Our Vision


Our vision at Combe is that all children will QUESTION, EXPLORE and CHALLENGE themselves and the world around them. They will discover CREATIVE solutions for happiness and success for themselves and the world in which they live whilst fostering strong moral and spiritual values.


We aim to create within a Christian framework a safe, caring and respectful environment where everyone develops a sense of responsibility, self-reliance and feels true friendship. We celebrate aspiration, enquiring minds, high expectations, tolerance and respect for others. We encourage each member of our school community – children, teachers, parents, and governors – to do the right thing, be honest, trusting and open-minded, learn from mistakes and persevere to fulfil their potential.

  • provide all children with a broad and balanced curriculum which will enable all pupils to grow intellectually, creatively, physically, emotionally spiritually and socially;
