Welcome to Ashdon Primary School

Welcome to Ashdon Primary School, a Community school for 5-11 year olds based in Essex.

Ashdon Primary School is situated less than four miles from both Saffron Walden & Linton, at the heart of a thriving rural village community, with breakfast and after-school clubs provided to support working parents.

We hope you enjoy our website, if you have any queries please get in touch, why not watch our promotional video on YouTube by clicking on the image below!

Coronavirus / COVID-19

The school is closed until further notice, except for those children who are deemed vulnerable and those with at least one parent who is a ‘Key Worker’.

Parents and carers, Twinkl have kindly let people access their home learning resources for FREE during the school closure period. Mr Rance has taken the step to download the resources and place them in a Google Drive account for you to browse and download (that way each parent doesn’t have to set up a Twinkl account to access the resources – Twinkl have also relaxed their usual copyright restrictions to allow this).

Some resources are PDFs or PowerPoints and some are compressed files (zip files) which require software to open, e.g. 7-Zip or WinZip, to view them. There are over 500 resources available across the Primary age range. Some children will find useful activities in all 3 folders (if they like colouring, go to the EYFS folder).

Further resources from other sources will be added over time during this closure period, so please revisit this page to get additional links.
