Principal’s Welcome


Principal’s Welcome

Welcome to the Ashby Primary School!

As the principal, I am deeply committed to our school’s core values captured in T.E.R.R.I – Thinking, Enjoyment, Reflection, Resilience, and Inclusion. These values serve as our guiding principles, shaping every decision we make and informing our daily practices among both staff and students.

At Ashby, we take pride in our diverse school community, which mirrors the richness of the wider community. We celebrate inclusivity and embrace individuals from various backgrounds, ensuring that everyone feels valued and respected.

Our vision is simple yet profound: to prioritise the holistic development and well-being of every student. We adopt a student-first approach in all our endeavours, fostering an environment where each individual can thrive academically, socially, and emotionally.

“At Ashby, we are an inclusive learning community. We embrace respectful relationship that foster wellbeing and academic growth for all. Our TERRI values are the foundation of the personal and social development of our school community.”

We firmly believe that every child deserves the opportunity to unlock their full potential, regardless of their background or abilities. With this belief at our core, we are committed to implementing tailored strategies to provide a personalized learning experience for each and every child.

Furthermore, we recognize the immense power of forging strong partnerships with our families and the broader community. By working collaboratively, we can ensure that our students have access to the best possible opportunities for growth and success. We are dedicated to cultivating a supportive and well-resourced community that enhances the learning experience for our students.

At Ashby Primary School, we cherish our existing community partnerships and are always eager to explore new opportunities for collaboration. We extend a warm welcome to you and your family, confident that you will find a nurturing and enriching environment within our school gates.

Kind regards,

Steven Trotter

Principal – Ashby Primary School
