4th July 2014
As usual it has been a very full week in school. On Tuesday we welcomed our new Reception intake and their families for a taster session. The children were brilliant and we are certainly looking forward to them coming in September. Our Year 5s set off for Middle School, feeling both a little anxious but also very excited. They bounced back at the end of the day, declaring that they too were looking forward to September. Change, as we all know is part of life, and here at Ashton First we are currently considering a significant change for our school. As you will read in the letter coming home today, the Governors are considering a proposal to convert to academy status and form a Multi-Academy Trust (MAT). Formal consultation will take place in the autumn term, but I do encourage you to read the letter, so that you can appreciate the changing educational landscape and feel informed about the choices and opportunities facing our school.
