Primary School

Achieving success for all

Headteacher's Welcome

Headteacher’s Welcome

On behalf of the children, staff, and governors, I would like to warmly welcome you to Aston-on-Trent Primary School. We are a school at the heart of the village which prides itself in creating a happy, caring, family atmosphere where every child is encouraged and inspired to achieve their potential and develop a love of learning. We work closely with parents and appreciate that our strong links with families and the wider school community provide the best platform for our children to grow, learn and succeed.


‘Achieving Success for All’ is our school vision. I am extremely proud to lead a team that is committed to children's well-being, achieving high standards and providing the very best opportunities for all in our care.  Staff, supported by governors, work hard to deliver a rich and challenging curriculum; to prepare children for future education; and to help them acquire the skills and enthusiasm needed to embrace the opportunities, responsibilities, and experiences of later life.


The excellent start begins in Reception and continues through the school with staff providing a happy, supportive, and purposeful environment, and a curriculum that excites and stimulates children’s imaginations and creative thinking.   The curriculum is delivered through a cross-curricular approach which is further enhanced by whole-school themed days and other fantastic events including ASPA Day.  Frequent trips and visits, community activities and a wide range of after-school clubs further add to the opportunities available to children.


The school was last inspected by Ofsted in November 2019 when we were judged to be a ‘Good’ school.


Inspectors commented that ‘Pupils receive a high quality of education. They respect one another and relationships between staff and pupils are good. Staff have consistently high expectations of pupils. They want pupils to be able to do their best and enjoy what they are learning. Pupils are keen to learn and like coming to school.’


Please take the time to browse our website and find out more about our fantastic school. Visits to the school are warmly welcomed where you can see our school at first hand and meet our friendly children and staff. Please contact Mrs Shacklock in the school office on 01332 799 478 or email to arrange this.


We look forward to welcoming you to our school, and to a happy and successful partnership with all our new children and families.


Mr Sam Moore- Headteacher
