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.
Mr Brookes - Executive Headteacher
Mrs C Dilks - Head of School
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 June 2019 was a short inspection, where the school was judged to be ‘good with many outstanding features'. The inspector recommended an early full inspection with a look to moving the school to outstanding in all areas.
The school converted to an academy on 1st September 2016 and is part of the Symphony Learning Trust. Please visit the trust website for more information.
The school site is split into three buildings; our newest building is the 'Treetops' which houses our Year 6 pupils, the 'Oak' building houses our Key Stage Two pupils in years 3 to 5 and the original school building, 'Acorn', is for our 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.
