Welcome to Ashton West End Primary Academy Website.

On the 1st March 2015, the school converted to a standalone academy. Since conversion, 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 converting, there have been many improvements to the academy building in order to improve the learning and teaching environment. In 2015, we increased the Pupil 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 oversubscribed in some year groups.

We have had extensive work undertaken to improve the external and internal areas of the academy. There are 15 classes with a total intake of 455 pupils (January 2021). In July 2020, our EYFS classrooms were renovated and updated. We knocked down a wall to make a very large spacious reception classroom for 60 pupils whilst extending our nursery to make more facilities for those pupils. We have also had three new outdoor EYFS areas improved.

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.
