Welcome to Ashleigh Primary

We are all stars: Ashleigh makes us shine.

The purpose of this website is to provide an insight into the high quality provision offered within our school.  We hope it will be of interest to existing members of our community and for those wishing to find out more about us.

The Staff, Governors and I are committed to working together to provide the highest quality education to develop the whole child.  We are proud of our curriculum, which teaches children the key knowledge and skills of the national curriculum and allows them to apply it in engaging and exciting learning opportunities.  This successful approach means we build a love of learning in our children and attain very good results.

We aim to ensure that all our children enjoy their schooling and strive for excellence.  Equality, fairness and a sense of belonging are nurtured within our school.  We celebrate children’s successes in all areas and help them to embrace challenge.

Our school is welcoming and friendly.  We value parents and carers and work in partnership to secure the best outcomes for our children.  You are invited to contact us or visit at any time to discuss your child’s needs.

We are a forward thinking school and are continually looking to improve and develop our practices and our staff.  Whether through the use of ICT, outdoor learning or the Arts we constantly seek to provide memorable learning.  Each year we improve our school further through development plans informed by research and best practice taken from other schools.

Our school was judged to be ‘Outstanding’ in all areas by OFSTED in June 2018.  We were delighted that our school’s achievements were recognised in the report.  However, we continue to look for ways to improve even further, just as we would want our children to do when they succeed.

We look forward to working with you for the benefit of your child, so that they are equipped to become enthusiastic learners throughout their lives.
