Headteacher’s Welcome

SS Peter and Paul’s Catholic Primary School became an academy on 1st September 2020, joining The Good Shepherd Catholic Trust. We work in close collaboration with six other catholic schools, across Redbridge, Barking and Dagenham. The unity within the Trust, strengthens our desire for high standards and spiritual development.

At SSPP, we recognise that Christ is at the centre of our school and the teaching and practice of the Catholic faith, lie at the heart of our curriculum. As a Rights Respecting School (Gold award 2018), we have been praised for being an ‘outward looking community’ we have an inclusive and supportive ethos which is underpinned by respect for all members of the school community. Ofsted (2018) recognised that we have ‘created a warm, nurturing and creative learning environment that welcomes children from all cultures, faiths and backgrounds; everyone’s spiritual development, and social and emotional well-being, are of the highest priority.’

As a past pupil myself, I am determined to help every child reach their full potential, along with my dedicated team of hard working staff, we are highly aspirational for our pupils and as a result they make good progress.   

I am proud to be the Headteacher of this wonderful school; I hope you will enjoy finding out more about us.
