“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.”

Our core Christian value for the month of October is:



Ashton St. Peter’s is a small friendly Church of England Primary school with 175 pupils rising to 210 by September 2015, 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.

On Wednesday 26th February 2014 our ‘Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools’ (SIAMS) took place. This is an additional inspection undertaken, as we are a Church of England School.  It was implemented in accordance with the new September 2013 SIAMS framework, which is a very rigorous process.

Governors and staff are very pleased to report that our school has been graded as an ‘Outstanding Church School’.

We are very pleased to report that our school has been graded as a ‘Good School’ under the new September 2013 Ofsted framework, which is a very rigorous process. The report is extremely positive and we are very proud of the many statements which highlight why we are such a good school:

“Good teaching overall, and some which is outstanding, ensures pupils’ attainment in reading, writing and mathematics is above average by the end of Year 2 and remains strong by Year 4″.

“Behaviour is good and often excellent. Pupils are polite and courteous to adults and each other. They play and work well together”.
