Our Ethos

Attitude, Aspiration, Achievement

Our core aim is to provide an excellent education to all the children in our care.

At Ashbridge, we firmly believe in developing the whole child, from their academic achievements through excellent education, to their personal wellbeing through our nurturing and caring environment and healthy meals. Our emphasis on outdoor learning and Forest School across all nurseries and school gives children the opportunity to explore new environments, develop and learn in the great outdoors and develop a love of nature. Children develop and are at their best when they are happy and cared for and our emphasis on this, particularly on the early years, is what makes Ashbridge such a special place.

We have always prided ourselves on the standard of care we provide with highly qualified nursery staff including teachers in all pre-school classes and school teachers with a wealth of experience and a wide range of excellent qualifications.  All staff are trained in Safeguarding and Paediatric First Aid and we also have a large number of our staff trained as Forest School Practitioners and Leaders.  Our dedicated staff team are supported by the Senior Leadership Team who have worked in a variety of areas and provide support to the staff to allow them to provide the best care and education possible.

The Ashbridge Promise

In 2021 we consulted with children, staff and parents to create the Ashbridge Promise, our vision for the coming years. Focussing on High Achievement, Curriculum Development, Global Awareness, Personal Development, The Ashbridge Family and Enabling Environments, the Ashbridge Promise sets out all our plans to ensure Ashbridge continues to offer the best to all the children in our care.

@AshbridgeMaxy: We were able to create our very own hungry caterpillars. We incorporated colour sorting, sizing & sequencing as well as storytelling into the session. #atelier @NDNAtalk #eytalking @cosydirect #earlyscience #earlymaths #EYFS #loosepartsinearlyyear https://t.co/w5179oXrZF
