Welcome to Collingwood
Our special aim is that every child in Collingwood Primary School finds and fosters at least one skill or attribute of which they can be proud.
What can we help you with?
We have 2 computer suites and a total of 100 computers including laptops and iPads. We have interactive whiteboards and data projectors in every classroom. This means that all teachers are able to use the resources of the internet in their teaching.
Our last three Ofsted reports have been very good, and in two of the three reports outstanding features were identified, most recently for pupil behaviour and safety. We have excellent teachers and support staff who are committed to helping our children be happy, learn well, and acquire a special skill which will stay with them throughout life. Our school is well known for its enrichment programme. We provide a wide range of clubs in sport, arts, crafts, music and homework, and our school curriculum uses skilled specialists for music, PE and French.
We have achieved national awards in many areas of school life, for example Arts Mark Gold, the Healthy Schools Award, Basic Skills Award, Investors in People and a Silver Languages Award. In 2010 the head was invited to Downing Street along with other Heads of schools which had achieved very well.
