Coppice Primary School, Trinity Road, Four Oaks, Sutton Coldfield

Introduction


Our purpose built premises.

Coppice Primary School is a two form entry school in the Four Oaks area of Sutton Coldfield in Birmingham. The school has 420 children in classes from Reception to Year 6.

In September 2008 we had the privilege of moving into our new, purpose built premises that we share with Langley Special School and Little Rainbows Nursery. Coppice and Langley are two separate schools that work together to improve the opportunities for all the children on the site.

We really are situated in a Coppice, with the playgrounds bordered by wooded trees that the children enjoy learning in as part of the learning environment.

The move into the new premises was followed by the development of the outside area to include an all weather playground/sports pitch, climbing and play equipment and an outdoor 'classroom' especially for our Reception children. This continues to be developed.

Statement of Ethos and Values

We believe that it is our responsibility to enable children to become independent and confident.

Our aim is that all pupils at Coppice Primary school develop the skills necessary to become life long learners. They will learn to value themselves and others. They will be inspired and enthused by the challenges we present to them and feel secure and supported enough to try new and difficult experiences. School should be fun; not about acquiring information for the sake of it but about opening doors and visualising new possibilities.

We believe that pupils at Coppice have the right to an education which is inclusive and allows all to realise their potential.

In partnership with parents we can make school a happy and enjoyable experience. Pupils should feel safe, challenged and able to meet that challenge. School should provide access to a broad and balanced curriculum, both academic and social. Pupils should experience new and varied challenges and look to meet them with the support of their peers.

It is our role, as educators, to enable pupils to envisage the boundless possibilities that lie before them and to enable them to strive to achieve.
