It gives me great pleasure to write to you as the Headteacher of Ashton St. Peter’s Primary School.
Ashton St Peter’s is now a ‘Good’ school with ‘Outstanding’ features and all our children are flourishing as individuals and academics.
Previous to my headship here, I was a teacher for eleven years. In my previous most recent post, I was the Assistant Headteacher and had been a member of the Senior Leadership Team for 5 years, at Aston St. Mary’s CoE Primary School. I was proud to be part of a team that turned this school from a ‘Good’ School to an ’Outstanding’ School and consistently achieved outstanding results in the top 10% of schools in Hertfordshire. Prior to working at Aston St. Mary’s, I worked at Wilshere-Dacre Junior School in Hitchin and was fortunate enough to work with a variety of Headteachers and an Executive Headteachers in this school. I have taught in every year group in some capacity and intend to get into the classrooms as much as I can at Ashton St. Peter’s. Through spending time in each class, I will get to know the children well and this ‘hands on’ experience will allow me to clearly understand how the heart of this school functions and how I can best lead the school.
I would like to thank parents and staff for supporting us on this journey so far and am excited for the future of the school.
I am always happy to hear your thoughts and ideas and I look forward to working in close partnership with you.
Mr. David Bower
