Reception 2021 intake - information about our school
In normal times we would invite parents/carers to tour the school and to meet with staff in school to help you make your decision about choosing the right school for your child. This year we are unable to invite you to school.
We hope you enjoy our short (7 minute) video about Ashley C of E Primary School, and look forward to welcoming you to our school in September.
