Play, Laugh and Learn – Redevelopment of our Outdoor Space

We are looking to create an improved outside space for our children. We want to develop our field to make it multi-purpose and multi-functional to cater for all of our children. Cheryl, the owner of “Home of Gardens” has volunteered her time and drawn up landscape plans for our garden. Now we need to bring those plans to life, to create an outdoor space designed for outdoor learning.

Fire Engine Visit

It is always a good day when you have a visit from a fire engine. Green Watch from West Bridgford came in on Tuesday 14th and all three primary classes and class 7 had the chance to meet the fire personnel and explore the fire engine. Thank you Green Watch for the time you were able to spare with us.

Ladies Charity Football May 2019

On Sunday 12th May Ash Lea staff and friends took part in the 4th annual Ash Lea Ladies versus Sherwood Ladies football match.

Our team were supported by some amazing mascots; parents, family and friends.

The sun shone down for the whole event which ended with Sherwood Ladies winning 4 – 2

With refreshments, raffle and team fees the event raised over £1200!

The monies will be divided between a community defibrillator which school are buying and the newly planned outdoor learning area.

A huge thank you to all who took part and to Rebecca Walker for organising the event.

School of Rock Performance

I can not tell you how proud I am of all the pupils and staff for their work on our performance of School of Rock. Post 16 students who directed, produced and wrote some of the songs for the show have been amazing. All the pupils were stars in their own right and showed us there is no limit to what they can achieve.

Thank you to all the parents, carers, families and guests for being a wonderful audience and joining in all the singing, clapping and dancing.

We will be having a little rest now before thinking about next year…

Litter Pick

On Friday 26th April a group of pupils from school joined Cotgrave Town Council at the leisure centre to do a litter pick. The pupils were provided with all the correct equipment and enthusiastically search for bottles, cans and sweet wrappers. They were all amazing and soon cleared a large area. This was part of larger project which involved the other two schools from Cotgrave.
