Aims and Values

Colvestone Primary School is a one-form entry, mixed primary school with a nursery in the London Borough of Hackney. Our school is small and close-knit, with a warm and friendly atmosphere which you can feel the moment you walk through the gates. The school serves a socially diverse, vibrant, multicultural community. The school has a solid academic base and an exciting broad, balanced and diverse curriculum. You can see from our results page that our children make good progress and perform in line with (or often above) national standards and expectations.

The school is in partnership with The Blossom Federation. The Blossom Federation is made up of three primary schools - Daubeney, Sebright and Lauriston Schools - plus two Children's Centres, Daubeney and Sebright. Collectively, we serve over 1,200 Hackney children and families and are proud of our provision in supporting their education and development. We want to prepare children for a successful future in a real world.

We are an inclusive school, committed to ensuring that every child achieves their full potential. Our dedicated staff members know every child by name and this helps build a close and supportive community in which the children help each other as much as the teachers and other staff do.
