About our school

Happy New Year everyone

Welcome to Ashwicken CE Primary School website from all staff, pupils and governors.

We hope that this website gives you a flavour of our friendly, stimulating and creative school environment. We have a very busy and exciting year ahead in our new school  including planning a new outside activity area, making our own films out and about around the school, carrying out exciting topic work ranging from ‘Robotics’ to ‘Amazing Me’ and keeping fit and healthy with lots of sports initiatives.

We strongly value working in close partnership with our parents, carers, local schools and the wider community.

Best Wishes from  Mrs Sue Collison, Headteacher

 

‘Caring for each other, caring for our world’.

Our Vision is

‘to promote excellence in education,

which values and encourages the pursuit of lifelong learning.

We want our children to be inspired and challenged,

through a stimulating, creative and caring environment

where all achievement is celebrated’.
