What others say…

Our governors write about the schools’ developments and progress in the Governors’ Blog  

An end of year thank you letter from a parent of a Reception Child:

“After visiting ten schools we found Ashton. It looked small enough to be nurturing but big enough to be resourceful. So, we crossed our fingers and hoped that Ashton was the right one for our son. Boy did we make the right choice!”

A reply slip from an annual report:

“I can see my child’s confidence growing with each school year and that is down to the wonderful teaching, guidance, care and support offered by the school.”

And from a pupil:

“I love coming to school!”

ProductionA Thank You Card received after the Whole School Performance of “Sleeping Beauty”

“Thank you children for a wonderful show. You were all absolutely fantastic and we had an amazingly happy time. Well done – you can all be very proud of yourselves!”

    A Thank You Card received after a Community Assembly and Breakfast

“The range of activities of the children and their achievement is most impressive and a great credit to the dedication of all the staff. As well as the excellent work being done at the school, the happy atmosphere really does shine out.”

Following an information workshop for parents:

“Very informative, thank you. Can’t think of any improvements. It’s great to know we have such good support for our children’s learning.”

Following an Open Morning:

“Fabulous morning, well organised. Got a really good feel for how the school is run. The children did a great job as guides.”

A thank you letter that came out of the blue from a parent

“With regards to the staff – wow they are amazing, right from Reception to Year 5, they are supportive, approachable, patient and most importantly fantastic with the children… I am so proud to send my children to this school.”

Following an Art Exhibition:

“Excellent display of art! So much effort and work has been put, as always, to deliver the best. Thank you for always going that extra mile. Much appreciated.”

Following an e-safety workshop for Parents:

“I found the e-safety meeting really useful. It was good to see that the school is working hard to keep our children safe on-line and to teach pupils about using the internet safely at home.” “Just another example of how communicative, open, caring and professional the school is.”

A response to our questionnaire on how well we communicate with parents:

“We are always kept up to date with everything that is happening in school.”

And finally, a few quotes from our General Questionnaire:

“We like the direction the school is on under the directorship of Mrs Cole – it is ambitious in the best possible way.” “Children are encouraged to be independent learners. Ashton’s approach to education encourages a love of learning and often fires up their imagination.” “Support given to parents is fantastic! As a parent of a child with additional needs, this support is invaluable and much appreciated.” “Variety of excellent after school clubs provided.” …”My child is very happy and skips to school every day!”
