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.

Cockwood Pupils get a ‘taste’ of France!

Posted on

As part of a whole programme of primary outreach across a number of subject areas, a group of our year 5 and 6 pupils are visiting Dawlish Community College for additional French lessons. The children will learn more about the French language and culture through games and songs with Ms Noble, one of the Modern Foreign Language teachers at the college.

The pupils will visit the college every week for six weeks and complete the course with a celebratory Crepe tasting session, which parents are invited to attend. This will be a great opportunity for the children to showcase what they have learnt throughout the course.

What a brilliant afternoon of fun and competitive sport. Children competed in races ranging from the 800 metres to the egg and spoon. A super well done to Cofton House who took the trophy this year – with just one point in it!

Thankyou to Ian Birdsey for taking the photos.

DLP Arts Carnival

Posted on

We were delighted when over 200 family, friends, teachers and governors joined us on Monday 16th June at The Langstone Cliff Hotel to celebrate the Arts with a ‘Carnival’ theme.

Some amazing pieces of artwork were produced during the DLP arts week by children within our learning partnership. Many children worked with professional artists from Daisi to produce art from many different genres, including screen printing, willow sculptures and batik.

Exminster, Kenn, Kenton, Cockwood, Starcross, Gatehouse and Westcliff Primary Schools, Dawlish Community College and Oaklands Park School were involved in the project and showcased their art. There were also performances from the DLP Choir, DLP Wind Band, Kenton Dance Group, Exminster Dance Group and Cockwood Samba Ensemble.

Please have a look at the video below which captures a flavour of the night!

Thanks to both the fantastic Daisi artists and Roger and Annie Kirk from The Helen Foundation whose funding allowed the Daisi artists to support our children in this project.  Roger commented  “what a superb event the DLP celebration was… we thoroughly enjoyed the evening.  Such a  wealth of artistic talent in so many areas!  Congratulations to everyone involved, young people, teachers and DLP staff.  It was terrific to see so many parents and relatives there, too.
Quite overwhelming!”
