Welcome to Ash Field Academy
Welcome to the Ash Field Academy website! We hope you find it interesting and informative.
The pupils here are remarkable! They are keen to learn and strive to do their very best and make a positive contribution to school life. They make Ash Field Academy a great place to be with a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
In June 2013 Ofsted judged us to be an outstanding school. The report highlights the spirit of our pupils.
‘Pupils concentrate very well and try very hard in all that they do. Sometimes, this demands much physical effort, but they do not give up.'
We are an enthusiastic and professional staff team who keep the progress and development of children at the centre of our thinking. We believe strongly in creating new and exciting opportunities and making sure that learning is fun, engaging and relevant. Parents understand they are a vital part of the team and are very positive and supportive.
As we cater for children of all ages and abilities we are like many different schools housed under one roof! All of pupils have physical disabilities or complex medical conditions. In addition many pupils have learning, communication and sensory needs. We receive support from other professionals who provide speech and language therapy and physiotherapy.
We value our role as part of a wider professional community for children and young people with special educational needs. We are proud that we have recently been designated as a Teaching School and we hope to use this as a springboard to further develop our outward facing work as a leading provider of professional development both in Leicester and in a wider national and international arena.
