Welcome to Upper Key Stage 2
Class 9 – Mrs Crankshaw
Class 10 – Mr Barber
Class 11 – Miss Fishburn and Mrs McNichol
We also have a student teacher, Miss Cramer, working alongside Mrs Crankshaw during the Spring term in class 9.
We have high expectations of behaviour at St Peter’s and staff implement the behaviour policy through our Golden Rules. Details of Rewards and Consequences/ Smiles and Golden Time can be found at the back of the partnership book.
The partnership book is an additional method to continue and develop communication between home and school. We encourage each child to read daily either at home or at school, which is recorded and signed. Details of the weekly homework are given and there is a box for parent/guardian to sign. The back of the book also includes your child’s targets and High Frequency Spellings.
All children will be given homework on the following days. This can be completed in the homework book, which has been provided for them.

Children are expected to arrive at school for an 8.45am start and come prepared with the correct PE kit and school uniform.
At St Peter’s we carry out on-going assessments throughout the year. These include assessments on your child’s skills in the core subjects of maths, writing, reading and science.
