village school.

Plaque at Asby Endowed School
Plaque at Asby Endowed School
The school continues to be a welcoming school that serves the local community well. You have created strong relationships with the small number of families whose children attend the school.
Parents and carers speak very highly of the school. Parents said that the small size of the school and the family atmosphere are the defining factors in why they chose to send their children here. They really appreciate that you know every pupil well. They said that the pupils behave well and that they are safe in school. Every parent who responded to Parent View, Ofsted’s online questionnaire, said that they would recommend this school.

As the plaque on the wall indicates there has been a school on this site for
several centuries, but clearly it is not living in the past!
Our local primary school is home to around 16 pupils, in two classes.

ATG Activities

We will be working with local landowners to identify small areas of land that can be used to plant trees or hedges. Occasional requests will go out to members, seeking volunteers to survey areas of land to assess the age and health of trees and to identify possible planting areas, as well as to take part in planting trees and hedges. These activities will normally be scheduled to last for no more than three hours.

The Tree Group has insurance to cover members carrying out these activities.

COVID Policy (Feb.2022)

Unfortunately Covid-19 has not gone away, and we still want everyone to feel safe whilst being able to enjoy the film.

  • We use ‘cabaret-style’ seating around suitably spaced tables.
  • We recommend that you continue to wear a face covering when moving around the village hall, though this may be removed whilst you are seated.
  • It would also be appreciated if you could complete an antigen (lateral flow) test before attending.  (We are more than happy to refund your ticket should your test unfortunately prove positive.)
