Congratulations for excellent attendance!
Congratulations to over 140 pupils at Aston Tower who came to school every day last term and so achieved 100% attendance. As a reward they were given a book and a certificate to mark this great achievement. As there were so many children, we were unable to get them all in this picture and so we have taken a photograph of all the attendance winners from the three best attending classes of the week.
Shabana Mahmood, MP, meets with School Council
School councillors interviewed local MP, Shabana Mahmood about her work as part of their learning about the importance of democracy. Shabana commented that their questions made her think really hard! She felt that they asked very thoughtful questions. Shabana talked about the importance of school and said that it ‘helps you find your uniqueness’, ‘is to be fun and helps you become special’. School Council agrees with that view and we feel that this is what our amazing school does every day.
School Council at the Council House
Later that day, School Council met the Lord Mayor and had a tour of the Council House and visited the Council Chambers where councillors vote democratically to make decisions.
Congratulations . . .
All the children that took part in the nominations were an absolute credit to themselves, the school and their classes.
The speeches were fantastic; who knows there may be a future prime minister amongst our pupils!
We now have our school council representatives for this year. Congratulations to the following children, we know that they will do a fantastic job.

Head Teacher's Message.
Welcome to our website! We hope it will give you an exciting flavour of our school. At Aston Tower we achieve excellence- this is our mission statement- a message that our pupils wear on their uniform underneath their school badge. Excellence is a feature of our school and something we seek to achieve in everything we do. For example, inspectors said that the behaviour of our pupils and the way we promote their safety is outstanding. So much of our teaching is outstanding too. We want our pupils to achieve excellence in all areas of school life to help them lead successful lives as adults.
Our school draws pupils from many different heritage and faith groups. We are proud of our differences and the way we live and work together as a harmonious school community. As a community school we are at the heart of the area in which we serve. We are proud of our many local partners who help us make a big difference to our pupils’ lives.
