Starting school is an exciting time for children and here at Ashby Willesley School, we endeavour to make it as straightforward as possible. We are extremely fortunate to have a committed staff who share the common aim of wanting to give your child the best possible start in life. Not only do we strive to achieve the highest level in literacy, numeracy and all round education, but we also ensure your children are safe, happy and contribute to our high expectations of behaviour.
Establishing vital links between yourselves and the school is of paramount importance to all at Ashby Willesley Primary School and indeed, we welcome parents into school. There will be many times throughout your child’s school journey where you will be invited to come and join in and share their learning.
Each year we have two parent interview evenings where we will discuss your child’s progress and at the end of the summer term, we will send you a written report summing up the progress of the year. If, however, you wish to talk about worries you have over your child’s progress then please don’t hesitate to contact your child’s teacher.
The hard work and dedication of the staff, governors, parents and pupils is highlighted in our last OFSTED report, dated February 2012, where the school was judged to be ‘good’ in all areas.’
The school site is split into two main buildings; a newer building which houses our Key Stage Two pupils and the original school building which is for Foundation Stage and Key Stage One pupils. We are fortunate to have a lovely school site which is also used by community groups including Guides and Brownies.
Our aim at Ashby Willesley Primary School is to nurture happy, well-rounded individuals who are equipped to achieve their potential during their time here and beyond.
