Our Vision

At Holton St Peter, we believe that our children will develop a wide range of life skills which will enable them to choose a path in their lives that matches their capabilities and aspirations. We will ensure that they are able to integrate into society using the necessary skills. At Holton, we expect our school family to be kind and respectful to people and property. We understand that positive behaviour will bring greater rewards and opportunities. Our broad, exciting and creative curriculum is unique for our pupils and tailored to their interests and needs. It incorporates in-house skills with external expertise drawn from the surrounding community. We will broaden skills in order to prepare them for future education and life, and encourage children to be the best they can be. Our outstanding environment provides equal opportunities for the holistic development of each child as a learner, creator, thinker and leader.

Our Ethos

How do we help our pupils achieve our vision?

The Holton Family

Every child, parent, teacher and governor is part of our extended family that make Holton St Peter the wonderful place that it is. By allowing each child to be themselves, we support and nurture individuality in all our pupils and encourage independence from an early age.

Raising Aspirations

At Holton St Peter, we know that every child can and will achieve, and ensure that self-esteem is at the top of our priorities. When someone believes in a child, they believe in themselves and when children believe in themselves, they can achieve anything.

Support and Nurture

Two key words here at Holton St Peter. Every child is given the individual support they need, whether emotional or academic. Our team of highly qualified and experienced teaching and pastoral staff know every pupil individually and all work closely to ensure the expertise is shared to effectively help every child.


We work very closely with the local and wider community around our school, organising and running events that benefit groups outside of the school. We have built strong links with the local library, theatre, businesses and factories, giving the children experiences out of the classroom that will help their learning, boost self-confidence and enable them to become active members of their community.

A parent - Year 2

I would like to say thank you for having me in your wonderful school. It was a pleasure to come to work every day and work with an amazing team of people. I had a fantastic time getting to know all the children at Holton. Thank you for a wonderful year

Teaching Assistant 2015 - currently studying to be a teacher

I thoroughly enjoyed my time at the school. In particular the opportunity to work with all ages ranges and be involved with Sports Day, Transition Day and the School Performance. All staff were very friendly and supportive, helping me to feel less nervous. Holton St Peter is a wonderful school and has the best school community I have ever seen or been in. Because of the placement, I am now more open in considering a career with children or as a teacher. This has been an invaluable insight into the profession.
