In response to the global coronavirus outbreak, St Peter’s School, York has implemented a strict visitor policy to safeguard the health and wellbeing of the whole school community. Following instructions from the government, the school site will be closed to pupils (apart from children of key workers) from the end of the day on Friday 20 March with no indication given of when that situation will change. We ask that all non-essential visitors also stay away from the school at this time. If your visit is essential, please read our visitor policy before you visit the school.

We encourage our children take a leading role in influencing aspects of school life that are important to them, which they do mainly through our very active School Council. Made up of 12 elected pupils, two from each class in Years 1-3, the Council meets every week to discuss school matters with members of staff.

Our School Councillors enjoy the responsibility, helping to organise major events in the school calendar such as Clifton’s Got Talent and leading our various charity drives. Most recently, Clifton abolished single-use plastic water bottles.
