

With my very best wishes,
Mrs Libby Matthews
