Welcome to our school! Due to COVID19, we are currently open full time for key workers and children in Reception, Year One and Year Six as per Government guidance. We have also been able to offer spaces to other year groups from 8th June with high quality home learning being offered for those having to still be at home. We are delighted that we will be able to welcome all children back to school full time from September 2020 and communication has been sent home to parents about this. If your child is due to start school with us in September, then information about this can be found on our News and Events page.
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
