Goat Lees Primary School, Ashford

Welcome back!

We hope you all had a lovely half term holiday and that for some, you enjoyed your first term at Goat Lees Primary School.
It is hard to believe that we are now in our third year as it has passed so quickly and our original Billy Class are now settled in Year 2! This is a timely reminder that we must make the most of the time that we have in primary school and ensure that our children have the best possible start in their education. We look forward to working with our families to support all our children and we hope that you will join us at the many events that we will hold over the forthcoming terms. Last term, we had a very successful 'Monster Ball' which was extremely well attended by all sorts of monsters! We have also helped to raise money for Children in Need by dressing up as 'Superheros.' We are very proud of the fact that we raised £225, including £47 from the Cake Sale after school. For a small school we think this is amazing and we would like to thank everyone who contributed towards this. Of course this term, we will all start to get excited for Christmas with many different events happening in school including the Christmas fair, Market and the Christmas performances put on by the children. 
For those of you who are looking for places in Reception next year, please click here for our open day dates where we'll be happy to show you around our school.
2015-2016 will be another busy and exciting year and there is a lot to look forward to. 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.
