'Tell the truth & show respect. Think of others & try our best.'

Where children learn, achieve and enjoy success

On behalf of the children, parents, staff and governors, I would like to welcome you to Old Heath Community Primary School and to our website. Our school is located on the outskirts of Colchester town centre at the junction of Old Heath and Abbots Road (CO2 8DD).

In December we had our Ofsted Inspection. The inspection covered two days, 2nd & 3rd December. We continue to maintain our ‘Good’ grading and the full report for our inspection can be read here.

This is the opening paragraph of our report which we are very proud of……

‘Pupils enjoy being part of this happy, hard-working school community. Pupils care about each other. They get on well with staff. Pupils and their parents told the inspector that the
school is a caring and welcoming place. Pupils are keen to uphold the school’s mantra of
‘tell the truth and show respect, think of others and try our best’. Pupils behave well. They follow the school rules. Pupils want to learn, and they work hard.’


Amanda Mitchelson, Headteacher
