About the School
Ashbury Meadow is a vibrant, multicultural Unicef Rights Respecting 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 as Rights Respecting global citizens.
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 in which we we have created a sensory garden and also a wild woods area for forestieres to explore and adventure. We put a great deal of emphasis on learning outside of the classroom. Within the school grounds 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 as well as a wildlife and woodland area .
Class teachers are responsible for the children’s welfare and delivery of the curriculum. We have introduced a very broad curriulum to support the needs of pupils within our school which includes are own bespoke personal development curriculum. Each year group performs a local area investigation in which pupils use key geography and history skills to investigate places close to us. We work closely with a range of high schools to ensure a quality transition. We consider a child's right to a healthy lifestyle vitally important and as such work closely with City in the Community to develop a sporting and healthy lifestyles offer. We are very proud to have achieved the Sainsbury's Gold Sports Award and in November 2022 we were awarded the winner of School of the Year category at the Manchester Sports Awards. We understand that good mental health contributes to a child's healthy lifestyle and we a part of the national nurturing schools project. We are a Unicef Rights Respecting School Gold 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.
