Message from the Governing Body

As governors we are immensely proud of Ash Grove and the tremendous progress it has made.  Children at Ash Grove are given a wonderful and well-rounded experience by building their learning power, enabling them to meet the demands of the curriculum and learn about life.  Ofsted recognised this in our inspection of March 2013 when we were found to be OUTSTANDING in all areas that were inspected. 

This kind of achievement would not be possible without the truly talented teaching and support staff at Ash Grove who are dedicated to ensuring every pupil achieves.  Their commitment and talent has been recognised nationally through their own personal achievement, with two teaching staff being recognised as Specialist Leaders of Education.

Our school motto “Aspire” tells you how much we want our children to achieve. We help this process by enriching their experiences at every stage, with educational visits, visitors in school and a wide range of exciting activities which also help to ‘ignite interest’ in future careers.

Our standards in terms of national tests have gone higher and higher and now compare favourably with any school in the country. Our children’s behaviour around school is courteous, considerate and most of all, focused on their learning. All of this makes Ash Grove Academy a great place to be – for children, for parents and carers, for visitors and for governors. We enjoy our connection with Ash Grove and hope to meet you soon.

Kind regards,

Katie Siddall (Chair of Local Academy Committee)
