Welcome to Coopers Lane


Welcome to Coopers Lane Primary School.  We are a proud London school and celebrate our great city through many aspects of our learning. All of our classes are named after London Underground stations and we even have a real tube carriage in our playground, which we are transforming into our new library!

Our website offers a wealth of information about all areas of the school, together with news posts, photo galleries and details of the provision we offer our pupils. I hope you enjoy exploring the website and finding out about our wonderful school.

Our Values

Our school’s core values are:

 Honesty, Happiness, Love, Perseverance, Respect, Responsibility and Kindness


Rights Respecting

We are a rights respecting school and have been awarded level 1 of the Unicef Rights Respecting School Award.

You can find out more information here.



Our curriculum is action packed and full of interactive and exciting learning opportunities throughout the key stages.  It is stimulating, engaging and promotes independence.

Children become explorers and detectives to find out more about the world around them and significant historical periods.  Trips and visits linked to engaging topics helps bring their learning to life.



A child’s ability to communicate is vital to all aspects of their learning, so English learning cuts across all areas of the curriculum. We also plan for literacy-specific learning every day in school, in line with the expectations of the National Curriculum.


From September 2016 our maths teaching will follow the Focus Maths scheme of work . Each exciting maths topic will be taught through the three aims of knowledge, reasoning and problem solving, differentiated to provide appropriate challenge to all children.


Through the teaching of science we encourage an interest in and an understanding of our world. There are four main areas of learning in science comprising scientific enquiry, life processes and living things, materials and their properties and physical processes.


Engaging termly topics provide the context for learning for each year group, with work planned to encompass all subjects across the curriculum. We have updated these topics for September 2016 and new topic maps can now be downloaded.
