A Dawlish Learning Partnershp School

Welcome to Cockwood Primary School

At Cockwood Primary School our vision has been designed by our pupils. We have a vision which is represented through pictures and we aim to help pupils reflect on their learning and choices they make in order to become better citizens and friends to each other.

We encourage a sense of teamwork through our house system but also in everything that we do each day. Learning is a journey, which poses challenges on the way, but we encourage perseverance and independence – skills much needed in everyday life. Through our creative approach to learning and within a safe and caring environment, our children grow and succeed and provide a positive contribution to our school and community.

Mindfulness at Cockwood

Posted on

We are able to offer some pupils the opportunity to work with Helen Wilson from ‘Open Minds’ to explore the technique of Mindfulness.

Mindfulness is an approach available now in many Devon schools, where groups of pupils or even whole classes can learn techniques to help them deal with daily life, school pressures and sometimes those situations outside school which can cause anxiety in children.

The sessions are fun, light and very interactive. Each session will include games, activities and mindfulness practices designed to deepen awareness, relax the mind and body to enhance emotional wellbeing.
