A Welcome from the Headteacher

Tahreem Hussain

I am very delighted to welcome you to our new school website! This year (more than ever) we want to celebrate the amazing contributions our pupils and staff make, as well as, support parents and engage with our local community through our website.

I am passionate about Colegrave and I simply want to provide the best possible education for our pupils, not just ensuring they are both literate and numerate, but also developing their knowledge and skills across the curriculum, through exciting and challenging learning experiences.

I am proud of the Leadership Team as they share the same passion and drive as I do, and are working relentlessly to improve standards and attainment across the school.

And in addition to our determined and dedicated staff team, we now have a number of specialist and additional teachers who work hard to deliver quality-first teaching in their areas of expertise.

Finally, I would like to say how excited I am about this year. I often tell staff and governors how confident I am that this year will be our most successful yet and I hope to continue working with parents to make our school the best of the best!

London 2012 Olympic Games

Colegrave Primary School was at the centre of the media coverage during the London 2012 Olympic Games. As well as the phenomenal opportunity for our pupils to be part of the Opening Ceremony, directed by Oscar-winning British Director Danny Boyle, we have also been visited by many sporting celebrities!

We are now working in partnership with the Olympic Legacy Development Corporation to ensure that the positive impact of the 2012 Olympic Games lasts long into the future and continues to benefit our pupils and our local community.

Resource Provision at Colegrave

Colegrave Primary School is also one of the few schools in the London Borough of Newham to have a Resource Provision for pupils with Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties (PMLD). Here our pupils receive an individualised combination of specialist and quality-first teaching and external support from a range of professionals. Most children have an inclusion programme for access to their mainstream classes.

At Colegrave Primary School, our motto is:

Loving Learning

Striving for Success

Achieving Everyday

And finally…

At Colegrave we have extraordinary, talented and ambitious children who are determined to succeed, and as a school we are committed to ensuring that each and every pupil is encouraged to reach their full potential, and given the confidence to seek out bright and successful futures.
