During the COVID-19 restrictions, we have one school providing key worker childcare. Please email the school for contact instead of telephoning our schools.


A Warm Welcome

Welcome to the Spires Federation. We are a thriving, successful federation of three small, village schools: Digby Church of England Primary School, Dunston St. Peter’s Church of England Primary School and Nocton Community Primary School.

 All three schools are at the heart of their small village communities. We are proud to be,

'Small schools, with wide horizons'

Our children are happy, well behaved and successful in their learning. Our key values enable us to realise our vision and these have recently been updated to ensure that they enable us to be successful. They focus on the key attributes that we believe every person should have to be successful in everything that they do.






We have hard-working, talented staff who are committed to supporting each and every one of our pupils and their families to ensure that we realise our vision. This has recently been written after consultation with staff, pupils, parents/carers, Governors and the Diocese. It reflects the  unique qualities that every school has. It embodies where we are now and where we aspire to be in the future, to create the very nest learning environments,

'The Spires Federation is an inclusive and caring family of small schools that pursues excellence through challenge and support. We provide an energetic, stimulating and rewarding learning environment that seeks to ensure both staff and pupils flourish, and recognises each person as valued and valuable in the eyes of God. We work towards our schools being the beating heart of the local community and we actively seek opportunities for all members of our school community to have wide horizons. We aim to enable our schools to respond positively to change and actively engage in promoting social justice, to live well with difference and to feel excited about the future.'

I am extremely proud to be the Executive Headteacher at Spires Federation.

I hope that you enjoy our website. If you are a prospective parent, please do not hesitate to contact us to come and have a look around our wonderful schools.
