Through teamwork and perseverance, we encourage each other to be the best that we can be. Our ambition is to provide creative opportunities to develop skills in leadership and entrepreneurship, for pupils to reflect on how far they have come and how to be risk takers. They will aspire to be confident communicators, respectful of each other and considerate members of our school family and beyond.

As a school we embrace opportunities to ensure our community will continue to grow and thrive so that we can empower children to have the wings to fly and become tomorrow’s successful citizens.

Hard copies of any information on our website can be requested free of charge from the school office.

Celebrating Fair Trade Fortnight

Posted on

On Wednesday 4th of March six children from Cockwood School Council represented the School with their attendance at the annual Fair Trade Conference held at Westcliff Primary School.

The focus this year was Fair Trade Bananas. The children were lucky enough to meet Simeon Green and Veronica Brown from St Vincent & the Grenadine Islands to the conference.

They spoke passionately about their banana farms and explained how bananas are grown and packed and what a difference Fairtrade premiums mean to them: from schools built and funded in the community to health care centres, plus football fields for the children to play on and wells dug in local villages which means clean drinking water for the local population.
