Welcome to combeschool.com
This is the Church of England primary school’s resource site based in Combe and surrounding areas.
The right place
Whether you have a child who lives in Combe or a child who lives in Britain, it doesn’t really matter. If you want the very best Church of England primary school education for your children, you have come to the right place. This website enables parents to make truly informed decisions regarding the educational choices for their children.
As you can well imagine, one of the most important inputs you can put into your kid’s life is his or her school environment. Studies have shown that there is a strong link between the quality of initial primary school education and life achievement.
Price not equals to quality
Don't Spend a lot
If you want your kids to live up to their fullest potential, you don’t necessarily have to spend a lot of money. That is one common myth regarding primary school education quality. Price does not necessarily equate with high quality.
Now, a lot of primary school promoters would love you to think this way. A lot of people would like you to confuse pricing with quality and value. Luckily, this doesn’t not have to be the case. They are not joined at the hip. There is no iron law interlocking the amount of pound or euros or dollars you pay for your child’s education and the quality of such an education.
It all boils down to the values of the school. It also is a reflection of what the school’s ultimate focus is. Keep these primarily in mind and you increase the likelihood of finding the very best school and environment for your children.
This resource site lists out all sorts of preschool and primary school materials that would enable you to make a truly informed decision. The big challenge for many parents looking to make the right call as far as their kid’s educational options are concerned has more to do with the abundance of choice, it’s not the other way around.
High quality educational institutions
If you were to ask around, a lot of parents are under the mistaken assumption that there’s really not that many quality schools out there. Whether we’re talking about primary school or secondary school, most parents in England as well as the surrounding areas are under the impression that high quality educational institutions are few and far between.
This is a fallacy. This is not true. In fact, there are a lot of them and the big challenge is learning to tell them apart.
While the graduation rates of many of these institutions are quite similar, you need to go beyond the numbers. It’s too easy to adopt an attitude where, if certain institutions have certain qualities, that they are essentially interchangeable.
This is a one way ticket to educational disappointment at some point in time. It may well turn out that you have bought a basket of goods that was either mislabeled or misrepresented or somehow hyped up and made to appear like something that it’s not.
If you don’t want to put yourself in that sorry situation and, most importantly, you don’t want to jeopardize the educational prospects of your children, you need to have the right focus.
Adopting the Right Educational Focus
So what should parents concentrate on when it comes to educational options for their children? Well, this really all boils down to two camps. There are really two schools of thought as far as this crucial issue is concerned.
On the one end are the externalists. This line of thought and ideology centers on the impact of the environment. According to the externalists, kids who excel in life, both in educational and non-educational settings, have to have the right environment. They have to be surrounded with the right resources and tools as well as ambience to maximize their learning potential.
According to this thinking, this external influence, then triggers internal processes that would unlock the full potential of the child. Accordingly, a heavy emphasis on externalists involve the proper building, the proper location, the right composition of the teaching staff, the right books and learning resources, and other external, often objective, resources.
The other end of the equation focuses on internal triggers. According to this school of thought, the biggest influence on a child’s ability, readiness and willingness to learn is essentially internal. It’s the child’s attitude that matters most.
Accordingly, the internalist approach focuses on teaching the child the right attitude so they can prosper regardless of where they find themselves in life. In other words, regardless of the external set of circumstances surrounding a child, they will always be able to manage to tap into certain internal life beliefs and value systems that would enable them to come out on top.
Principles and Characters
Accordingly, this school of thought teaches children to be more proactive. They teach children to show up on time, they teach children to honor their word and place a high value on principles and character.
The interesting thing about the clash between the externalist and internalist school of thought is the fact that internalists don’t really obsess all that much about the quality of the teachers, the physical facilities involved as well as the location of the school. Their primary concern is whether children absorb the necessary attitude that would then unlock all the other resources.
Now, a lot of parents are alarmed at the internalist approach because it cuts against the grain—let’s just be honest here. It’s a philosophy that is really not all that popular because the idea is if you can control the external inputs, you can control the quality of the output.
Little externalist resources
Unfortunately, studies have shown that this is not the case. Indeed, there are many schools in places in the United States where schools have very little externalist resources. They had substandard books, they’re located in high crime areas, the children were learning in physical locations that were falling apart, but these kids end up achieving really high scores in aptitude tests. They then go on to become very successful individuals.
Though there’s a lot to recommend in the internalist approach, it should be obvious that a certain balance has to be struck. But it is our hope, in providing all the education resources on this website, that parents who are looking to enroll their children in a Church of England primary school environment would prioritize both external and internal inputs to ensure the long-term, ultimate success of their children.
The right schools
By success, we’re not just talking about academic success. We’re not just talking about getting into the right schools so they can get plugged into the right path to achieve the right careers. We’re talking about success in their interpersonal lives as well as a higher level of happiness and personal wellbeing.

The great thing about the internet is that it offers a tremendous amount of selection. I think most people would agree on this. Regardless of whatever product category you’re in the market for, you can rest assured that there would be no shortage of online stores ready, willing and eager to do business with you. In fact, you only need to get on Google, enter in some search terms and that magic word “buy” in front and you would be bombarded with both free and paid listings on Google search results.
Of course, a lot of people want to shop as quickly as possible so they click on the first result they get. It doesn’t really matter to them whether the first result is a paid advertiser or not. They just need to get answers really quickly because they’re ready to buy now.
It’s very understandable that you are determined that you need certain types of e-juice. You probably are excited about your purchase but you don’t want to regret your decision. After all, you worked hard for your money. it’s not like money grows on trees. When was the last time you walked down the street and saw a hundred-dollar bill lying around? I would venture to guess that those times are few and far between.
Most of us have to struggle to generate cash. It would be a good idea for you to try to hang on to as much of your cash as possible. The best way to do this, of course, is to expect as much value from whatever it is you buy with your hard-earned money.
When it comes to finding the best e-juice and vaping hardware, maximizing the value you get from online stores is not as obvious or as easy as you think. You really have to be both systematic and methodical in doing online purchases. At the very least, you have to make informed decisions. If you don’t employ a little bit of method and operate in a systematic way, it’s very easy to get ripped off. There, I said it. The cat is out of the bag.
You may be thinking to yourself that given the tremendous amount of guarantees offered to buyers by payment platforms like PayPal, rip off experiences are few and far between. You might even be tempted to think that online merchants would think twice when trying to take unfair advantage of consumers. Well, you would be mistaken. In fact, PayPal is simply overwhelmed by the tremendous amount of customer complaints lodged against online merchants from all over the globe.
No one country has a monopoly on bad merchants or deceptive practices or bait-and-switch tricks and other online sales shenanigans. Still, you would not want to be a victim. This is why it’s really a good idea to figure out how to effectively buy e-juice online. You want to do it right the first time. You want to select an online source once and only once.
This is the ideal. You do your research to pick the right store for you and once you have the right experience with that store, you keep coming back. You no longer have to worry about doing your homework the next time you need supplies for your vaping equipment. The next time you need cheap e-juice, you know where to go.
This is why it’s a good idea to invest a little bit of time and energy into ensuring that you source your materials from the right place. You can’t be lazy about it. You definitely can’t rush through the process. Otherwise, it’s anybody’s guess what kind of experience you will ultimately get.
What complicates all of this is, on the surface, it seems that you are just buying something that is fairly interchangeable. When you type in “cheap e-juice” or “high quality e-juice” on Google, it may seem like the same vendors appear over and over again. In the back of your head, you may be tempted to think that these places are basically the same. You might be tempted to think that once you buy from one place, it’s going to be basically like buying from another place. How different could they be?
You don’t want to find out the answer in the worst way possible. Unfortunately, this is how people find out, the reason why it’s a good idea to do their homework as far as vaping vendors are concerned. Given the relatively low amount of money involved, it’s no surprise that a lot of people don’t pipe up and make a complaint. They just take the hit. They just tell themselves, “Well, that place sucked so I’m just going to move on.”
Unfortunately, when you keep your complaints to yourself, you’re just basically paving the way for somebody else to get ripped off. Why do you think these substandard, low-quality online stores who don’t give a hoot about customer service remain in business? It’s not because they have a tremendous army of customers ready, willing and eager to do business with them again and again. They don’t.
Instead, most of the people they burned simply just shut up. That’s all they did. They think that the amount of time, effort, bother and mental energy required to resolve their purchase problems is greatly outweighed by the value of their time. They could have turned that time into something else that produce a lot more money or they could have engaged in activities that would have been more fulfilling.
Whatever their personal calculations may be, these people did not file a complaint. So, you have to make sure that when you are buying e-juice online, you need to go with a company that has a solid track record. The best way to do this is to simply check online reviews. Don’t get me wrong. A company that has a few or a handful of negative reviews doesn’t necessarily have to be taken off your list.
Let’s face it. No company is perfect. Even the best e-juice supplier ELiquid Depot on the planet is bound to get a negative review every once in a while. However, if you come across a company that seems to only have negative reviews then you have a problem in your hands. It’s probably a good idea to just avoid that company and do business with another firm that has less negative reviews. After all, as the old saying goes, “Where there is smoke, there is fire.” You don’t want to find out in the worst way possible that those negative reviews are all too real and unbiased.
