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.

 

School Performance Data – 2017

 

I am delighted with our results throughout school and especially pleased with how well the school has performed over time.

Progress information is especially important as it measures how much we add considering a child’s starting points. To be performing in the top 2% of schools for reading and the top 6% for maths is a significant achievement. We will work hard to improve our position in the Daily Telegraph’s list of top 250 schools!!

A huge thank you to our magnificent staff, children, parents and governors for working together to provide our children with these consistently strong outcomes, keep up the good work.

Please bear in mind when looking at performance data that there are many issues to consider in pupil performance, such as special needs issues, mobility issues, i.e. how many pupils are late entries to the school, etc.
