Welcome from the Head

I am delighted to welcome you to Coppice!

As the Head Teacher, I feel privileged to lead such an amazing school. There is something very special about Coppice, and we are incredibly proud of our unique children, supportive parents, inspirational staff and forward thinking governors. Together we work to make Coppice a safe, happy and fun place to learn. Whatever we need to do to support the children and young people in Coppice School, we will do it!

However, we cannot do this alone and we believe in forging strong relationships with our students, their families and a wide variety of support networks to make this happen. We work closely with other schools health and social care professionals, therapeutic services and the business sector to ensure we are able to meet the needs of all our students.

Our school is a busy and stimulating place for learning. Where children are nurtured and their talents are developed and celebrated. Coppice is a happy school with a loving, supportive and respectful environment and as a result our young people grow in confidence and are able to participate in a wide range of opportunities. We encourage our students to follow their interests, develop new skills and, most importantly, fully enjoy all aspects of school life.

However, to truly appreciate how special our school is, you need to walk through the doors and meet the wonderful people I have the delight in working with on a daily basis and I would welcome anyone wishing to do that.

We love it here at Coppice and hope that you will too!

Best Wishes

Natalie Swearman
Head Teacher
