Dunston St Peter’s Church of England Primary School is set on the edge of the idyllic village of Dunston and adjoins open countryside. We cater for children from the ages of 4 to 11 in our four classes. Dunston was inspected by Ofsted in January 2017 and was graded as “Good” overall. You will find the report on the website. Dunston Primary is very proud to be a church school.

Our values of Success, Happpiness, Inspiration, Nuture for everyone underpin everything that we do. We have very close links with Dunston St. Peter’s Church. In July 2017 we had a Church Schools (Section 48) inspection and we were graded as “outstanding” in all areas. You will find the report on the website.


Dunston has both a Breakfast and an After School club, which both operate on the school site from 7.30 am and are run by school staff. 

The staff work across the federation work very closely together, leadership for the federation sits across the 3 schools but each school retains it's autonimy and uniqueness, responding to the needs of it's own communities. 

The Executive Headteacher for the Spires Federation Mr C Walls, shares time between the 3 schools, focussing on  developing the leadership and management of the schools, whilst the Deputy Headteacher leads the school and oversees the day-to-day running of the school. The Deputy Headteacher at Dunston is Mrs Emma Toulson.
