Welcome to new parents/children!

As we are unable to welcome parents/carers and children to our site for Open Days this year, our Senior Leadership Team have been working very hard to put together a video for you, to showcase what makes our school so very special!  We hope you enjoy it. 

You may also be interested in the Welcome video Mrs Gascoigne, our Headteacher, made for the families who joined us in September 2020:

We were very excited to welcome the new pupils/parents/carers who joined us in September 2020!

September 2020:
Below are three videos we created all about how we teach Phonics at Combe Down Primary School.  The slideshow in the first video can be accessed below:

July 2020:

Mrs Gascoigne (our Headteacher) and other members of the Senior Leadership Team have been hard at work filming videos around the school site, as our new starters are not able to come and visit us for settling-in sessions as they usually would. 

We will shortly be sending our new parents/carers a letter introducing ourselves, and you can read our Induction Booklet (link on the left of this page), which we hope will answer any questions you have about joining our school. 

If you have any queries once you've watched the videos and read the booklet, please do not hesitate to contact our Early Years Lead, Mr Wainer:
