Welcome to Ayresome where everything is ‘awesome.’ We have now achieved Headstart Gold and School of Sanctuary status in 2018.


On behalf of everybody in our school community, can I welcome you to Ayresome Primary School. I hope that you will find the pages on our website useful in discovering more about our school.

Our inclusive vision for the school is one which enables all of our community to achieve, enjoy and know success. The school promotes six key values of respect, trust, tolerance, ambition, determination and excellence. These values enable our mission statement ‘It’s awesome at Ayresome’.

Ayresome has committed to the Rights Respecting School Award (RRSA) and have already achieved our Level 1. We are also a School of Sanctuary for all. We strive to ensure that the rights of children are met in everything that we do.  We look forward to gaining RRSA Level 2.

We warmly welcome visitors and prospective parents to share in our positive and inclusive British Values ethos where excellence in all that we do is our primary aim.

These values enable our mission statement ‘Its awesome at Ayresome’.

The key components of our ethos are;

Respect for everyone and everything that you do.

Trust in yourself, your abilities and those around you

Tolerance, humility and empathy for everyone 

Ambition to be the best in all that you do

Determination to achieve, no matter how small or big the dream is

Excellence in all that you do

Ayresome is delighted to have become part of the Ad Astra Academy Trust in January 2019. This is the specific academy trust link:


We look forward to working extensively with our new family of schools in Ad Astra as we work together to achieve the very best for all of our pupils and their families.
