Welcome to Ashbrook Junior School.
Ashbrook Junior School is a successful Junior school, based in Borrowash in Derby and has children in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6. Our school was built in the 1960s and has extensive playing fields and outside space, as well as lots of classroom and indoor space for the children to use. Ashbrook Junior School is a warm and friendly school, with the wellbeing of our children at our core. We strive to ensure the school is a happy, positive place for the children to learn and be inspired by everything they do.
Our overriding aim of the curriculum is to educate children in a calm, relaxed and friendly atmosphere that encourages participation, creativity and hard work in learning. We will strive to support children in all aspects of their development, offering exciting opportunities and experiences that will enable them to flourish as successful, sensitive people. We will celebrate their successes and help them to play a part in making Ashbrook Junior School a place that is both supportive and caring, yet strives for excellence and high standards. We believe that the successful education of the children depends upon an effective partnership between home and school.
When the time comes for the children to leave, our aim is that parents/carers will be surprised by what their children have achieved and take with them the memory of a remarkable journey. We strive to ensure the child leaves with the confidence to be positive, to think creatively and to go on to be the best that they can be. The key learning attitudes we teach all our pupils and are the foundations of all we do in school. By developing these attitudes and dispositions in school, together we will build your child’s ‘learning powers’: Aim high – develop creativity, develop independence, having a can-do attitude, be a TEAM player, develop evaluative skills
We have a strong Parent and Friends Association who work tirelessly to organise events for the children to take part in to raise extra funds for the benefit of the school. We actively encourage all parents, carers and children to become involved in any extra curricular activities.
