Parents' Induction Evening

Note to new parents: If your child is arriving in August 2017, there will be parents' induction evening on Wednesday 5 July.  Details to follow.


At Ashby School, students are confident about tackling literacy because every subject supports it in the same way. At Ashby, we have identified and introduced initiatives to help students become confident in the way they approach speaking, listening, reading and writing. 

A three stage Writing Frame standard used across all lessons supports students in developing complex sentence structure. As each subject uses the same format we create consistency in the way we approach writing as a school. This familiarity encourages confidence in students' approaches to writing.
