Coppice Primary School is a two form entry school in the Four Oaks area of Sutton Coldfield in Birmingham. The school has 420 children in classes from Reception to Year 6.

We are a founder member of the Learning Trust for Excellence (a group of 9 local schools) where we share the benefits of working collectively whilst retaining personal autonomy and we are also a member of the Sutton Coldfield Consortium.

In September 2008 we had the privilege of moving into our new, purpose built premises that we share with Langley Special School and Little Rainbows Nursery. Coppice and Langley are two separate schools that work together to improve the opportunities for all the children on the site.

We really are situated in a Coppice, with the playgrounds bordered by wooded trees that the children enjoy learning in as part of the learning environment.

The move into the new premises was followed by the development of the outside area to include an all weather playground/sports pitch, climbing and play equipment and an outdoor 'classroom' especially for our Reception children. This continues to be developed.
