AN OUTSTANDING SCHOOL
What Ofsted had to say about Ashley School in on Tuesday, 9th January 2007.
“Ashley Church of England Primary School is an outstanding school. ‘A truly excellent home of all round education … we could not wish for a better educational start in life for our children,’ is a sentiment reflected by many parents.
Led by an outstanding headteacher, all those involved in the school put the pupils’ learning and development of new skills and understanding at the centre of all that they do. The headteacher’s clear vision and passion, along with the stimulating learning environment, ensures that pupils make very good progress and achieve exceptionally well. This results in them reaching well above average standards by Year 6. As many parents commented, ‘the school continues to go from strength to strength….we are extremely proud that our children attend Ashley’.
Leadership and management are outstanding and a paramount reason as to why the school is so successful The care and welfare and the personal development of pupils so that they become independent confident learners is also outstanding. The spiritual, moral and social development of pupils is excellent. Particular strengths at Ashley are the involvement of parents, the strong learning ethos and the way that the pupils are involved in the development of the school towards wholly renewable energy technology. This is unique to Ashley and is a major reason in fostering the sense of belonging to a caring school community which so many pupils and parents appreciate. The school has made very good progress since the last inspection and provides very good value for money. It has outstanding capacity to continue to improve.”
