Welcome to Coppice; a vibrant, happy, two form entry primary school with a nursery on the borders of Hainault and Chigwell in the north east corner of the London Borough of Redbridge. Our school was originally built in 1952 and is set within well maintained grounds offering a field, grass, playgrounds, gardens and specialist teaching buildings. We are a successful school having attained Ofsted “Good” in December 2011.  


The staff and governors of our school are committed to providing the very best learning opportunities for your child in a safe, secure and friendly community environment.  We have high expectations of our children and expect them to aim high and achieve their best academically and socially.


Our curriculum reflects our passion for learning and enjoyment, ensuring that all children receive high quality learning opportunities in English and Mathematics and that expertise in primary teaching and learning is nurtured and grown in all subject areas.  Resident specialists in Art, Music and PE offer Coppice children the opportunity to achieve their full potential in the full range of the primary curriculum whilst additional teaching staff for Maths and English enable us to teach children in KS2 in optimum class sizes of 15-20 children. We are very well resourced with our Learning Lab housing a computer suite, science lab and Art studio as well as two additional classrooms used for English and Maths. 


Our slogan, “Aspire, Believe, Achieve” is reflected in all that we do at Coppice, through our engaging and exciting curriculum.  Trips, visits and visitors to the classroom all serve to enrich, develop and excite children’s learning across the curriculum and apply their knowledge in different ways. During their time at Coppice, your child will have the opportunity to learn French, learn to swim, learn to play a musical instrument and visit many places of interest.


We want all our children to go onto secondary school ready to further develop their lifelong love of learning, with a solid foundation in the core skills enabling them to build upon these skills and become confident, successful, responsible citizens of the world.


We hope the website gives you a “flavour” of our school as well as providing regular updated information for thewhole school community and the wider audience. 


If you would like to find out more, we are always pleased to welcome visitors so please make an appointment at the school’s main office should you wish to come and visit.
