Ethos & Values

The school motto is:

“High expectations equal high outcomes”

The vision is to:

  • To create a school community which is safe, understanding, aspirational and which values reading, and where curriculum design challenges children to succeed in life emotionally, socially and intellectually.’


In September 2021, we decided to create a set of six values which embodies school life at Ashtree. Each value is focused on in a half-term and then runs as a thread through all of our assemblies, homework and behaviours. These values are;

  • Community
  • Respect
  • Resilience
  • Empathy
  • Integrity
  • Celebrating Success

British Values

We promote British values at Ashtree School. At Ashtree School we foster these values in our children through a combination of whole school ethos and curriculum breadth; getting our children started on the journey to become responsible citizens in modern Britain.
