My name is Mrs Bland and I would like to welcome you to our new school website. I am very proud to be able to share with you the wonderful opportunities and developments at Collingwood Primary School where I have been headteacher since January 2018.
As with the rest of the country and the world, we have been rocked by the Covid 19 pandemic. However, we remained open throughout the lock-down to provide child-care provision for key worker and vulnerable children and also offered places to children from all year groups. This stood us in good stead for our full reopening in September. Our risk assessments and newsletters are available on this website so that you can keep up to date with all events in school.
This is a large and vibrant school where children are enthusiastic and motivated to achieve. The children are at the heart of every decision we make as we strive to ensure that they are happy, confident and that the opportunities that are provided for them are relevant to their needs - both now and in the future.
Through our evolving and engaging curriculum, we ensure that children can foster a passion for learning and curiosity that will help to develop high aspirations and a lifetime of memories. We believe in ensuring that all children experience quality first teaching where individual talents can be spotted and nurtured. Collingwood has a long history of excellent outcomes for pupils and good Ofsted judgements. We ensure that all of our children make rapid progress and we provide excellent outdoor, sporting and IT facilities. Our exciting curriculum is focused on ensuring high standards and providing first-hand experiences - much has changed due to the pandemic but we are working hard to make up for lost learning and to find creative ways around the restrictions. We offer a great deal of support to our children with their work and with their social and emotional development and the care we provide for our pupils is second to none!
I hope that this new website will give you as much information as possible about our school, the staff and the many activities that our children enjoy through our aspirational curriculum. It will grow over time as we add more information, but can never replace the first-hand experience of coming to visit us. If you have any suggestions to make, or would like to see us at work, please don’t hesitate to contact us at the best school in the world!
