 Dear parents and carers,

 Welcome to our website.
Ash Cartwright and Kelsey is a village school with a long history at being at the heart of the local community and we are proud of our happy, friendly and caring school. In 2021 we celebrated our 300th anniversary - there has been a school in Ash since 1721 - quite an achievement! We believe in learning together and allowing all children to flourish. Our goal is to ensure that children enjoy their time with us and develop a lifelong love of learning and leave with a wealth of fond memories. We are committed to developing an exciting wider curriculum and ensure that our children are taught in a stimulating environment by a team of talented, enthusiastic and dedicated staff. We are fortunate to be placed in a beautiful setting with lovely grounds and a new purpose built school. We really promote outdoor learning and make the most of our pond, MUGA area and nature area.
The value of positive links with home, school and the Church is really important to us and we strive to work closely with parents to ensure the maximum benefits for each and every child. We hope you enjoy your visit to our website. Please feel free to contact the school direct with any queries you may have or ring to arrange a visit to see us in action! If you require a paper copy of anything that is on our website - please ask in the school office.
Thank you for your visit.
