Welcome to Ashton West End Primary Academy Website.

On the 1st March 2015 the school converted to a standalone academy. Since conversation the academy has grown in size and has made improvements in pupils’ achievements and progress, raised standards across the academy and has improved the quality of provision.

Since conversion there have been many improvements to the academy building in order to improve the learning and teaching environment. In 2015 we increased the Pupils Admission Number from 45 to 60 to accommodate the demand for places in the academy. Since then the number of pupils in the academy has increased and we are over subscribed in some year groups.

We have had extensive work undertaken to improve the external and internal areas of the academy. There are now 17 classes with a total intake of approximately 434 (October 2018).

In the academy, pupils try hard to achieve their best. “Achievement is good. Pupils make good progress across the school from their starting points”. (Ofsted). “The staff and pupils enjoy working in this friendly and caring environment in which pupils are friendly, polite and considerate”. ( Ofsted Feb 2018). Our pupils enjoy coming to school, they like learning and they all try their very best.

We like to give our children an international perspective on education and we are fortunate to be partners with Changzhou Baoi Primary School in China. Both schools are working very hard to develop this partnership which will benefit our pupils and staff. In July 2018 pupils and staff from our partner school in China visited Ashton West End. This was a great opportunity for our pupils and staff to engage with our partners. We have also developed links with Mere Brow Church of England Primary School in Preston and pupils and staff have visited each other school. We hope this will be a continue to develop in the future.

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 academy with any queries you may have.
