Welcome To Ashmount Primary School
At Ashmount, we believe in a philosophy that promotes a growth mindset in our children, staff and the wider school community where intelligence can be increased through effort, hard work and a commitment to one another as equals in our educational journey.
We believe in using teaching methods that motivate children to be actively engaged in their own learning, promoting perseverance, resilience and a can-do attitude. This approach nurtures children’s ability to think critically and creatively, and to collaborate and co-operate. We offer an environment where all cultures are respected and valued. We actively seek to identify and educate against prejudice through the attitudes and expectations that we encourage through our whole school ethos and the resources that we use.
We aim to work in partnership with parents, valuing their involvement within the school, recognising their part in their children’s achievement and in promoting a positive ethos throughout the school.
We expect a high standard of behaviour from the whole school community, which reflects respect for all its members and promotes a sensitivity to the needs and feelings of others.
Our Mission Statement is encapsulated in Ashmount’s School Rules:
We are kind.
We are responsible.
We always try our best.
