Our Vision

‘The Lord is my Rock’ Psalm 18:2 building a firm foundation based on faith and knowledge to enrich life’s journey.  We learn to connect with God through valuing the world we share and nurturing our friendships; working together as a Christian family to achieve our best, learning with confidence to fulfil our dreams.


When the warm weather hits, please don’t be tempted to cool off in open water -
• The water is colder than it looks, even on a warm evening
• This can lead to cold water shock
• The current is stronger than it looks
• There are hidden dangers beneath the surface

If you see someone in trouble in the water:
• call 999;
• encourage them not to panic;
• and, if they can’t stand, float on their back in a starfish shape.

Welcome to our school

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

The school’s close links with the church and the community are part of its heritage and something that as a school we are extremely proud of. One of the first things that visitors to school comment on is the family atmosphere; everyone is known and valued and we are proud of our warm, friendly, caring ethos which has Christianity at its heart.

The school’s committed, caring and professional staff and governors are united in aiming for excellence and ensuring that every child has the foundations for success based on faith and knowledge.  We cherish working in partnership with parents and watching children grow from strength to strength developing resilience and confidence to be the best that they can be.  Their journey is enriched by being actively encouraged to be advocates of change and to be active global citizens.

Our school is set in beautiful grounds with lots of green space and a conservation area through which children learn to value the world we live in.  We encourage children to appreciate nature as well as engage them in outdoor learning in the various curriculum areas.

We offer a broad and creative curriculum to ensure that all our children flourish and achieve their potential.  We have excellent sporting and music provision and offer a wide range of educational visits and extra-curricular activities. 

We hope that by choosing our school, your child will thrive in every way taking full advantage of the many opportunities that we offer.

Christine Smith,      Head Teacher
