Healthy School Awards
In July 2007, St Peter's school was awarded 'Healthy School Status'. This covers a range of school provisions assessed against national standards including Healthy Eating, Physical Activity, and Standards of Care. We are proud to recognise the contribution by all members of the school community - children, parents, and staff, towards receipt of the award.
Active Mark Award
In September 2007, the school was accredited with the national Active Mark Award for Physical Education. In particular this recognised the school's provision of 2 hours quality Physical Activity for all pupils including the promotion of constructive play at break time through the Play Ground Leader Scheme. This provision was further recognised by Ofsted during the school 2010 P.E. subject inspection.
Bronze Active Mark Award
The Gold Active Mark has been achieved by delivering a range of activities and competition throughout school.

Smoke Free Zone
From 1st July 2007 St Peter's school (along with all Doncaster Council sites) is a smoke free zone. This means that smoking, including e-cigarettes, is not permitted on any areas of the school premises including the yard and car park.
In the past it hasn't been a problem as parents have been supportive of school requests. However, this notice is given as a formal statement of School and Council Policy.
School Milk and Fruit
From 1st April 2013 Cool Milk has taken over the provision of milk in school. Milk is provided free of charge to all children aged 'under 5', and also any Key Stage 1 (Reception, Years 1 and 2) pupils in receipt of free school meals. Parents of all other children in Key Stage 1 may pay for their children to have a daily drink of milk at a charge of £11.40 per term. Details concerning the registration are available from the Cook Milk website www.coolmilk.com
All Reception and Key Stage 1 children are given a free piece of fruit or vegetable each day as part of the national Healthy Schools Fruit and Vegetable Scheme. Key Stage 2 children are encouraged to bring a piece of fruit to eat at morning break.
