SCHOOL ANNOUNCEMENTS 20/09/2017

Welcome to Collingwood Primary School

On behalf of the staff and governors of Collingwood Primary School, I would like to take this opportunity 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  believe in treating children as individuals, nurturing their talents and interests, and supporting them to build successful relationships and to achieve his or her true potential. We believe that learning is for life and is not confined just to school and that this should be fun!  We were 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 pdf Collingwood Primary School Ofsted Report April 2016

Our prospectus will give you a good 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. will be happy to discuss any individual needs your child may have.  I would be delighted to talk to you about the work of our school.  Please do contact Mrs Wraight or Mrs De’Ath in our school  office  on 01245 322258 if you have any queries or would like to come and see the school at work . You will be made very welcome by our pupils and staff!  Mrs A Buckland-Garnett
