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. 

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:


Curriculum Aims

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.


Thank you to the parents and carers who attended our meeting to introduce the changes to the School Curriculum. These have been made due to the introduction of a new National Curriculum from September 1st 2014. Please find below the information shared during the meeting in the form of a Powerpoint presentation reflecting all subjects taught in the school.

We teach the School Curriculum over a 2 year cycle which ensures that all pupils will cover all aspects of the National Curriculum. For details of individual class Long Term Plans during Cycle A (2014-15) and Cycle B (2015-16) please go to the Key Policies section within the virtual office.

Sedgefield DASH

A huge well done to everyone who participated in the Sedgefield DASH. All of the staff are immensely proud of the efforts of all the children. Everyone gave their best and showed tremendous team spirit to cheer on their teammates until the end. In total there were 24 events and Coxhoe came away with an amazing 12 medals including 3 Golds, 4 Silvers and 5 Bronze!

Year 5 and 6

Having a fantastic time!

Coxhoe win the League

Not to be outdone by the boys, the girls of the A team managed to win their league - for only the second time! This is a fantastic achievement and only made possible through teamwork. It went down to the very last game and because the girls' B team managed to take points off their nearest rivals, they claimed the title. Well done!

XC County Finals

Coxhoe produced another superb performance in the Cross Country Finals. In blustery conditions, each member of the team gave everything. The year 3/4 girls won a fantastic Bronze Medal, the Y3/4 Boys finished 7th, the Y5/6 Girls were 5th and the Y5/6 Boys finished 8th. To have four teams in the top 10 in the County (which has around 250 schools) is a fine effort. Keep running!

Coxhoe Win the League Again!

The football teams have had further success to add to their earlier cup wins. The A and B teams both won their respective leagues and even managed to go the whole league season unbeaten. Top effort everyone! 

Castle Challenge (Treasure Chest)

The spring castle challenge set by Mr Jones was to make a treasure box from a shoe box and a roll of tin foil. The team making the most 'precious' treasure box would win 200 team points.

Our fabulous photographs show how creative we are - what a difficult job Mr Jones had to decide upon a winner.

The winning chest was made by Durham Castle. It was full of the most precious treasure of all - photographs of each member.
