Ashley C of E Primary School

Welcome from our Head Teacher

Ashley is a large primary school for children aged between 4 and 11 (Reception to Year 6). From September 2021 there will be three classes in each year group, with 630 pupils in the school. We benefit from a huge site which includes a large playing field and a Forest School, where children experience outdoor learning.

We aim to create a primary education that nurtures the whole child; mentally, physically and spiritually. We aim to provide a secure, happy and stimulating environment in which your child can learn, and we aim to provide activities, tasks and challenges that enable your child to become a confident, independent thinker and learner.

Ashley is a community. Parents and carers play an important part in the life of our school and we work together to provide the very best education for your child. 

Through our widely recognised Harmony curriculum, we ensure that children understand sustainability and the Principles of Harmony. The aim in this learning process is that they start to realise their role in finding and leading on the solutions to the challenges we face. Underpinning this approach are the values of care and compassion, of respect and responsibility, of service.

We hope that you find everything you are looking for on our website. Please contact us if there is anything else.

To provide a happy, caring, Christian environment where our children develop independence and self confidence whilst achieving their full potential.

At our school and in partnership with parents, we aim to:
Ensure children acquire the progression of skills necessary for them to be independent learners.
Ensure all children experience success and reach their full potential by maintaining consistently high but achievable expectations.
Develop the ‘whole child’ in mind, body, spirit and imagination to ensure positive self image and self confidence are secure.
Promote the values of a Christian faith and help children to find their place in the communities and societies within which they live.
Ensure all members of the school community feel valued, happy and secure in their role within the school, regardless of ability, race, gender or creed.

At Ashley School we believe that the ethos is in the detail. It’s a smiling face. It’s a cheerful ‘Good Morning’. It’s a culture that says thank you and well done. It’s about holding a door for someone or caring for a friend when they are hurt or upset. It’s about thinking before doing and making the right choice to do things right. It’s about a quiet prayer in reflective time as well as a cheer of encouragement on the sports field. It’s about remembering that detail every day, and correcting it when it goes awry. It’s a striving to get it right.

In our school, we want to be:

o Respectful
o Responsible
o Kind
o Forgiving
o Honest
o Courageous
o Joyful
