Choosing a school for your children must rank as one of the trickier decisions we have to make as parents. As a parent, I understand how difficult it can be, and getting a feel for a school is just as important as SATs results and OFSTED gradings.
As we can't have our usual open evenings to show new parents what Ashleigh is all about, we are giving families guided tours after school every day, once all the children have gone home.
As a school, we did not think it was responsible to put prospective new parents, or indeed our current children and staff, at risk, by showing them around school whilst everyone was in.
So giving families individual tours, with all adults wearing masks and socially distancing, seems to be the best way to give people a taste of what we can offer their children.
If you have a child who starts school next year, please get in touch with the office and I would be delighted to show you around and answer any questions you may have. If you know someone who is thinking about which school to send their children to, pass this on to them.
I look forward to hearing from you.
