Introduction to the Lower Peover CE Primary School

Founded in 1710 Lower Peover Church of England School is a well-established and thriving rural primary school. It provides children between the ages of 4 and 11 the opportunity to develop and excel in a safe, quiet and friendly atmosphere. Nestling at the end of a cobbled lane next to the historic St Oswald’s Church the school is surrounded on three sides by open fields in the traditional village of Lower Peover.

With approximately 186 pupils Lower Peover is, by rural primary school standards, a medium sized school offering the intimacy and focus of a smaller school while providing the security and choice that typifies many larger establishments.

Lower Peover is a Church aided school and the links with the adjacent St Oswald’s Church are strong and ensure that children receive a strong Christian based education and leave the school with high moral values to carry them into their ongoing education and adult life.

Lower Peover School caters for all pupils regardless of their ability and needs. The staff are experienced, well trained and enthusiastic and deliver a broad well balanced curriculum. There is a focus on excellence throughout the school and educationally it performs very well, a fact that has been acknowledged in recent Ofsted reports.
