Current news from Salway Ash school:
New Website!

Welcome back and Happy New Year to you all.

We are currently working on setting up a new school website which will incorporate a mobile app and online forum to enable easier communication and more effective information. We hope this will be up and running in the next few weeks. In the meantime we will continue to update this site but please be aware that there may be a short time of transition between the two where some information is not as readily available as usual. We will try to keep this time to a minimum. Please do call the school as usual if you have any questions.

Introduction from Mrs Crew

Salway Ash Primary School is a thriving, successful school. Excellence and enjoyment go hand in hand. I believe excellent teaching gives children the life chances they deserve. Our school does not fail any child.
High standards, especially in literacy and numeracy, are the backbone of success in learning and in life. Our school does not write off any child through low expectations.

I believe enjoyment is the birth right of every child. The very best schools bring excellence and enjoyment together. Children learn better when they are excited and engaged. What excites and engages them is truly excellent teaching.
Great teaching challenges children and shows them what they can do. When there is joy in what they are doing and achieving, children learn to love learning.
I enjoy each and every day at Salway Ash School. Your children will too.

We are pleased to report that attendance at Salway Ash is consistently high with improvements year on year. We operate a certificate incentive scheme which the children really enjoy and which has generated positive results. A high attendance rate suggests that children are happy in school and enjoy being here.

Attendance figures trend 2013-2015

Salway Ash school has been awarded a gold School Games Kitemark again for 2015!

The award is open to all schools, and can be gained at bronze, gold or silver levels. We are the only local school to have achieved a gold award. We had to prove an outstanding level of pupil sporting participation and achievement to gain the award including a good range of sports and PE on offer in and out of school time in which the majority participate.



Following our recent OFSTED inspection the report is now available.  We are pleased to be able to tell you that we have received a very positive report with an overall judgement that Salway Ash is a ‘Good’ school.
