Welcome to Ashley Infant School.
I would like to welcome you to Ashley Infant School. At the heart of our school is our commitment to offering our pupils the best learning experiences and pastoral care possible.
We provide an environment which ensures a wide range of opportunities are provided for the academic and personal development of every child, and one which stimulates and motivates children to achieve with success and enjoyment. Our core values of Confidence, Happiness, Achievement, Respect and Motivation (CHARM) underpin our curriculum.
Our school is a friendly and exciting place to learn and develop the foundations of important life skills. Our dynamic teaching methods and aspirational ethos foster in our children a lifelong zest for learning, self-esteem and a ‘can do’ attitude. Our curriculum is inspiring and often extends outside of the classroom with visits to museums, castles, beaches and beyond.
We have extensive and well equipped grounds which enhance our curriculum and enable pupils to:
explore the natural world surrounding them in our wildlife area and pond,
enter our magical woodland to ignite their imagination or develop new skills in our forest school,
improve their sporting ability and team work skills in our Multi Use Games Area, and enjoy those precious childhood friendships and games in our playground.
Ashley is a school that values close partnerships with parents. We believe it is crucial to the success of our pupils to work alongside our parents to educate our children in these important early years. Relationships with parents are fostered in many ways, including parental workshops, family members volunteering in classrooms, regular parent/teacher consultations and an active Friends Association. When your child joins Ashley Infant School you join a happy, supportive community.
All staff and governors are fully committed to the principle that all children are entitled to equality of opportunity and a quality education. Ashley Infant School is a happy, inclusive school where children want to come every day.
Childhood is precious, at Ashley it is our privilege to ensure children leave with high standards and happy memories.
Mrs Sarah Dibben
