Coombe Road Primary School is a GOOD school (Ofsted 2017)
Welcome from the Headteacher
On behalf of the children, staff and governors, I am so proud to welcome you to Coombe Road Primary School. We are committed to providing an excellent learning experience within an inclusive culture of pastoral support and care: an experience built on the foundations of strong relationships, where everyone is valued.
As a one-form entry school at the heart of our community, there is a real ‘family feel’ to our school and the fact that all of our staff knows and understands the needs of all of our children is a true strength of the school. As a result, here at Coombe Road every child is given the opportunity to thrive as we remove barriers to learning, ensuring that all of our children make excellent progress and achieve as highly as possible.
We can only do this when we all work in partnership and as a diverse and welcoming school community, our doors are always open for any child, parent or carer who needs support or advice. Our staff are highly dedicated, approachable and want our children to succeed – our children deserve the best.
We aim to develop confident, successful and responsible children who are able to take ownership of their learning and become increasingly independent as they grow older. Through our values, we teach our children to be committed, seek opportunities, respect one another and demonstrate excellence in all that they do. As demonstrated by our curriculum, we also have a strong belief in high levels of aspiration and want to give all our children broad experiences to enrich their learning and to equip them with the cultural capital to shape their future and lead successful lives.
Our website only gives a glimpse of what our school is like, so I look forward to welcoming you through our gates to meet everyone and see for yourself.
Broadening Horizons, Raising Aspirations
WHAT OUR FAMILIES SAY:
~ “We are very happy with our child’s both academic and emotional growth since she started at Coombe Road School. She has loved her learning journey since day 1, we credit all the staff for being so caring and creating a family atmosphere that makes the kids and parents feel at home. The leadership is fantastic. We would highly recommend the school. Thank you and keep up the good work.”
~ “Amazing school with great family vibe. Teachers are caring and always trying to get the best of every child. What amazes me is that, no matter what year, all staff know every child by name and when kids are moving grades they already know the teacher!”
~ “After a disheartening start in a larger school across town, my daughter was welcomed with open arms at Coombe Road and I have been amazed at the difference a close-knit school community can make. My daughter has improved greatly in all aspects of the curriculum, as well as her emotional and social wellbeing and she loves coming to school!”
~ “All the teachers and staff at Coombe Road Primary have been fantastic during the 4 years my daughter has been there. Always kind and supportive and they have worked very hard to ensure that the school is a safe environment during the COVID pandemic. Most importantly my daughter enjoys going to school and has made good progress with her learning and social skills.”
~ “I have been going to this school for years now! My first is now in secondary school! Everyone who works at this school are wonderful, happy people that make the children go away with a smile - and the conversation we have in the car on what a fun day they have had.... I had a lot of support and help in the past and everyone is on top of what's going on around them. Such a well-managed school. Coombe Road is a lovely school....”
~ “Coombe Road Primary excels at being an inclusive, diverse and child-centred school. Our daughter had the best possible start to reception due to the care, attention and creative learning staff provide. The school’s leadership team are visible, engaging and clearly know each child. Moreover, the whole staff team constantly show that they value each child as an individual, and as a result this ‘family feel’ enables the children to be happy, safe and learning. This is a fantastic school.”
~ “Over the last seven years, it is apparent that the children are clearly their first priority. All the staff are fantastic. They always deal with any queries that I might have quickly and professionally. All the staff will go above and beyond their job role to make sure my children are receiving the best education and support. Sending my child to school during lockdown was hard but the staff that remained in school made me feel a little better, always smiling and asking how I was, and some days offering emotional support. All the safety measures they have in place are second to none I have no doubt of the safety of my child. Thank you everyone at Coombe Road.”
~ “My children have come on leaps and bounds since attending Coombe Road Primary, I find the teachers and all staff cheery and approachable with anything you may need to discuss. They have been top notch with my children's additional needs and extremely supportive with putting things into place for them. I would recommend the school to anyone who asked. Thank you for all your hard work.”
~ “Coombe Road Primary School has the most caring and supportive adults looking after our children. Thank you for making our daughter’s transition from nursery to ‘big school’ happen so smoothly, as a family we could not be happier. The hard work you all do shows on our children’s faces, they have the biggest smiles. Thank you for all your support, you are all truly amazing.”
