Mission Statement

“ Our purpose is to work together to provide high quality education that develops every child to his or her full potential and equips them for life in the wider world.”

We aim to:

• provide a welcoming, safe and stimulating environment conducive to effective learning

• involve families and the community in the children’s learning and in the life of the school

• provide high quality teaching, based on high expectations of the whole school community

• provide equal opportunities for all our children and to develop their self-esteem

• provide high levels of expectations both in ourselves and the children through promoting positive self-esteem, evaluation, respect and tolerance

• ensure that our children achieve their full potential in literacy and numeracy.

• develop whole child to full potential.

• value and support the part families can play in their children’s education

• involve the school in the life of the wider community

• nurture a caring attitude and respect for others and the environment.



Children normally enter the nursery at the beginning of two school terms i.e. September and January when they become 3+ years old. Where possible it is the policy of the school to keep the age of the new entrant below 4 years.
The intake to the nursery is staggered over several days and in the half term before the child is admitted we hope each parent and child will visit the nursery and get to know the staff and become conversant with the nursery arrangements. When your child eventually begins part-time in the nursery it is extremely important that you always accompany her/him and you always make sure that there is someone to collect him/her when the nursery finishes. It is also most helpful in the early stages for a parent to stay with the child and give re-assurance and help during the settling-in period.


Children will be admitted to Reception in September 2001 and January 2002. Children born between 1 September 1996 and 29 February 1997 will be admitted in September 2001. Children born between 1 March and 31 August 1997 will be admitted in January 2002. Children will be part-time for one week.

Copthorne Primary School has an admission number of 60. Places are allocated by the LEA as we are usually oversubscribed and demand for places are high.

Parents who would like to see the school at work are asked to telephone Mrs Zaffar, who will be pleased to make an appointment to show you round the school and answer any questions you may have.

The School

Under the Bradford Re-organisation Copthorne is now a two form entry Community Primary School.

Copthorne can cater for 420 pupils from the age of 5 – 11 years and an 80 place part-time Nursery. Entry to the Nursery is by waiting list.

The present building was opened in 1986 and an extension for Years 5 and 6 was completed in October 2001.

The school is under full local management by the Governing Body. It is operated by means of a delegated budget supplied by the LEA.
