“To Seek to Open our Hearts and Minds to the Love of God and Learning.”

Welcome to Ashton St. Peter’s Church of England VA Primary School

‘An Outstanding Church School’                                                                                                                                                                “To seek to open our hearts and minds to the love of God and learning.”

We are a ‘Values School’ our value for October is Friendship:

‘When one will not quarrel, two cannot’.

On Friday, 1st July children, staff and governors were joined by the Bishop of Bedford the Rt Revd Richard Atkinson for a morning of celebration. The day started with a celebration service in the school hall and was followed by the official opening of the new Year 6 building.

A balloon release took place with a balloon for every child in the school and afterwards children were able to have a picnic lunch with their families.

Ashton St. Peter’s is a small friendly Church of England Primary school with 210 pupils situated on the west side of Dunstable in Bedfordshire.

Our aim is for all of our children to become happy, caring, responsible independent learners who achieve personal success and feel secure and valued in our Christian environment.

To achieve this we provide a strong, Christian ethos which encourages the children to love and respect one another and to love God. “Values Education” is embedded through Christian collective worship and throughout the whole  curriculum. We provide opportunities and positive role models to allow children to develop independence and responsibility. We plan and implement a broad, balanced “Creative Curriculum” which is challenging and inclusive to all and are continually looking for ways to innovate and improve what we do.
