About the School

 

School Information

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 put a great deal of emphasis on learning outside of the classroom. Within school we have created an outdoor classroom, KS1 and KS2 activity areas and further play areas in early years, including a mud kitchen, woodland walk and castle tree house. This summer we will be creating an auditory walk through another wooded area for the whole school to enjoy and learn from.

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 continuing our whole school project, based on our local area. Pupils will use key geography and history skills to investigate places close to us and present their work to the community. We work closely with The East Manchester Academy and other high schools 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. We are very proud to be starting our journey to becoming a Unicef Rights Respecting 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.
