We welcome and encourage any parent who would like to be actively involved in school life. You could be a governor or Friend of Ambler, come to the school to talk to the children about your job, hobby or culture or simply attend one of our regular coffee mornings.
If you would like to become involved call the school office 020 7226 4708.
Ambler is currently able to offer all children from Nursery to Year 6 a free school dinner, through Islington funding. To receive a free meal you must complete a form available from the School Office, annually.
“Leaders ensure that pupils have access to high-quality texts through their reading sessions. Year 6 read ‘Great Expectations’ by Charles Dickens, while in Year 5 pupils study ‘Macbeth’. This produced excellent writing responses. Pupils used a variety of challenging vocabulary confidently in their writing pieces, for example when describing how Lady Macbeth was ‘pouring scorn’ on another character. Owing to the high-quality grammar teaching across the school, pupils develop their writing skills extremely well. Consequently, pupils’ progress in writing is strong.”

Good attendance and punctuality is important if children are to get the most out of their education. Children who are late miss out on important work at the start of the school day. Children who miss a lot of school obviously miss lessons and therefore do not make progress that they should.
Our target is 98% attendance.
