"Confident and lively teaching in the Reception classes ensures that children make good progress."
Ashford Park is a three form entry primary school for children aged four to eleven and is situated at the west end of Ashford, close to Ashford Hospital, Heathrow Airport and the M25, M3, M1 and M40 motorways. In January 2015, the school was chosen by Surrey CC and commenced a large building programme, to accommodate the expanding school-aged population of Ashford North. The project involved the construction of nine new classrooms and extensive internal refurbishments. The Published Admission Number (PAN) for the school increased from 60 children to 90 children as from September 2015 commencing in the Early Years. Over a seven year period, the school will gradually grow to a total of 630 children. As of January 2018, we currently have 500 children on roll.
At Ashford Park we are extremely fortunate to have extensive and well used grounds and also have a number of therapy animals including our school ducks, Hugo, Jemima, Florence and Camilla; Ziggy our therapy puppy, and Blue & Donald our therapy assistant rabbits!
'I love Ziggy. When I feel anxious he just makes me laugh and I can feel myself relaxing!'
'Hugo is a big white duck who quacks a lot as he looks after his lady ducks. Do you know that the girl ducks lay an egg every single day.'
'We couldn't believe it, but when we were having our Christmas lunch, the bunnies had six babies! They were really small, their eyes were closed, but they still had tiny ears and little fluffy tails. Donald and Blue make great parents and I really loved our Christmas surprise.'
We are proud to have one of eight Surrey 'Learning and Additional Needs' centres, called the Acorn Centre, as a fully inclusive part of our school community. Currently we have 22 children who receive part of their lifelong learning in our fabulous centre. Due to the popularity of our SEN provision and expertise, there is an ever increasing need for specialist primary places, therefore the Acorn Centre has undergone extensive building works, to enable specialist infant/EYFS & KS1 teaching provision. Specialist teachers and teaching assistants support children who have complex special needs and/or disabilities enabling the children to make secure physical and academic progress in a safe setting, whilst developing social skills alongside other children in the school. To gain entry to our centre, the children have to pass through an SEN placement panel and have an Education and Health Care Plan (EHCP).
