We are a small, rural, village primary school in the heart of England. With only four classes, we are able to create a very warm and happy environment for everyone who learns, works and plays here. The class teachers are supported by learning support assistants.

Our facilities are wide ranging. We have an on site breakfast club every morning, where the children are provided with breakfast and a range of activities and we run an after school care club daily. Every term a variety of clubs run after school hours and at lunchtimes.

We are blessed with extensive school grounds, including a large playground, trim trail, large playing field and a pond area. These grounds are used regularly as the school has an outdoor learning focus. Our curriculum is exciting and engaging, with topics being enhanced by local walks, external trips and visitors to school. From year 5, children learn to play a musical instrument, receiving tuition from a specialist teacher who visits each week. A modern foreign language is taught to children in year KS2. Children from year 5 and 6 swim at Hinckley Leisure Centre.
As a Church of England primary school, we have extensive links with St. Peter's Church, visiting often and welcoming clergy into school. At St. Peters, we hold Harvest, Christingle, Easter and Y6 Leavers services over the year.
