In Comber Primary we aim to provide a caring and controlled environment in which pupils have the opportunity to develop to their full potential.  Each child is recognised as an individual, with individual needs which will be met and built upon.  Cooperation between home and school is an essential ingredient for success and members of staff are always willing to discuss any problems or difficulties which may arise.
