At Coombe Road Primary School we encourage our children to become willing, independent learners through a trusting partnership between the staff, the parents and the wider community. Everybody has the right to expect a welcoming, responsive and well resourced school which is a pleasure to visit and work in. To achieve this it is essential to have the co-operation of everyone concerned.

The school will:

  • Support children to learn within a broad and balanced curriculum.
  • Encourage children to do their best at all times by promoting good relationships and a love for learning.
  • Not tolerate bullying or harassment of any kind.
  • Keep parents and carers informed about school activities.
  • Inform parents and carers about their child’s progress.
  • Be welcoming and encourage parents and carers to become involved in their child’s learning and the school community.
