About the School
Ashbury Meadow is a vibrant, multicultural primary school, which in July 2015 was awarded outstanding in all areas by Ofsted.
At Ashbury Meadow we believe in the value of every child and adult who enters our doors and becomes part of our community and by showing value, we expect them to show value and respect towards one another. We encourage and support every child to reach their true potential, leaving them equipped and empowered for the next step of their life and learning journey.
We are situated in the heart of an urban regeneration area in a superb primary school building, which opened in September 2004. The building was extended in 2015, enabling us to move to two form entry and creating a wonderful open plan Early years resource. We have extensive grounds, including an internal courtyard which we use as a sheltered growing area and also a wildlife and woodland area. We are presently improving our outdoor provision, creating an outdoor classroom, KS1 and KS2 activity area and further play areas in early years.
Class teachers are responsible for the children’s welfare and delivery of the curriculum. We have introduced a creative curriculum, based on project based learning . This year we are starting the first of our whole school projects, based on our local area. Pupils will use key geopgraphy and history skills to investigate places close to us and present their work to the community. We work closely with The East Manchester Academy to ensure a quality transition and also enable our pupils to experience sports, science, maths and literacy activities that we cannot provide at primary school.
Safeguarding is paramount to the life of our school and we have a wonderful team of staff who work tirelessly to ensure the safety of all pupils, this includes supporting families as well as pupils.
