Cambridgeshire Schools' Funding
As you may be aware Cambridgeshire is the worst funded authority in the country. This means that, per pupil, we are allocated a significantly lower amount of funding than other similar schools in the country. The Cambridgeshire Heads continue to make representation to the Government over the unfairness of this issue but Jonathan Djanogly, Huntingdonshire MP, is putting forward a petition for fairer funding. We hope that you will sign it as a measure of your support. The web address for the petition is :

At St Peter's School every child does matter
It is our strong belief that as educators we can and must make a difference to the lives of the young people in our care. We work to ensure that the School enables its students to maximise their potential whatever their ability, background, culture, belief or disability.
We have high expectations and aspirations for all our students and we work to prepare them fully for the future beyond our school, recognising, nurturing and celebrating individual skills and talents. We provide a happy, caring, stable and orderly environment in which the highest quality of teaching, learning and development can take place.
We have a responsibility to develop confident, competent citizens of the 21st century in a totally inclusive environment. We develop skills to enable young people to make choices about their future.
We maintain a working partnership of co-operation between students, parents, staff, Governors and the wider community. At St Peter's both teaching and non-teaching staff work as a team to ensure that students are the priority and we aim to make every experience one of quality and wherever possible exciting and challenging.
Mrs V Ford (Head Teacher)
