Welcome To Ashbrook School

A warm welcome to our school on behalf of the children, staff and Governors.

The school strives to promote a warm caring environment where everyone feels valued and recognised, and there is a strong commitment to the welfare and well-being of children.

The professional staff is concerned with the development of the whole child, and high standards of behaviour and academic achievement are actively encouraged.

The provision of challenging work at the right level for each child helps to raise their self-esteem and gives them the opportunity to experience success and satisfaction. We feel that this positive approach to education is important, as it encourages the right attitudes, motivation and a real love for learning.

The school also recognises the importance of establishing good relationships with parents and the wider community, as it is by working together that the children's best interests are served.

If you have not already done so, come and see us soon! - we are truly proud of our school.



Ashbrook School follows the Milton Keynes admission policy


The children transfer to a local Junior School in the September after their seventh birthday. Particular activities will be arranged for children in their last year at Ashbrook to make the move to Junior School as smooth as possible. In the child’s final year, you will receive further details regarding transfer to Junior School.


Generally, children who have attended the local Junior School will transfer to Denbigh School, or to Hazley School, if sufficient places are available.

School Aims


“Everyone matters; everyone is important”


1 To establish a secure, caring community

2 To provide quality teaching and learning experiences within a stimulating environment

3 To promote high standards of behaviour and academic achievement

4 To enable children to appreciate their own, and other cultures

Ashbrook School

Breakfast, After School Club

and Holiday Scheme

The story so far

Our after school club opened only a short while ago but has very quickly become an integral part of the school. Attending children have settled in quickly and happily. Our already well qualified staff are attending extra courses to see how the clubs can be improved even further. The number of children attending is rising steadily. We also had a good Ofsted inspection in the summer term of 2006.

We have had good reports from parents and teachers saying our clubs are helping the children in many different ways. We also recently received a letter from one of our parents expressing her feelings about the club and confirming that things are going well. The letter reads as follows,

'To Whom it May Concern

I am writing with regards to your holiday play scheme based at Ashbrook school during the school holidays.

My son has just started to attend as I returned to work shortly after Christmas,and it has been a real relief to me to have such a great facility at the school, as my son is immediately settled in the environment as it is familiar to him.

The activities and care that are provided seem to be well above the average you would expect, and my son is always full of chat about his day and the fun things he did and looks forward to returning the next day!

I am also grateful that the scheme offers school hours (9-3) as that fits in with my working day, and the cost of care is very competitive.

I wish the scheme much success and I would like to thank the school and carers for offering this facility.'

Letters and comments like these are what keep us going and help us to move forward, knowing we are on the right track. Our aim is to help as many parents and children through their day. On that note there are still places left in our clubs so please contact us with any questions.

Starting School

The school serves the Two Mile Ash grid square and all children from this area are entitled to reserved places and will be admitted into school on a full-time basis in the September of the academic year they become five.

Parents wishing their child to attend the school should register as soon as possible and make arrangements with the Headteacher to visit school.

A Home/School Link programme is arranged in order to introduce you and your child to the school. During the Autumn Term, prior to part-time education, a home visit is made by two members of staff who will bring a package of materials from the school. The visit will be arranged in advance, and at a time convenient to you. In addition to this meeting, there will be an opportunity for you and your child to visit our school. Also, an evening meeting for parents is arranged, when a member of our Governing Body and a representative of the Friends of Ashbrook School Committee are also present. The ultimate aim of the programme is to enable children to settle into school happily, and to build close relationships between home and school. At the beginning of the Summer Term you will receive a letter giving further details.

Dinosaur Land

Our topic this half term has been about dinosaurs .Mysteriously a parcel arrived containing a huge metallic egg.  Nobody knew where it had come from, but the message asked us to look after it! Many of us have taken turns to be responsible for the egg overnight, where noises, movement and even some eating seem to have taken place.  Four weeks on we are still waiting so watch this space! 

We have been looking at fiction and non-fiction books about dinosaurs.  We have particularly focused on rhymes and opposites using the texts of Rumpus Jumpus and Dinosaur roars.

Shared reading

We are hoping to start a very special book sharing time where Early Years parents and adults come together to share stories. Please think about coming to join us on a Thursday afternoons at 2.35.

Role Play

A doctors surgery arrived in the imaginative area which included a baby clinic.  Lots of weighing, measuring, form filing not to mention injections took place.  Ashbrook's surgery receptionist was very helpful and managed to fit in everybody for an appointment!

Creative week- Chinese New Year

Early Years welcomed in the Year of the Dog in style.  We enjoyed making dancing dragons and with the help of an authentic dragons head costume took part in our own special dances.  The week culminated with an edible feast kindly donated by a local chinese restaurant and was certainly enjoyed by all.  Chopsticks were tried and used with different successes


Creative week- Family History

How many people live in your house? was a favorite song we all learned during this week.  We talked about our families and illustrated our own family trees.  We all became artists, when using pastels to create our family portraits.


Year One

During this half term we have centred much of our work around the topic Ourselves.  We have thought about our bodies and how we keep ourselves healthy.  We talked about healthy food and exercise. The children have enjoyed using the Gym set up in the shared area for activities such as skipping and timed activities.

As part of our work we visited some of the sculptures in central Milton Keynes.  We were inspired to create some figures for ourselves.  We used a variety of media including tin foil and wire to sculpt bodies and dried food stuffs, and clay to create faces. 

We have been grateful for all our help from parents this half term.
