Living and Learning Together


Message from the Headteacher

A warm welcome to Colindale School – a very special community – a place where we believe that our core purpose is to develop lifelong learners and transform lives.

We all work hard to provide a safe, happy and responsible environment in which everyone can learn, flourish, reach their potential, and be valued as an individual.

Our school is a place where we share and celebrate our cultures, languages and faiths in harmony with each other.  We have children from many different cultures speaking over 40 different languages.

When children leave Colindale School I want them to do so with confidence and with an awareness and understanding of the world so that they can work positively towards a better future for all.

To achieve this for our children staff work closely in partnership, offering support and challenge to each other. We also work closely with Parents and Carers.  Throughout the year there are regular meetings with parents to exchange information.  There are also other opportunities such as sports days and assemblies for them to be involved in their child’s education.  We want to make the most of these opportunities to build good relationships and partnerships between parents and the school.

Please come and see for yourself what Colindale Primary School has to offer children.  Like other visitors you will notice the warmth, the calm working atmosphere, the skilled teaching designed to meet the needs of every individual child and the friendly confidence of the children as they learn in a stimulating and caring environment.

I look forward to meeting you.
