A Welcome Message from our Head Teacher – Mrs Ruth Vayro MA. NPQH.
Welcome to St Ambrose Primary School, which is quite simply a great school.
We are a vibrant, multicultural and multi-faith community with a strong commitment to developing each precious and unique child.
The 21st century demands so much of our young people. At St Ambrose, we do things a little differently and offer a different course - an education for head, heart and hand; we believe that knowledge, questioning and communicating come together as the basis of a great education.
An academic education (head) that gives our children in-depth subject knowledge of key concepts and ways of thinking.
A character education (heart) from which young people can develop a set of ethical underpinnings, well-honed character traits of resilience, kindness and tolerance and a subtle open mind.
A can-do education (hand) that nurtures creativity and problem solving, applying knowledge and conceptual understanding to new situations. We encourage at every age the development of pupils' voices and ultimately produce advocates for change in a modern and challenging world.
This approach creates a happy, constructive and positive place for our children to grow and flourish. We are proud of our values of fairness, dignity, equality and inclusivity and have recently been granted the UNICEF Rights Respecting Gold Award.
I hope this website provides a flavour of the very high standards in attainment, curriculum, teaching and provision your child can receive at St Ambrose.
If any parent wishes a paper copy of any document, let the office know as they are free of charge.
Come and see what we are and what we do! Let's have another brilliant year.
