May I warmly welcome you to our school website.

Netherseal St.Peter's is a small Church of England primary school. We are very proud of our school in terms of its superb location, academic achievement and community spirit.  We lie in the heart of the National Forest, very close to the town of Swadlincote, South Derbyshire and are extremely close to the borders of Leicestershire, Warwickshire and Staffordshire. 

'I know the plans I have for you says the Lord, plans to give you hope and a future' (Jer.29:11)

We pride ourselves on our strong Christian ethos, based on the teaching of the church. As such, we have an unconditional acceptance for all children as they are, absolute aspiration for them to be the best that they can be and an unflinching commitment to make that a reality. Staff know and have time for each child as an individual and we care for every member of our community, providing them with the tools, values and skills to navigate our ever-changing world.

Children and families of any faith or of no faith are equally welcome in our school.

If you would like to visit us to see for yourself, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Our vision is for everyone to feel a respected, valued member of our school community, where we enjoy our own uniqueness and love our neighbours as ourselves. We will encourage our pupils to be confident, wise and creative, empowering them to be the best that they can be.
