At St Peters our students work together and encourage each other as equals in their learning. We also provide the individual attention they need in an inclusive, collaborative environment.

We believe that:
  • learners construct their own meanings from the ideas, objects and events that they experience;
  • learning happens when existing conceptions are challenged;
  • learning requires action and reflection on the part of the learner;
  • learning involves taking risks.
We also believe that learning is enhanced by:
  • activities that build on and respect students prior knowledge;
  • activities that the learner regards as purposeful and interesting;
  • constructive feedback;
  • using and developing appropriate language;
  • challenges within a supportive framework;
  • opportunities for students to work collaboratively.
