As a Christian church school we are rooted in faith but reach out to all.
At the heart of our school are a set of core Christian Values. These underpin our whole ethos, curriculum and school life and aim to ensure our pupils leave Ashford CE Primary School as happy, secure, caring and responsible citizens. The values we promote are important within the school community and are values which will be important throughout life. In all that we do we strive to share, encourage and demonstrate positive values with our children; in order that they understand them and strive to live by them.
More information about the values can be found on the Christian Values for Schools website.
Our values are central to the Christian faith, as well as being common human values, and are taught through our half termly iShare Learning themes.
