Headteacher’s Welcome Message.

Welcome to the Ashfield Junior School website which has been designed to keep parents informed and to give newcomers an introduction to our school, to our staff, our governors and to the children.

I hope you will find our website informative and that it will answer many of your questions; but should you have further queries, please telephone, email or visit the school – you will be most welcome.

Ashfield was graded a good school, with behaviour and safety graded outstanding in our last OfSTED inspection which was carried out in March 2012. We are a school that is fully committed to continuous improvement. In July 2014 we were awarded the Gold Artsmark, celebrating our achievements and provision in the Arts.

Our children attain consistently high results in our end of Key Stage Assessments in Literacy, Numeracy and Science. This is due to commitment to hard work by staff and pupils; as well as effective partnerships with our families.

I am very proud to be the Headteacher of such a good school; leading a dedicated and highly professional staff team who aim to create a junior school in which every child will flourish in a caring, happy environment. “Inspiring Today’s Child for Tomorrow” is our motto; and my talented team of teachers and support staff work hard to create a positive and stimulating environment; and a curriculum which is enriched with a wide range of experiences that help our children learn and grow as individuals. Our children develop the skills they need not only for the next stage in their education, but for life in our ever-changing world.
