Ashton Gate is a larger than average-sized primary school in Bristol. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for free school meals is below average. Those from minority ethnic groups, with English as a second language, eligible for pupil premium and with special educational needs form groups that are smaller in proportion than those seen nationally.
An HAQM assessor viewed a detailed portfolio from the school and spent a day visiting to gather evidence. A gold Quality Mark was awarded based upon the evidence of both.
