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.

One of the children in Class was overheard saying, ‘It was always awesome, but now it’s gone up three notches’!

Class 3 had a wonderful time on Thursday going minibeast hunting on the field. The children were equipped with magnifying glasses and checklists to try and find as many insects as possible.

Throughout our learning on ‘Creatures Great and Small’, the children have been looking at different types of animals and their habitats.It was super to see the children explore a local habitat, and use their investigative skills to search the area.

All the children found lots of different minibeasts, including ones that weren’t on the list!
