Please note that our school is currently closed until further notice due to the COVID-19 Government directive. We are open for a few children of essential key workers in the two weeks to Easter, yet closed completely over the Easter Holidays. We will be informing parents if we aim to re-open after Easter for these key workers should demand and staff availability make it a viable option. For children at home, please see the resources for you under the Home Learning tab on our website, using the log in details sent home to you.
We are still accessing emails so please use firstname.lastname@example.org if you need to contact us.
We have also updated our Child Protection Policy in light of these new working arrangements and this can be found in School Information under Safeguarding.
Take care and we look forward to seeing you all as soon as it is safe again to do so.
Welcome to our school and I hope you find our website useful and informative.
I am very proud to be the Headteacher of High Ash School and enjoy working with the children, staff, parents, Church and wider community to ensure we can be the very best we can for the children here now.
I firmly believe that every child has the right to ‘Grow Together and Shine Forever’ as confident, resilient, compassionate and respectful High Ash Stars and become the very best version of themselves, no matter what their starting points. We are also aiming to create children who are creative, technologically savvy and great communicators; ready to face the exciting challenges of their future lives.
At our school we aim to combine high levels of academic attainment and progress with an equal focus on developing individuals who will also make a positive contribution to society and are able to truly live our PROUD principles and have a moral compass underpinned by Christian values. We wish them to know and understand how to be a light and inspiration to themselves and others and this was the reason the children chose ‘Let your light shine’ (Matthew 5:16) in order to represent this.
Myself and all my staff are unwavering in our commitment to ensure every child reaches their potential, through a rich curriculum, through reflection and worship and through a drive to continuously wish to improve. Our mission is to ensure we maximise the progress of every child yet add to their moral and spiritual development in order to create well rounded young people who show care and respect for others too.
If you share in this desire for your children and would like to work in partnership with us, then please feel free to contact us and come and see for yourselves the school in action!
If you are an existing parent, then please remember everyone is welcome to the half termly Parent Forums for me to continue to communicate openly with you and of course there is my weekly newsletter home every Friday which provides lots of updates.
For more information on our values, range of provision and successful track record, please look at our ‘About Us’ and ‘School Information’ pages.
I look forward to continuing to take the school forward with you.
Mrs Sara Boyce
