Welcome to Ashton West End Primary Academy Website.  On the 1st March 2015 the school converted to a standalone academy.  This is now an exciting time for the pupils, staff, parents and Trustees who are looking forward to a challenging and interesting future for the school.

During the past three years there have been many improvements to the school building in order to improve the learning and teaching environment.  In 2014 the school had a new Reception classroom and a mezzanine built to accommodate the library.   We have also had extensive work undertaken to improve the external and internal areas of the school. In September 2015 there will be three additional classroom constructed to accommodate the increased in pupil numbers.

In the school pupils try hard to achieve their best. “Achievement is good.  Pupils make good progress across the school from their starting points.” (OfSTED November 2013.) The staff and pupils enjoy working in this friendly and caring environment in which “pupils are friendly, polite and considerate” OfSTED  November 2013). Our pupils enjoy coming to school, they like learning and they all try their best.

We like to give our children an international perspective on education and we are fortunate to be partners with Yangzhou Taishan Primary School in China.  Both schools are working very hard to develop this partnership which will benefit our pupils and staff.

We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website and that you find the information you are looking for.  Please feel free to contact the school with any queries you may have.
