I am very proud to be the Headteacher of Ash Grange Preschool, Nursery and Primary School. It is my privilege to lead the staff and volunteers who make a real life changing difference to the children, parents/carers and community of Ash and beyond.
Our ethos is that the children, in all that they do, will embody these qualities:
We Care about every child and foster this caring attitude in all that we do. We teach children to care about themselves, others in school and those in the wider world.
We Learn. We want every child to achieve their potential, ensuring all have embedded the key skills of reading, writing, speaking and listening and maths when they leave primary school. Based on the Early Learning Goals and National Curriculum for Primary Schools learning is enriched through special events, visits and visitors. We believe passionately in educating the “whole child”, broadening children’s interests and developing skills so that they can excel, love learning and make ambitious choices for their lifelong learning and future.
We Shine. We want children to shine, every child is unique and we nurture this to allow them to shine and enjoy each day of school so that they live rich and full lives. We celebrate and recognise when children have made personal, class and school achievements. We expect children to take on responsibilities and have many special opportunities. We are proud to support events and organisations in our community and the world.
Our vision statement is that: “Children at Ash Grange Primary School will be active learners who take the important steps to achieve ambitious goals.
The values that underpin the teaching and learning experiences that all children will have are:
We work in partnership with parents, through mutual valuing and respect, to support each child in their educational journey. We expect every parent to be fully involved in the life of the school and play their part in supporting the school and its aims.
