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.
