On behalf of Ashton West End Primary Academy, I would like to welcome you to our website. I hope it will give you a flavour of our wonderful academy.  We are very proud of our school, our pupils and their successes.

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 465 pupils (September 2021). In August 2020, our EYFS classrooms were renovated and updated. We now have an open plan spacious 60 place reception classroom and a large 52 place morning and afternoon nursery. 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.

We aim to provide our pupils with the experiences, knowledge and academic skills to inspire them to become successful life-long learners. We want our pupils to be proud of the work they produce in our school, and this is underpinned by our motto: ‘Today I am proud of my school, tomorrow my school will be proud of me.’

We actively encourage parents to become involved in their children’s education. Our school is well-resourced with talented and committed staff. Working together as a school family, we can ensure that children are both happy and successful at school.

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.
