Astbury St Mary’s C of E Primary School

Astbury St Mary’s CofE Primary School

On 1st February, Astbury St Mary’s CE Primary School joined the Chester Diocesan Academies Trust (CDAT) Family. As a church school, Astbury St Mary’s has already been working closely with CDAT schools and were delighted to officially convert into the Trust at the start of February. The collaboration between CDAT schools will provide great opportunities for staff and children to come together. Staff will share good practice across the Trust  to impact teaching and learning and children will have access to wider curricular and extra curricular activities. The shared Christian values across the Trust closely match the values of the school and the CDAT Board are delighted to welcome Astbury St Mary’s into the Trust and look forward to working with Pip Worswick, the headteacher, and all of the staff, governors and children.

This new exciting chapter opens in my journey with Astbury School. A journey that began twenty-one years ago when I started teaching in the infant class. Since that very first day, my heart has been drawn to serving the children, families and community who are the life of the school. Upon my appointment as Head teacher, in January 2016, I started to build a strong governing team to challenge and support the school in its actions and developed leadership across all levels of the school. This brought renewed vision and strategic direction to set the pathway to planning for excellence and my staff embarked on a rigorous and enriching training plan, giving them the tools that they needed to deliver outstanding teaching in a nurturing environment.
