Thank you for your interest in Ashby Fields Primary School. We hope that the information in the booklet below will answer many of your questions and help you to know more about the life and work of our school.

Ashby Fields Primary School is a two-form entry community primary school. We have a commitment to inclusive education and strive to maintain a high-quality teaching and learning environment for all children.  We place a high value on establishing close links between home and school so that we can effectively work together to achieve the best for each child. We have a committed and hardworking team who are working together to raise and improve standards.

Parents are encouraged to share in their child's progress at open evenings, through consultation with their child's class teacher, by viewing their child's work and through three annual written reports.  Parents are always welcome in the school.
