Dear Parents/Carers and Children
Welcome to Asterdale Primary and Nursery School. The purpose of this introduction is to give a picture of the kind of school Asterdale is and to provide the information about the school.
Our aim is to give each child in school the best possible start in life. To achieve this aim we believe in a balance, between care and structure; focusing on the basics and wide ranging and interesting learning activities; and between respect and consideration. For each child to reach their potential and to feel that, whatever their abilities, they have a real value, we provide a balance between high expectations for children's work and positive rewards for all children's efforts.
Asterdale is committed to working closely with parents and carers, because we want what you want - the best for your child. Asterdale aims to provide a happy and positive environment for everyone, because we know that children who are happy and secure will have the best chance of doing well at school and so inevitably in life beyond school.
This information relates to the current school year. I hope you find the information helpful and informative and look forward to working with you over the coming years. Please do not hesitate to get in touch.
Mrs Karen Forrest - Headteacher
