On behalf of the whole team, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the website of Cottage Grove Primary School and Nursery. We are an inclusive and diverse school that is rightly proud of every child as they all bring something special to our community. I can say with confidence that all staff champion the children in their care and have the drive and determination to make sure that there is success for all in an environment that is safe, engaging and promotes curiosity. Our values of acceptance, perseverance, respect, achievement and independence are woven into our curriculum and support the children to be set up for the next stages in their education and in their lives. The children are truly at the centre of all we do. 

I am also proud to be one of the three founding schools of the University of Portsmouth Academy Trust, which we officially joined on the 1st January 2022. This trust brings with it all the benefits of working collaboratively with other schools and a university while maintaining our own unique identiy.  Please click here to visit the UPAT website.
