Ashton Vale Primary School is a one form entry school in South Bristol. We are very close to the border of North Somerset with a green outlook which gives Ashton Vale a village feel with close access to all the benefits of a creative city. Ashton Vale is part of The South West Bristol Co-operative Learning Trust which gives many opportunities to both our pupils and staff.

Ashton Vale has many strengths which include being a flagship school for the Food for Life Trust, having a wide range of sporting and musical successes and a recent good Ofsted report. Parents and governors are positive about our aims and are supportive of our broad curriculum. The children are very involved in school life and take a proactive part in decision making. Staff at Ashton Vale are very supportive and we enjoy a sense of humour whilst caring for our pupils and the community.

Aims and Ethos

Our aim is to provide an inspiring education that will help all children to develop a love of learning and to achieve excellence. Through their curiosity and as a result of high quality teaching, the children gain the knowledge and skills that they need to understand the world around them as scientists, historians, artists, musicians, geographers and mathematicians.
