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


















Thank you for visiting the Spires Federation website

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. Nocton Community Primary has a new pre-school opening in September 2021 and Digby CE Primary has an established on site independent pre-school.  All three schools are at the heart of their small village communities.

We are proud to be

 'small schools, with wide horizons'.

Our Federation Values

Our key values enable us to realise our vision. They focus on the key attributes that we believe every person should have to be successful in everything that they do. 






Our children are happy, well behaved and successful in their learning. 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 best learning environments. 

Our Federation Vision:

 The Spires Federation is an inclusive, nurturing and caring family of small schools that pursues excellence through challenge and support. We enable this by:


  • Providing an energetic and stimulating and rewarding learning environment

  • Ensuring that both staff and pupils meet their potential

  • Ensure staff and pupil feel happy and safe

  • Recognise each person and as valued and valuable in the eyes of God

  • Being the beating heart of the community

  • Seeking opportunities for all members of our school communities to have wide horizons

  • Responding positively to change, to live well with difference and to feel excited about the future
