​​​

​​2017-18 Upgrade & Modernisation PROJECT

We are modernising the school where conditions don’t meet current standards. This includes upgrading general classrooms and facilities in poor condition.


 

ROUND 3 Inclusive Schools Fund project

Ashby Primary School will use the Round 3 of the Inclusive Schools Fund grant to develop a variety of outdoor spaces specifically designed to offer stimulating sensory experiences for students of all abilities. The school is creating an outdoor sensory and re-engagement space which will include a playground, kitchen garden, an outdoor classroom and cubbyhouse as well as an artificial turf area.

The designs will complement the existing sensory area, and have been developed after consulting the wider school community.​ As the project is school led, milestones are reliant on the needs and schedule of the school.
