CPD from Ashdown


Ashdown is an outreaching school, believing that sharing is caring. So we share our good practice and are keen to hear about that of others.

Below are details of the current CPD offered from our school to you or yours virtually.

Our Executive Head, Kate Owbridge, is also available in her LLE capacity to deliver these training sessions in your own school. (Please email the office for details)

There is a cost to these sessions but all proceeds go to Ashdown Primary School
