Goat Lees Primary School, Ashford

We would like to welcome everyone who will be returning to us, or joining us for the first time to our school. As we begin Term 1, we look forward to seeing faces old and new and to hearing all about what everyone has been up to over the last few weeks. We know that there are some very excited children who cannot wait to join Billy Class and there will be some very proud parents coming through our school gates. We are growing at Goat Lees and now have six classes in our school so we are delighted to add Alpine and Kinder Classes to our herd! With that, we would like to welcome Miss Wood, Mrs Cooper and Mrs Smith to our teaching team.

We are also already preparing ourselves to welcome any parents and children who are thinking about joining us next September 2015. We would like to invite you to come and meet us all and have a look around our school. Please click here for available dates.

This will be another busy and exciting year for us all and there will be lots to look forward to. To ensure that we are able to support parents, we have added the key dates for the year to the calendar on the website in order to help you plan ahead. Please also follow this link for a copy of key dates. We will try our best to keep to these dates, but occasionally changes might occur. If this happens we will let you know as soon as possible via the newsletters or through the website.

Once again, welcome back everybody!
