School Events 2017/18
Each year our staff/pupils put on an amazing Christmas Fair! This year was no exception!
We had a range of stalls throughout the school with bottle, chocolates and sweets tombola which are always incredibly popular!
We also had many food and drink stalls from Asian food to cornbeef hash and a hot chocolate and cakes!
In addition, we had a Santa’s Grotto, raffle, decorate a bauble, jumble sale and many more.
To date we have raised an amazing £1,500, this will go toward school funds.
St. Peter’s on BBC One – Children in Need
This years CIN was extra special! Working together with the BBC, we were involved in creating a sketch that was shown during Children in Need!
Children in Need
Each year we raise an amazing amount for Children in Need and we have lots of fun doing it! This year was no exception! We took part in numerous activities to raise money such as face painting, decorate a biscuit and many more!
Here at St. Peter’s we hold a Remembrance Day assembly during school time, where we remember all those who have lost their lives throughout the wars that have taken place. Our Head Boy & Girl also join the Radcliffe Remembrance Day Parade alongside Mr Wedgeworth to lay a wreath in remembrance.
Macmillan Coffee Afternoon
Around the country many people held a coffee morning to raise money for Macmillan Cancer. Here at St. Peter’s we had our own event to raise money for the charity in memory of Kirstie Higham who very sadly passed away in July. We raised an amazing £498.29, THANK YOU to all who contributed in any way to that amount whether you donated cakes or just came for a cup of tea!
In years 4,5 & 6 they were visited by Greater Manchester Fire Service. They each had a session learning all about at trying CPR!
On Sunday 8th October some of our children attended St. Peter’s Church to celebrate Harvest. They represented us beautifully! The Children were involved throughout the service. They sang some of our school favourite harvest songs they also discussed with the congregation our most recent event, which was ‘Send a Cow’ (see below for more details)
Send a Cow
On Friday 6th October we had a fundraising day in aid of ‘Send a Cow’.

The day consisted of a non-uniform day where children were asked to dress up as cows or in black and white. We also had a cake sale and in addition to this we asked children to decorate a milk bottle and create their very own ‘moooo’ney bank and to donate the pennies they had managed to save. Finally, did a sponsored read sponsored by their families and friends!
School Events 2016/17
To finish off our school year we had our annual Summer Fair on the Thursday 6th July. We enjoyed a wide range of stalls, BBQ, donkeys, bouncy castle, tombolas and much more.
Throughout the school we celebrated Eid, with a party. Many of us dressed up in our best clothes and ate some fantastic food brought in from home.
Creepy Crawly Show KS1
On Tuesday 25th June, in Ks1 we were lucky enough to have a visitor. The Creepy Crawly show came into Yr1 & 2, we all got to learn lots about the animals and even handle a few (with lots of care).
Christian Aid Week
Christian Aid Week (15/5-21-5) is an event the school really looks forward too and this year is no different. We did alot of fundraising activities such as car wash, cake sale, sponsored walk and a designing competition.
40acts is the generosity challenge for Lent, created by UK Christian charity, Stewardship.
In April, as a school we began the 40 Acts challenge. We challenged both our staff and pupils to look at just one act of kindness a day.
During Easter we were really lucky to have a Christian theatre workshop group come in and work with some of the children. They looked at Easter and its meaning.
In February, our choir represented St. Peter’s at the Manchester Arena. This is an annual event that all members of the choir (staff included) really look forward too!
Defibs 4 Bury
In January, Miss Wilkinson worked closely with Defibs 4 Bury & Defibs 4 Bolton and we were lucky enough to be given our very own Defibrillator to use in our local community if ever needed.
Tesco Bags of Help Scheme
With the hard work of Miss Fitzpatrick & Mrs Rimmer we entered a bid to win grant money from Tesco’s Bags of Help Scheme. Amazingly, we were picked as one of the top three bids and eventually we were awarded second place, winning £10,000. This was used to create plots for each class in the playground, where pupils could care for their own plants and vegetables. The money was also used to enhance our playground, we had new markings placed on the playground (which we love) and also new equipment to enhance our sensory garden.
Our annual Christmas Fair is something that we all look forward to! We had some wonderful stalls this year. We had Tombolas, food stalls, Santa’s Grotto, design a bauble and many more!
Bank House Nursing Home
Our Choir visited Bank House Nursing Home over the Christmas period to sign some classic Christmas songs!
