Welcome to our school
Maddy Kent, Headteacher
Dear parents, carers and friends of Colston’s Primary School
I would like to extend a warm welcome to all the children, their parents and carers, families, friends and members of the local community who are central to the life of Colston’s Primary School. Our whole school community abides by our mission statement ‘Celebrating diversity, learning together’ and our core values of: Learning, Making safe and healthy choices, Listening and communicating, Doing our best, Respect and Kindness which make our school a happy and harmonious place to learn and work.
In September 2012 Colston’s converted to academy status and we are now working towards becoming a Co-operative Academy. This involves the whole school community adopting the co-operative values of: Self-responsibility, Equity, Democracy, Self-responsibility, Equality and Solidarity. Becoming a co-operative academy also means strengthening our ties with the local community by its increased involvement in our governance.
I became head of Colston’s in January 2011 and so have recent experience of it is being a welcoming, happy school where people are helpful, considerate and respectful of each other. Relationships and attitudes are positive and an environment exists in which working and learning becomes an enjoyable and fulfilling experience for all. I feel privileged to be the headteacher of a school which is truly unique and which has such a strong involvement with its community.
There will be an open meeting of the Forum on Tuesday 14th May at 7.15 pm. Maddy Kent will be discussing the school's homework policy and seeking parent's views.

Day to Make a Difference
During the mid term break eight volunteers from Lloyds Banking Group came to help spruce up our playground as part of its 'Day to Make A Difference' program. They cut back overgrown bushes, planted spring bulbs around our adventure playground and painted our storage sheds and planters. The school would like to thank them for their help, and Louisa Kirkham, one of our school governors, for organising it.
