Our Governing Body

 Charlotte Darling is the Chair of Governors and can be contacted through school - Tel: 01142872100 email: enquiries@aasp.dsat.education 

The Governors and I are very proud to be part of the Aston All Saints family. We work in partnership with the teachers , parents and pupils with the aim of delivering an excellent education service in a caring Christian environment. The links with our local church of Aston All Saints Parish Church are strong , visible and greatly valued.
 
Our aim is that our school feels like a welcoming place to be from the first point of entry: friendly, approachable and enjoyable. We strive to maximise individual potential, celebrate achievement and provide high quality teaching and learning for all our children. Although our focus will always be on high standards of academic attainment, we also give priority to a rich and diverse curriculum that includes music, culture, the arts and sport.  The young people who leave our school at eleven are invariably talented, caring, sociable and confident individuals who are about to make their mark on the world.
 
We all remain committed to an outstanding future and the continuous improvement of our school for the benefit of the wonderful children we have here. We look forward to meeting you in either school or church.
