Welcome to our website

Welcome to our friendly, four class Church of England primary school in the village of Forncett St Peter. Our children are aged from 4 to 11 years and come from the surrounding area as well as from the village itself. In September 2019, we entered into a federation with Carleton Rode CEVA Primary,  a neighbouring church school.  This new, close relationship has brought many benefits to both schools.

As a federation, we believe that every child is very important to us whatever their abilities or circumstances and we pride ourselves on knowing them all well as individuals whom we feel privileged to work with.  Our federation’s ethos is founded on the belief that we should love our neighbour as we love ourselves and show this by treating others as we would like to be treated.  This belief is central to all we do in our learning communities and makes for two happy and harmonious schools where our children feel safe, settled and ready to learn and grow.

Please email or telephone us if you would like to know more.

Best wishes,

Charlotte Whyte – Interim Executive Headteacher
