Our School

Five Ashes Church of England Primary School is a very small school with a warm and friendly family atmosphere. The school is set in a rural area in the village of Five Ashes drawing children from a range of socio-economic backgrounds. Our local community is a mix of both expensive and affordable family homes, social housing and a settled traveller population; our school community reflects this range.

We have 3 classes and 51 children on roll. Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 share a classroom with an EYFS HLTA employed for every morning and a number of afternoons to support the teaching of the Reception aged children.

From September 2016, we entered into a formal federation and became part of the Aspire federation with Mayfield CE Primary School led by one Executive Head with Heads of School in each school. We have since formed the Weald federation with Mark Cross CE Primary School and Frant CE Primary School where we share an two acting Executive Headteachers over the four church schools. 

The Head of School took up the post in September 2019.  All three teachers have been with the school for at least a year.

Our last inspection by Ofsted was in March 2020. Overall effectiveness was judged as “good”.  

The school was graded “Outstanding” in all areas by Anglican Church school inspectors in March 2018.

A variety of after school clubs operate (dance, pottery and sports) and the school provides a breakfast club.
