Coppice Valley school is a wonderful place to grow up and start the journey of education. We believe children's first experiences of learning and school should be fun, inspiring and often magical. Great relationships with teachers and staff are essential to us, in our mission to create "learners for life". We set high academic standards for all children but we also think that character building and good behaviour are really important too. Here at Coppice Valley, we make sure all children have a broad and balanced full curriculum of reading, writing and maths, science, the arts, humanities, computing, music and physical education. Into this curriculum, we weave in powerful experiences like residential visits, trips to museums, river-walks, the theatre, concerts, plays, sports and so much more! We are so fortunate to have large, beautiful grounds to learn in, so we get outside to learn and explore as much as we can, often in inventive and unique ways. The following quote from our Trust CEO sums up who we as a school perfectly. Come see for yourself!

"I have been very privileged to be invited to some tremendous events this year, there is not space here to do them justice so I will mention just one recent event that seemed to exemplify what we are about as a Trust. I was invited to watch Year 2 children at Coppice Valley Primary perform an open-air version of Midsummer Night's Dream on their school field. This did involve occasional dashes into the bushes for scene changes! However, much more importantly, one of the lead roles was taken by an awesome little girl who has the additional challenges as a performer, rather humbling to witness. It was a simply brilliant event in which these very young thespians delivered a convincing and highly entertaining version of one of Shakespeare’s most popular, but still complex, plays. Our ambition as a Trust is to deliver ‘excellence for all’ and this ambitious, challenging but inclusive performance is just the kind of thing that allows our young people to both achieve and enjoy success. An inspirational event and one of many happening all the time across our Trust thanks to the talent, commitment and imagination of our staff. I look forward to more such events next year."
