At Ashmount we believe in a philosophy that promotes both independence and a strong commitment to collective responsibility. These principles lay sound foundations for each individual’s growth and an awareness of the part they play in the school and wider community.
We believe in using teaching methods that motivate children to be actively engaged in their own learning, promoting self-esteem and independence. 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 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 and through 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.
