At Painters Ash Primary school we nurture the individual characters of all our pupils so that they become caring citizens who make a positive contribution to their community.

The team at Painters Ash support pupils to grow academically and emotionally so that they are confident, independent individuals who take responsibility for their own learning. All staff at Painters Ash aim for all children to succeed and to reach their full potential. We invest time in celebrating the success of all children in our care.


Our school values are: Community, Success, Excellence, Self-confidence and Determination.

Care and respect must be the basis of all our relationships. It must begin with ourselves but also between children. We should respect others’ property and celebrate each other’s differences. We strive to create a sense of community and belonging through working together. We encourage school and parents to work in partnership to support every child and we welcome involvement from the wider community.

Everyone at Painters Ash is encouraged to aim high and reach their full potential. We sow the seeds, nurture the growth and celebrate the success of all individuals.

We aim to provide a curriculum that cultivates a love of learning by all. We want everyone to fulfil their potential in every way. We aim to develop independent thinkers who take ownership of their learning; have the courage to make decisions, and know when to seek advice and take it on board. Creativity is a thread running through all we do. We strive to nurture happy, creative learners.
