“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


The school is partially closed to help control the spread of the coronavirus. Please do not bring your child to school and follow these key principles outlined by the government:

  1. If it is at all possible for children to be at home, then they should be.
  2. If a child needs specialist support, is vulnerable or has a parent who is a critical worker, then educational provision will be available for them.
  3. Parents should not rely for childcare upon those who are advised to be in the stringent social distancing category such as grandparents, friends, or family members with underlying conditions.
  4. Parents should also do everything they can to ensure children are not mixing socially in a way which can continue to spread the virus. They should observe the same social distancing principles as adults.

Our school remains open to pupils who:

If you feel that your child is eligible, please contact the school to discuss your requirements. We are happy to accept the children who meet the criteria above, but in reference to the key principles above, children should not be attending school when safe, alternative arrangements are possible.

Update: 1 June 2020

We are now also welcoming back children who are in Year R, Year 1 and Year 6. Please let the school know by Wednesday if you wish your child to return to school the following week.

The school is monitoring the number of children who are returning to school so that we ensure there are sufficient staff to cover the smaller groups. In the event of too many children returning and not having sufficient staff and space in the school, we may need to make the decision to cap numbers returning at this time.

Unfortunately, we do not anticipate having the capacity to welcome back children from any other year groups this academic year.

Daily learning continues on Google Classroom.

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.
