Welcome to our school website.

The Coppice is a school that first and foremost cares, having an enduring reputation for being a warm and welcoming place which is often commented on by visitors.

We try our utmost to consider the children at all times, keeping ourselves ‘child focused’; which was in the forefront of our minds when, some years ago, the whole school community (including children, parents, staff and governors) came together to craft Our Vision Statement of Happy, Confident and Successful Learners; Well Prepared for life. 

With our caring ethos, we instil associated values within our children; a tangible example of this being that, on interschool events, there is a commonly held opinion across the district that Coppice children exhibit good sportsmanship, and our children’s behaviour and attitude are positively commented on by visitors, cover teachers and staff at educational visit venues.

The Coppice has a brilliant staff that work hard to ensure the delivery of a broad and balanced education for our children; having an exemplary record of providing opportunities and stretching children in areas beyond just the academic.

In the final analysis, we are judged by our academic standards. I am proud of our academic record over many years that has paved the way for excellent judgement of the school by Ofsted.

I hope you find our website useful and informative.
