Ashmead School

Ashmead provides its children with two everlasting things, one is roots, the other wings.

Vision and Values

Our School


We truly believe that Ashmead is not just a school but rather, an experience. Each and every day we enrich children’s learning and provide inspiration and excitement through first hand experiences, role-play and the environment. Our ‘outstanding’ curriculum takes the children on a learning journey through exciting topics that see them experience, investigate, question and learn from the world that surrounds them. Our team of teachers and staff warmly welcome children into the school environment ensuring that they feel safe, secure and ready to learn. We believe our school to be central within our community, working in harmony with parents, local residents and other community groups. Ashmead School and its staff strive to foster a love for learning that will prepare them for later life and give them memories that will last forever.     


Aims of the school


Ashmead School represents the first stage in your child’s education.  Together we will work to enrich and support your child in their academic, emotional and social development.


Our primary aim is to provide the best possible education for our pupils and to prepare them for their future, engaging them in the lifelong learning process.


To achieve this


  • We will provide appropriate levels of support for all our children whatever their particular needs may be.
  • We will develop creativity and an understanding of the world in which we live.
  • We will teach children to know themselves and others, and understand their place and importance in the world around them. 
  • We will encourage co-operation and independence, teamwork and opportunities for personal study. Expression through movement, dance, music, drama and art will form an important part of the learning process.
  • We will introduce children to the mysteries of science and the wonders of the past and present.
  • Children will interpret their learning through the written and spoken word, mathematical investigation and creative and performing arts.
  • We will encourage mature behaviour and social harmony with an emphasis on helping others and appreciating the difficulties others may experience.
  • Self confidence and a strong feeling of self worth will be fundamental in all that we do.
  • We will pay particular attention to providing an inviting, stimulating and engaging environment. The spaces beyond the classroom will be seen as an extension of the building and provide opportunities for further study and curriculum enrichment.
