Welcome toAshperton Primary Academy

Welcome

Welcome to Ashperton Primary Academy!


I am very proud to be the Headteacher of such a vibrant and happy school. Visitors to our school consistently comment on the calm, purposeful and friendly atmosphere that exists here. Our children are kind and caring and do their very best in all that they do. Our staff are very dedicated and committed to providing our children with a creative and relevant curriculum and they all provide further opportunities for children to take part in and achieve at. We have very supportive parents and dedicated forward thinking governors. This has enabled us to achieve an 'Outstanding' result in our last inspection and resulted in the opportunity to become an Academy. We became the first Primary Academy in Herefordshire, and this enabled us to take advantage of academy freedoms to provide even better outcomes for our children.
