Goat Lees Primary School, Ashford

Welcome back!

Welcome back to Term 3 and a Happy New Year to you all. Once again we have a busy term with lots to look forward to including a visiting production of Aladdin and a wide range of clubs and activities for the children. We will be continuing to develop our school curriculum and our response to the Revised National Curriculum, further details of which you can find on our website, including the Curriculum tab and the class pages. We are particularly pleased to be working closely with the schools in our STARs Hub group and other local Ashford Schools on joint projects which can only benefit all those involved. I am delighted to report that we have a full complement of School Governors, having welcomed four new Governors since November 2015. We are also in the fortunate positon of having a very active Friends of Goat Lees group. Their amazing effort last term resulted in valuable funds being raised for the school, but most importantly ensured that our school community was able to join together for a fabulous Christmas Fair. I know that there is lots more planned for the next few months and we will continue to update our website with our news as the year progresses.
To ensure that we are able to support parents, we have added the key dates for the year to the website in order to help you plan ahead. Please click here to access these dates.
Once again, welcome back everybody.
