We have recently received the news that we are now a ‘Music Mark’ school.
This celebrates our current music provision and means that we have access to new music materials, training and resources. We have gained this recognition through ensuring our children have access to and engage with a high-quality music education, whilst offering a broad and balanced curriculum with opportunities for performance and extracurricular activities.

Well done to our fantastic Year 6 student who was awarded the Helen Foundation Award this year, for an outstanding contribution to the Arts.
Well done to the children who were awarded the Always Club treat for the Summer Term.
Children who join this club are selected by their teachers for always being polite, kind and helpful.
We enjoyed a morning at Cofton Country Holiday Park, playing on the timber trail and equipment, before enjoying a cake and a drink at the cafe.
We had another set of amazing children enjoy their Always treat this week.
Children are nominated each term for always being polite, hardworking and conscientious.
This group of children enjoyed crazy golf in Dawlish. (more…)
On Wednesday 4th of March six children from Cockwood School Council represented the School with their attendance at the annual Fair Trade Conference held at Westcliff Primary School.
The focus this year was Fair Trade Bananas. The children were lucky enough to meet Simeon Green and Veronica Brown from St Vincent & the Grenadine Islands to the conference.
They spoke passionately about their banana farms and explained how bananas are grown and packed and what a difference Fairtrade premiums mean to them: from schools built and funded in the community to health care centres, plus football fields for the children to play on and wells dug in local villages which means clean drinking water for the local population.
The first children selected to be in the Always Club enjoyed their special reward this week.
If children are always working hard, polite, kind and try their best then they are selected to become part of the Always Club.
This year at Cockwood School we have decided to recognise and reward the children who ALWAYS do their best, who are ALWAYS polite, who ALWAYS smile, who ALWAYS do the right thing and make the right choices.
Awards were given at the end of the Autumn term to the child in each class who has read the most amount of words.
It was very close between a number of children but we had three clear winners.
Staff and pupils were delighted to share a special assembly at the end of Autumn term to award those children who have put in exceptional effort.
The awards were for either Reading, Writing or Maths and three children were chosen from each class.
