Message from the Headteacher

Alison (Aly) Atkins

Welcome to our wonderful school!

Some of our children will spend just a short time here as they transfer from other schools; for many others, 8 years at The Coombes will be the longest single period of their school education. In that time, they may have arrived as toddlers and will leave well prepared for their secondary school, both academically and as a responsible person with an appetite for the challenges and opportunities that lay ahead.

My colleagues and the children understand the importance of learning and we are ambitious for our children to reach their full potential so that they are well placed to achieve in their next school. In many ways their primary education at The Coombes is a foundation for the independence they will need at 11 years of age. Our aim is to nurture the whole child so we will work to develop their spiritual, artistic and musical as well as academic potential.

We are a school that is mindful of the natural development of children; whilst we are clear we have a duty to prepare children for the time they leave at age 11, we recognise it is important to embrace and enjoy everything at its right time. Children have a natural compulsion to find out and investigate for themselves; our curriculum will meet this need by providing a practical, hands-on approach to learning.

There is no such thing as other people's children.

Our relationship with families is strong and parents come into school every day to work with our team. We see this as a partnership and we are committed to this principle. I would like to invite you to come and meet us here at The Coombes to see all of this for yourself. You are likely to be struck by the calmness and sense of purpose that pervades all that we do.

I look forward to meeting you.

Best wishes,
