Anti-bullying

Anti-bullying

Through our culture and ethos we work very hard to produce an environment that is supportive and where everyone feels safe. However, we realise that bullying does take place. We are ever-vigilant and will respond swiftly, carefully and thoroughly to address any issue that comes to light.  We have a well-developed anti—bullying policy which the school will follow when bullying incidents occur. If you have any concern whatsoever that your child or any child might be at risk of bullying please contact the appropriate safegaurding leads:

We believe that Ashcroft High School should serve the needs of the children in our local community and those outside our catchment area who choose to come here. Students are admitted without reference to ability or aptitude up to the planned admission number of 234.The school operates an equal preference system which means applications will be considered according to set criteria regardless of any indicated preference ranking.
