Head Boy and Head Girl

The big news in September was the result of the election for Head Boy and Head Girl. The whole school voted and Madalyn Lee and Logan Van Zyl, having given excellent speeches to the school along with all candidates, were the successful two. Emily McGrath and Oliver Fraser are now our Deputy Head Girl and Boy and will support Madalyn and Logan in their roles.

Our Official School Opening Ceremony

The Bishop of Horsham officially opened the school as a Primary School with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Thursday 19th October. Our Head boy, Hayden and Head girl, Evie's first official job was to give the Bishop of Horsham a guided tour when he visited to officially open the new building. They also had an interview along with Pip Fairweather for an article for the Church magazine

SIAMS Report - Outstanding

'The distinctiveness and effectiveness of Ashington First School as a Church of England school are outstanding'.

On Friday 24th March we had our Statutory Inspection of Anglican Methodist Schools (SIAMS). These occur once every five years and focus on:

  • ​How well the school, through its distintive Christian character meets the needs of all learners.
  • The impact of Collective Worship on the whole community.
  • How effective the leadership and management of the school as a Church school is.

​We are extremely pleased to have been graded 'Outstanding' in all areas.

Our congratulations go to Miss Martlew who last night won the West Sussex County Times Community Award for Outstanding Teacher, presented at a glittering ceremony at the Capitol Theatre, Horsham. Miss Martlew received over twenty individual nominations from parents in her first class at Ashington. I know I speak for the whole team when I say how very proud we are of her.

Our School Book Week

At school this week we have been embracing Book Week. This year we decided to all enjoy the same book, The Day the Crayons Quit written by Drew Daywalt and illustrated by Oliver Jeffers. Each teacher planned a range of exciting learning opportunities around this fantastic book which culminated with a dress up day on Friday. The children and staff came to school dressed as their favourite crayon: Red, Purple, Beige, Grey, White, Black, Green, Yellow, Orange, Blue, Pink or Peach. It proved to be quite a colourful event!


We have had a great start to the new year with the children and staff all immersed in our Take One Picture Art Week. This year the painting the teachers based all the children's learning around is 'Penelope with the Suitors' by Pintoricchio. Part of the story of the picture is that the suitors have to try to string a bow in order to fire an arrow and win Penelope's hand in marriage; all our Key Stage Two children had an archery session, one of the different cross curricular opportunites that was planned during the week.

Do look at the Class & Photo Gallery pages for lots more pictures of the children's work and activities.
