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.

In addition, they visited a school and spent the afternoon in Wandsworth, enjoyed seeing Charlie and the Chocolate Factory in the West End, and also had a great day at Legoland on the return journey.
