Of the 196 primary schools in West Sussex, St Peter’s results compare very favourably to other schools and see us in 9th place for attainment in English and Maths, and 17th place for ‘value added’ (progress from Year 2 to Year 6).

Steyning-Storrington Locality Statement from Peter Griffiths Jan 2013
A very warm welcome to our website. I hope you find it a helpful insight into the life of our school. If you would like to find out more about St Peter's than can be included here, then do please contact us and we will be happy to help.
In terms of our location and facilities, St Peters is set in the heart of the Sussex countryside in the vibrant village of Henfield. We are fortunate to enjoy the benefits of being a church aided primary but being large enough to offer single aged classes throughout. Our size also helps with the range of staff expertise, not least with the variety of additional after school activities.
The current school site in Fabians Way was first opened in 1957 but has benefited from a number of sympathetic additions, including a purpose built foundation stage unit for our Reception aged children and infant classes. We have also undergone further building works that has provided us with some exciting facilities, including a learning resource centre; school kitchen, music rooms, conference room and small group teaching areas.
We are also fortunate to enjoy very generous playground and field space that encourage sports, sports clubs and a healthy life style.
St Peter's was last inspected by Ofsted in June 2010 and received an extremely positive report that has recognised the many strengths within the school community. The full report can be accessed via the following link.
In January 2013 we received a letter from the Chief Inspector of Schools to say that as standards had remained at a high level at St Peter's since the last inspection, our next inspection had been deferred. A copy of this letter can be found below.
Our children are at the heart of the school. The care shown by those who work at St Peter's, together with the quality of the teaching, all help to make St Peter's a school the community can feel proud of.
We would be delighted to receive any enquiries concerning the admission of your child. Appointments to see the school at 'work and play' can be made by contacting Stephanie in the school office.
