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.

A very British Day at Cockwood School

Posted on

Last Thursday we celebrated anything and everything British in our school. Children came in dressed in red, white and blue and Sally put on a very British Brunch for lunch, including amongst other things Sausages, Scrambled eggs, Waffles and of course Sticky Pudding!

Class 1 reviewed the facts around the European Union Referendum and discussed the Ins and Outs of the campaign. They held a vote in the afternoon which resulted in 25 Remain and 5 Leave votes. While some children were watching the all-important England football match in the afternoon, the remaining members of Class 1 came up with a fantastic short play about the Suffragettes, a women’s organisation which fought for the women’s right to vote in the late 19th/early 20th centuries. The Class 3 audience enjoyed the performance so much, they requested for it to be performed a second time!

Class 1 learns about Synagogues

Posted on

Class 1 set up the classroom so that the girls were separated from the boys.

We learned about the features of synagogues through an interesting film clip.

We then looked carefully at artefacts found in a synagogue and discussed their important features and how they link to the Jewish belief in one God.

Some of us wore coverings for our heads, because Jewish people do this as a sign of respect to God.

Vacancy – Parent Governor

Posted on

There is a vacancy for a parent governor on our school’s governing body and I am writing to invite nominations to fill this vacancy. Please think about becoming a governor, or encouraging others to volunteer.

Parent governors are welcomed as valued members of the governor team and play an important role; the governing body works together as a group, meeting at least once every half term. Together they are responsible for the strategic direction of the school, promoting high standards of educational achievement and ensuring our resources are used to maximum impact. Life as a governor is interesting and varied and we feel sure that there are parents prepared to take on this important role and give their time and commitment to helping us to continue to improve the school’s performance.

Cockwood School Farmers Market – Friday 24th June from 9am

Posted on

The first ever Cockwood School Farmers Market is one not to be missed. Boasting a variety of delicious locally produced food, drink and crafted gifts.

Our class has worked hard to research and invite the very best of local suppliers. Stalls will include fresh meats, fruit and vegetables, eggs, beers, cakes, plants, soaps and a whole host of other local foodstuffs and locally made crafts.

As part of an enterprise project to start and run our own sustainable business we are pleased to announce the launch of the Cockwood School’s very own range of tasty chutneys. The brand new range of flavoursome Harbourside Chutneys have been lovingly researched and taste tested by the class 1 children. They finally settled on the three winning combinations: plum and violet, rhubarb with a hint of violet, and strawberry and apple.  All of which will be on sale for the very first time at our Farmers Market.

Ukulele Club play together with children from Starcross Primary

Posted on

This week in Ukulele Club, the children were joined by some of the pupils from Starcross Primary to learn and play some songs together.

For the past 2 weeks Ruth from Starcross has been helping the children to learn to play the ukulele, and as a parting gift she brought along some of her own ukulele and guitar players so that we could all play together. She taught the children to play a part of ‘Thinking Out Loud’ by Ed Sheeran, along with other songs that the children have learnt along the way.
