On behalf of the staff and governors of Collingwood Primary School, I would like to extend a very warm welcome to you and thank you for viewing our website. We are confident that we provide an experience that will well equip your child through those first important years of their education. Our staff are passionate about treating children as individuals, nurturing their interests, and supporting them in building successful relationships and achieving their true potential. We believe that learning is for life, is not confined just to school and that this should be fun!
We were last inspected by Ofsted in April 2016. The report states: “The school’s provision for the welfare of pupils and the promotion of their well-being and safety is outstanding. As a result pupils feel extremely safe and happy at school.” and “The school does all it can to keep pupils safe at all times.” “Pupil’s behaviour in lessons, in the playground and throughout the school is good. Sometimes it is outstanding.” “Pupils make at least good and sometimes outstanding progress” “Outstanding Leadership of the Early Years provision has resulted in excellent support for teachers in training and very strong links with parents to promote children’s learning and well-being,” and that, “strong teamwork ensures that children are fully engaged in learning.” “Leadership of teaching is strong,” and “Leaders have created an environment where pupils flourish.” The full report can be found here Collingwood Primary School Ofsted Report April 2016
Our prospectus will give you an idea of what our school is like however, it cannot be as informative as visiting yourself. Mrs Minister, our Deputy Head and S.E.N.C.O. and I would be delighted to talk to you about our school. Please contact Mrs Wraight or Mrs De’Ath in our school office on 01245 322258 if you would like to see the school in action. You will be made very welcome by our pupils and staff! Mrs A Buckland-Garnett
