Welcome to Coniston Primary School

For Parents/carers of free school meal families,

The Winter Grant scheme aims to help meet immediate needs and really support those families who are struggling to afford food and utility bills (heating, cooking, lighting) and water for household purposes (including drinking, washing, cooking, central heating, sewerage and sanitary purposes), or other related essentials.

The financial support could include more practical items such purchase of blankets or more expensive items such as boiler / oven repairs or perhaps even a replacement oven if the existing one is broken beyond safe use / repair.

If you feel you may benefit from this service, please find below the contact numbers you need.

Parents and carers contact CAB on 03444 111 444 or the Council on 0800 953 7778 Quoting Winter Grant funding.

Coniston Primary School opened in September 1999, following the amalgamation of Coniston Infants and Junior School. We are proud of our children and believe that every child matters.

Our vision statement captures the aspirations we have for our school:

“Working together we can succeed”

This vision, and all we do in school, is underpinned by our shared values of trust, respect and pride.

We have 7 classes with children from 4-11 years old. Patchway Sure Start Children’s Centre and St Chad’s Pre School are also based on our school site providing a variety of opportunities and support for families with young children. For further information please see Quick Links below.

On behalf of the whole school community, may we welcome you to Coniston Primary School. Having visited the website, if you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us at school.
