Welcome to Coxhoe Primary School
At Coxhoe Primary School we believe in the value of every child and adult who enters our doors. By feeling valued and respected, as an individual, we seek to encourage each person to show value and respect towards one another, joining together to build a happy, forward thinking community. We strive to make our school a place where all are encouraged to reach for and achieve their potential, leaving them equipped and empowered for the next stage of their learning journey.
Our school aims to consider the uniqueness and individual needs of its pupils by delivering a broad, balanced differentiated and relevant curriculum.
ETHOS AND VALUES
Each child is considered as a whole person developing skills, concepts and attitudes necessary for the opportunities and experiences of the future. We aim to prepare children to reach their full potential as responsible citizens.
Our school aspires to value everyone associated with it, irrespective of age, position, race, gender, background or ability. We endeavour to motivate, support and inspire personal, spiritual, emotional and educational growth in a safe and secure environment.
We aim to unite, parents, pupils, governors, staff, L.E.A. and the local community, through agreed school policies, which aim to deliver a quality educational service. This partnership has helped us to develop together the following aims for all our pupils:
The curriculum will encourage all pupils to understand, be interested in and show respect to others, whilst also developing their own self esteem.
The curriculum will enable pupils to become literate and numerate, having confidence when communicating, working with and responding to others.
The curriculum will enable pupils to develop analytical problem solving skills.
The curriculum will develop independence in our pupils enabling them to make healthy, safe life choices for themselves and others.
COXHOE PRIMARY CURRICULUM
Please see class pages for a long term overview. Their 'What we've been up to' pages also provide a flavour of the breadth of curriculum offered.
We are excited to be running our first well being evening for parents, carers and children on Thursday 4th July 3:15- 5pm. This will be an informal drop in session where there will be fun activities, refreshments and representatives from the NHS and charities to aid awareness of organisations that can help with well being. We are in the initial organisational stages so if anyone has any ideas on how to make the evening as beneficial as possible we would love to hear from you.
Voluntary Competition - Why not use your creative skills during the Easter Holidays to design a poster to promote Well Being? It might advertise our upcoming drop in evening ( on Thursday 4th July 3:15- 5pm) or give your top tips for how to be healthy. It can be any size and on any material. The competition closes on June 4th and we will announce winners on Friday 6th June.
As part of the build-up to the Champion Cup Finals held at St. James' Park, the trophies landed at our school! A huge thank you to the SSP for hosting the event, which included Tag Rugby games, as well as the chance to get a photo with the trophy.
Boccia Team Win Bronze
Today our brilliant Boccia team competed in their county finals tournament in Spennymoor. After a tough day playing against 6 other schools they ended the day in third place winning the bronze medal. Well done to all of those involved.
World Book Day
The Netball team were crowned league champions this week! After going through all of their matches undefeated, they managed to secure a 2-1 win in the final. The team improved with each game and thoroughly deserved their success.
Year 2 - Year 6 Anti- Bullying Theatre Performance
Firehorse Theatre came and performed their fabulous play The B Word. In the play new girl Danni was bullied and the audience was able to see the devastating effect this had on her. The audience were asked to work with Danni to help her stop her bullies.
No one should be bullied. If you are bullied or see someone else being bullied please tell a trusted adult so it can be stopped.
Tell it, share it, stop it!
Remembrance at Coxhoe
Coxhoe Primary Remembrance Day was on Thursday 8th November. The children took part in activities linked to various topics about soldiers. We had an assembly to share what we had learned and show what we had made. We all joined in the 2 minute silence at 11am to remember those who have fought for us.
SCHOOL HOLIDAY DATES can be found in the Recent Letters section of the website. Please check carefully when booking your holiday. Holidays taken during term time are very disruptive for children and research has shown that children with poor attendance tend to achieve less in both primary and secondary school.
Holidays during term time will only be authorised by the Head Teacher in exceptional circumstance.
