“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





After the government announced a new national lockdown, the school will be closed to most pupils until further notice. The school is still open to the children of critical workers and children who qualify as being vulnerable.

The criteria for vulnerable children and a full definition of a critical worker as described by the government is given here.

Please remember that just because children may be entitled to attend, it does not mean that they should. The overriding advice from government is that people should stay at home as much as possible. Although trying to balance home schooling and working from home is difficult, we would ask that you speak to employers to see how they can support your new dual role instead. Every child in school creates extra contacts that are needed to spread the virus further. For those families who need us, we are happy to have your children in school and we will continue to follow our hygiene and safety procedures that have been in place throughout this year.

If you believe that you qualify and have not already informed the school, please email the school office.


All of our children are now expected to be accessing remote learning daily.

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.
