A message from our Headteacher

Welcome to Ashton Vale Primary School.

I am proud to be Head of such a caring, vibrant school; leading a committed team; building partnerships with parents; and developing our rich, diverse and purposeful curriculum.

I joined Ashton Vale in 2020 with over twenty years experience of teaching and leadership. I feel privileged to be working with such a fabulous staff team and wonderful children and families.

Our children learn best in a safe, engaging environment. As a small school on a single site, we know all our children extremely well and are able to support every individual.

At Ashton Vale, we want children to develop their love of learning so they can leave primary school with the skills, attitude and knowledge to find success, enjoyment and the chance to choose their own futures. We are committed to providing the best possible opportunities for them to learn and grow.

Being part of Excalibur Academies Trust, our children have access to a wide range of experiences, activities and expertise.

Brad Arthur,
