My name is Sarah White and I am the Headteacher here. I started as the Headteacher in September 2013 and feel very fortunate to be able to lead such an amazing school. We are a team of dedicated and committed staff who always put the needs of our children before anything. We strive to always do our best and we love coming to work. Those of you who know Coates Lane will know that we are a community of friendly people who work hard and enjoy our jobs. We want to inspire and challenge everybody to reach their potential. Coates Lane Primary is a place to build friendships and develop skills for lifelong learning. When our pupils leave at the end of year 6 we always hope to send them off being ready for not only High School but with skills to use for the rest of their life!


Please take a look around our website at the wonderful world of Coates Lane Primary School.





Inspiring and challenging everybody to reach their potential, within a fun and supportive community.


Coates Lane Primary School is committed to safeguarding and

promoting the welfare of children and young people.
