Headteacher's Welcome

Thank you for your interest in Ashmole Primary School. I hope that our website will provide you with information about the school and help you to understand our values which are ambitious for every pupil.

A determination to deliver the best academic outcomes for each pupil whilst providing excellent opportunities for them to discover their talents in the wider curriculum is central to the school's work. We have established partnerships with a number of high quality organisations and the school fully funds every pupil in Year 1 and Year 2 to learn the violin or the cello.

Ashmole is a community school, with a family feel and the welcoming and inclusive environment attracts families from many cultures and backgrounds. The school successfully provides for a wide range of learners including those with Special Educational Needs as well as more able pupils who achieve standards that are greater than those expected nationally in their academic subjects. Pupils are supportive of each other and their positive behaviour, both in and out of lessons, is a strong feature of our success.

Ashmole was the winner of the London Evening Standard's 'Outstanding Achievement Award' in 2016 and has been judged as 'Outstanding' in all areas by OFSTED:

  • Pupils' behaviour is second to none. They are eager to learn. They are kind, confident, articulate young people. they respect those from all backgrounds and heritages. 

  • The school's values are shared by its whole community. Pupils leave Ashmole exceptionally well prepared to take their place in society as fully rounded citizens. 

  • All adults share the drive to raise pupils' aspirations and provide them with extensive chances to take responsibility and to think for themselves. 

  • There is a calm and purposeful atmosphere in the Early Years' provision. Adults are caring. Children are kept safe. Adults all know each child and provide for their individual needs extremely well. 

  • The Nursery and Reception Years provide children with a wonderful start to their schooling. They quickly learn new skills in a rich, stimulating environment.

Since having joined Ashmole as Headteacher in September 2021, I have very much enjoyed working together with staff, parents and pupils, to continue to make Ashmole, the absolute best it can be.

Ashmole prides itself on being a community school, with a family feel, that is often commented upon by visitors to our school.

If you would like to be part of this special school, please do contact us to arrange a visit to meet our welcoming staff and see our pupils enjoying learning.

We look forward to meeting you and your child and expect that, if they join our school community, they will enjoy a nurturing and successful time at Ashmole Primary School.
