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.

DLP Boccia Festival 2015

Posted on

On Friday 1st May, Ratcliffe School hosted the first Key Stage 2 Boccia  Competition to be held within the Dawlish Learning Partnership. The idea was to invite local schools together to learn how to play Boccia and then to have a friendly competition which would involve teams playing against each other in a knockout competition.

Boccia is an inclusive seated bowling game and involves two teams playing against each other to bowl their balls as close to the ‘jack’ as possible.

Cockwood v Gatehouse Cricket Match

Posted on

On a beautiful Spring afternoon on the Cockwood Village Green, Cockwood Primary School entertained Gatehouse ACE Academy in an 8 overs per side cricket match.

Gatehouse decided to bowl first and all of the bowlers showed good accuracy and control when bowling. Cockwood scored 149 runs during their innings.

Gatehouse struggled to despatch the Cockwood bowlers to the boundary, due to their exceptional accuracy and could only score 108 during their innings and in the end Cockwood won by 41 runs.

Both teams played really well throughout and showed excellent teamwork and sportsmanship which will help them in future matches.

Well done to all who participated!
