Hello, I am Sarah Tarrant, the head teacher of Ashford Park Primary School and I would like to extend a warm welcome to you as your explore our school website, which introduces our three form entry primary school for children aged 4 to 11 (Reception to Year 6). We are exceptionally proud to be a community school, located in the heart of North Ashford, meeting the school place requirements for the families living in our local area.
Our mission statement of 'Inspiring a love for lifelong learning', through our aims of 'Achieving Potential Producing Success', encapsulates all that we stand for, through providing exciting, engaging and challenging learning opportunities for your child.
Ashford Park is a large, yet happy and friendly school, where everyone matters. We aim to provide the very best education for all of the children in our care, by contributing to their wellbeing, intellectual, physical, social and emotional development, working in partnership with you, our parents, our carers and our community. Our children are our richest resource and we seek to foster a love for lifelong learning. Even from such a young age, we fully appreciate that the education that we provide, empowers our children to make informed choices about their life and may guide their future.
At Ashford Park, we actively promote hard work, hold high expectations and support engagement through our curriculum, which encourages your children to build resilience and satisfaction with their learning. We hope that during your child's time with us, they enjoy coming to school, learn to like themselves and others and develop a love for lifelong learning. As a parent or carer, we want to work in partnership with you, concerning all aspects of school life. We endeavour to create a caring and positive atmosphere, to enable highly effective relationships with your child at the heart of all that we do at our school, supporting them to make the most of their childhood years.
We hope that our website provides a flavour of what Ashford Park is all about. If you would like to find out more, during these truly unique and uncertain times, please visit our September 2021 admissions information and video. We shall also be holding face to face school tours at 4.15 pm on 5th October 2021 and 6 pm on 11th November 2021 for up to sixty people for each visit, to come and enjoy our school and meet some VIPs (children and staff!).
I continue to be excited to come to work every day, whilst in my twelfth year as the Head Teacher of this thriving and caring school. Working alongside a team of staff who understand the uniqueness of childhood, and a dedicated Governing body, we look forward to welcoming you to Ashford Park Primary School in the near future, if you feel that Ashford Park, is the right school for your child and for your family.
