Forced Marriage

A forced marriage is a marriage where one or both people do not (or in the case of some people with learning disabilities, cannot) consent to the marriage and pressure or abuse is used. An arranged marriage is not the same as a forced marriage. In an arranged marriage, the families take a leading role in choosing the marriage partner, but the choice of whether to enter the marriage is left to both people. A marriage must be entered into with the full and free consent of both people. Everyone involved should feel that they have a choice.

Headteacher’s Message

The Headteacher provides outstanding leadership through high expectations for achievement and behaviour, a clear vision for school development and highly effective arrangements for developing teaching

As Ashcroft High School’s Headteacher I am fortunate to be part of the Ashcroft Family, a community of committed and talented staff, students and governors.

In October 2013, the school was judged as a good, with “outstanding” leadership and management.

The whole of the school community is immensely proud of this achievement as it recognises the hard work of out staff and governors, the unique qualities of our students, and the support of their parents.

I am also proud of our new school building, which includes modern classrooms, a theatre, a cafe and youth community facilities. Our smart, new school uniform is a visual symbol of Ashcroft’s high standards.

I have very high expectations of myself, of staff, students, parents and governors. I am proud of the way in which we constantly work together as members of the Ashcroft family to improve our school. That is the “Ashcroft Way”.

The school continues to improve due to our shared determination to achieve excellence.

I would welcome the opportunity to show you why I am so proud to belong to the Ashcroft family, and encourage you to join us.

Ms. Austin

Headteacher
